Youth Auditions for our 22/23 season will be held at MYArts, 1055 E. Mifflin St. on Sunday July 31st and August 1st from 5-8pm. SIGN UP HERE for a time slot

We are excited you are interested in trying out for the shows in our upcoming season.  We promise you we will do everything we can to create a positive, comfortable, fun experience!

What to prepare for and to expect for an audition:

  • Young performers will be brought into the audition room in small groups. We will do some group warmup exercises to activate your body, voice and imagination.
  • We will do a brief storytelling game. No preparation is necessary for this.
  • We will give you a chance to read a part from one of the script excerpts which you can find here:  Youth Audition Piece 1 and Youth Audition Piece 2. You can choose either piece to read and any role to read. You do not have to read a scene to audition.
  • We may ask you to demonstrate any special skills you have, such as doing a cartwheel, or whistling, singing a very short song, or even doing a favorite dance move. So think about what you'd like to show us you can do!

After the audition:

  • Fill out the information form that will be available at the check-in desk before you leave, or electronically through the QR Code posted at the audition table. If you know of firm conflicts you have (like a family vacation, or another show you're in, or an important dance class or recital) please put that down on your information form.
  • We will try to get back to everyone within 2 weeks to let you know if we need to see you again for a specific show. We will focus on casting our first two shows: Mole Hill Stories and A Christmas Carol. We will probably not cast any pre-adolescent actors for our spring shows until mid-fall.
  • If you have not heard from us by mid-August, feel free to reach out to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to check on where things stand



MOLE HILL STORIES: adapted by Alvaro Saar Rios, directed by Jamal Howard. Sept 13 – Oct 30, 2022. Starts rehearsal September 13th

A CHRISTMAS CAROL: by Charles Dickens, newly adapted by Charlotte T. Martin, directed by Brian Cowing. Nov 1 – Dec 23, 2022. Starts rehearsal November 4th.

  • All shows include young performers alongside professional adult actors.
  • All casts seek to include diversity of race, ethnicity/cultural backgrounds, and gender identification.
  • A Christmas Carol and Peter Pan have the most roles available and the largest age range (ages 8-18).
  • Both Mole Hill Stories and Finder... seek actors who can speak some Spanish.
  • Peter Pan is a musical; all actors cast will be required to sing and dance.
  • Mole Hill Stories is a bi-lingual (English & Spanish) play of 3 fables about teamwork. Characters are animals, such as Raccoon, Mole, and Skunk. Actors will also become natural elements like wind, water and flowers. The ability to speak some Spanish is helpful.
  • Finder & The North Star is a story of a young person who makes a silent wish, and embarks on a magical journey in search of fulfilling it.
  • You do not have to have previous acting or CTM experience to be cast.


  • Rehearsals are held at MYArts, 1055 E. Mifflin St.
  • A Christmas Carol & Peter Pan perform at Overture Center.
  • Mole Hill Stories and Finder & The North Star perform at MYArts
  • Rehearsals are weeknights and weekends; schedules vary based on the show and the role. A detailed rehearsal schedule is sent out 2-3 weeks before the first rehearsal.
  • Some conflicts can be accommodated but we ask that you prioritize the show if you are cast since there is a limited amount of time for rehearsals and performances.

CTM's adult general season auditions have passed, but we are always looking to work with talented, dedicated actors! If you would like to submit yourself for future consideration, please send a virtual audition of no more than 3 minutes to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

This audition can include a re-telling in your own words of a fable or myth; yourself singing a song, whether it's a song from a show or something else; a short monologue that displays your acting ability and range; any special skills you may have (dance, instruments, odd talents, etc.), or anything else you would like us to know about you

We welcome actors of any gender identity to play any character. This season’s shows are heavily reliant on racial and cultural diversity in casting to effectively tell the stories.
