PPCT participants are selected after general auditions held before each production. These auditions are thorough and examine candidates’ interest and attitude as well as their aptitude in the Music/Theatre Arts.
Elementary Productions: Children participating in these auditions do not need to have prior experience in theatre or prepare material to perform. At the auditions, candidates will take part in a physical and vocal warm-up routine and play theatre games.
Advanced Productions: Children auditioning for this level should have several years of theatrical experience. High standards of discipline and commitment are observed.
Musicals: Prepare sixteen bars of a song from a musical. Auditions also include dance routines and reading.
Plays: Prepare a monologue (no more than one minute) from a classical or contemporary play depending on the production being produced.
