Thinking About Auditioning?
Between 50-70 children K-12 participate in LYT productions. Unlike some youth theatre companies, we do our very best not cut children during the audition process. Unfortunately, sometimes we must make cuts simply due to capacity issues. We do try to find parts for everyone who wants to participate, as long as children and parents agree to the cast member responsibilities.
Being in an LYT production is a serious time commitment. Rehearsals are typically five days a week (Monday – Friday) from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. for about eight weeks, at our rehearsal space at 202 N. Main Street in Lexington. During the final week of rehearsals (“tech week”) all rehearsals are required. Tech week starts the Saturday before the weekend of the show and includes Sunday afternoon. Be prepared to stay late if needed.
The out-of-pocket cost to participate in an LYT production is typically less than $150 per child, which includes script rental, costume rental, t-shirt, cast party ticket and food during tech week.
Lexington Youth Theatre General Age Guidelines
Each show may not allow all ages. The following guidelines are in place as a general rule. A person auditioning for an LYT production must be 5 years old by August 31st and in Kindergarten, and no older than 18 by August 31st or High School graduation, whichever comes first.
This is in line with the Davidson County public school ages for K-12 grades. (Adopted September 2008 Board Meeting)
Parents of children K-2nd grade: A parent or adult chaperone 18 or older must be present at all rehearsals.
