Open Audition Registration

Keighley Musical Theatre Company - Joseph

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for a part in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

It is essential that you read the following information carefully before registering.

You are here because you want to be part of the show! I donít blame you; it is going to be yet another amazing Keighley Musical Theatre Company production! In order to make this show a success, we will require 100% commitment from the entire cast that is selected.

Important: You must disclose in your registration, any commitments that will affect your ability to attend any calls. Furthermore, we ask that you do not take on any new commitments that may affect your attendance or performance.
In such cases the company reserves the right to re-cast the part.

We understand that things do come up. We all have family issues, unexpected work hours, sickness, etc. These things are rare, but understandable. However, laziness will not be tolerated. If you are repeatedly late for rehearsals without reason, or are absent too many times, we will start to question whether you are completely dedicated to your fellow cast mates and the show.

If you feel that commitment will be a problem - please do not apply!

We feel it is best to be upfront about this. It is not meant to upset anyone, but rather prove to you that we are serious about making this show the best it can possibly be. At the end of the day, you will benefit from having all of your cast mates as fully committed to the production as yourself and your production team.

Information applying to all auditions
You will be provided with the music for one or two songs depending on the part. You will be asked to perform these individually, and we don't want you holding the words or music - please learn them.
You will be taught some dance moves at the workshop, and auditions for most parts will include this. If you are unable to attend the workshop, there will be a brief opportunity to learn the moves prior to your audition.

Rehearsals
Rehearsals will begin on 20th April 2020. A full rehearsal schedule will be available soon, however as a guide, you should be prepared for the following initial calls:

  • Mondays - Kids Singing - 18:00 - 20:00
  • Mondays - Ladies Singing - 19:30 - 21:30
  • Tuesdays - Men Singing - 19:30 - 21:30
  • Wednesdays - Kids - 18:00 - 20:00
  • Wednesdays - Except Kids - 19:30 - 21:30

  • There will be no rehearsals for most of August - if possible, please try to fit your holidays in then.
  • During September, and in the run up to the show, there will also be a number of Sunday afternoon full-runs.


For those that have participated in shows before, you would be familiar with how demanding rehearsals can be. For those that are new to musical theatre, it will be a whole new experience!

It is a condition of the society that all cast of the show become members of the society, and pay the appropriate performance fees (You do not need to be a member to audition)

These fees will be reviewed at our AGM, but are currently:

  • Society Membership(2019/20) - Full (18+) £15/year, Junior £10/year
  • Performance Fees - Adult (18+) £15/show, Junior £10/show
  • See our Membership Page for more details

In addition, all applicants must agree to abide by the society's rules including a commitment to appropriate behaviour

You (and parent/guardian where appropriate) also agree to the Society using your name and photographs in publicity information during this show, and in the future.
As a responsible society, we take great care of your personal information, and comply with GDPR regulations. You will be provided with information when you join.

Audition Fees
To help recover some of the costs, there is a small fee to audition.
Fully paid-up members are exempt from this fee, so unless you are a 2019/20 member, please bring £2.00 with you to the audition.

Only continue if you do agree with the conditions set out on this page.

The information gathered on this form is considered confidential, and is only shared with representatives of the theatre company that need this information. If you are not successful in your audition, your information is retained for no more than 6 months. We retain the information of successful applicants for no less than 6 months after the final performance date.
