Joseph Callback Details - Saturday, December 4, 2021

Congratulations On Your Callback!

Callbacks are a great opportunity for the Directing team to see more of your talents and abilities. This page will have all the information you need to know to help you prepare.  

During callbacks, we are looking not only for your vocal ability but also for your ability to hold the attention of the directing team. If a character you are called back for is in a song with other characters you will only be responsible for learning the part of the character(s) you are called back for in your CYT account. 

Here are some additional callback tips:
  • Release yourself of all expectations (yes, ALL. Meaning, you should not have any expectations. Zero. None.). Callbacks are not in your control. Your job is to show up, do your best, and go home. Release yourself from the pressure that you are in control and that you must do everything correctly. There are hundreds of factors that go into casting a show. 
  • Be open and prepared for anything. The directing team has been known to change things up in the room at the last minute. It would be in your best interest to be familiar with the entire show. 
  • Arrive at callbacks EARLY. Early is a least 10 minutes before your scheduled time. If you walk in the door "on time", you're already late. 
  • Get sleep the night before your callback. It's imperative that you're well-rested. Callbacks are long and high-intense days.

Have You Ever Wanted to Understand the Casting Process?

Check out this video, The Casting Process, where Dr. Heather LaForge discusses the CYT casting process. This is a very small example of how complex a casting process can be. Imagine this video with 30+ students.
