Detailed Audition Information and Registration:

Please read before registering or coming to auditions


A primary goal of the NCCT Teen Program is to foster arts education. Auditions are an important part of the theatrical process. They are an opportunity for the directors to find actors who fit specific qualities based on the needs and characteristics of the roles of a particular show. Casting is based solely on these auditions, and all auditioners are eligible for any role. All roles have value and are important to the show. As much as we would like to cast everyone, due to the number of auditioners, LOH restrictions, and other constraints that may not be possible.

A note from the Teen Governance Group about Anything Goes: The version of Anything Goes we are presenting has been revised to exclude offensive language, often in regard to race, that was present in the original version. We acknowledge this history and encourage our audience, performers, and staff to reference the newly-revised 2022 version of Anything Goes with any questions regarding the content of the show and to contact us with any concerns.

COVID Vaccination is required to participate. Please bring proof of Covid vaccination to the audition. Questions: Email

You will directly enter the green room for registration. Please be prepared to change from street shoes to your dance or other indoor shoes at that point, especially if it is snowy or wet.

Check-in is from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. There is an optional audition workshop at 9:45am which we encourage teens new to the program to attend. We will have an accompanist for you; a capella auditions are strongly discouraged.

Rehearsal Conflicts

When registering, please select ALL rehearsal dates where you have a scheduling conflict. There is also a box where you can type your conflict information and explain the conflict. Be sure to check your school AND family calendars as conflicts reported after auditions could result in the production staff recasting your role. (Please make a note for yourself about the conflicts you list as they will not be included in your confirmation email). Rehearsal Schedule Teen – Anything Goes 12.6.22

There will be both a dance audition and a singing audition.

Dance Auditions

For the dance auditions, please wear comfortable clothing. Please have character shoes (for girls), jazz flats (for guys) or clean sneakers if you do not have dance shoes. If you have tap shoes, please bring them as well. There will be time to change between the dance audition and the singing auditions if you would like to switch from dance clothes to vocal performance wear.

Vocal Auditions

Please be prepared to sing a song from a musical that best shows your range and personality. Consider this portion of the audition an opportunity to showcase your acting as well. We suggest choosing a song in a similar style to the show. The length of your selection should be 32 bars (usually about one verse and one chorus). (If you choose to sing something longer, the creative team may ask you to stop before finishing. This does not mean you won’t get a callback; it simply means they have heard what they need.) We will have an accompanist available to you. You must bring your own sheet music (See “Other Information” below for sheet music suggestions). Please do not audition a cappella.

Bring a water bottle and snacks/lunch.


For callbacks, scripts for readings and sheet music will be provided. In addition to reading various parts, you may be asked to sing parts of songs from the show. It is recommended that you familiarize yourself with the following songs as sections will be sung during callbacks:

  1. Blow, Gabriel, Blow

  2. Goodbye Little Dream, Goodbye

  3. The Gypsy In Me

  4. Be Like The Bluebird

  5. Easy To Love

  6. De-Lovely


First rehearsal and read through (FULL CAST) will be Saturday, January 14th 10am – 4pm at the Hartford United Church (Mandatory parent meeting at 10am). Rehearsals will be Tuesday and Thursday nights at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in White River Junction ( 6 – 8pm) and Saturdays from 1 – 7pm at The Lebanon Ballet School. (Not everyone will be called to every rehearsal) ALL CAST is expected to be at full day (12 – 9pm) rehearsals during February break (2/19/22 – 2/26/22) and every rehearsal thereafter.

Other Information

Cast members will be asked to pay a $25 materials fee (due at the first rehearsal, 1/14) to help cover the cost of the production.

This is the only audition date. If you absolutely cannot make it, we won’t be able to cast you as a lead, but there may still be a chance for you to be in the ensemble. Please email Amye at

Sheet Music: A good place to find audition music is You can choose your song, choose a key that works for your voice, download the sheet music for the pianist, and even listen to your song to get comfortable with the arrangement. This last part is important as sheet music does not necessarily match the cast recording you’ve been singing along to.
