Auditions are full

Due to the huge response to Disney’s Frozen Jr, our audition slots are full! If you signed up for an audition time, your slot is confirmed. If you joined the waitlist, please keep an eye on your e-mail for more information.

How many students will be cast in Disney’s Frozen Jr?
Our cast will include 50-55 students. Nearly 200 students will audition for our production. We’d love to cast everyone, but it just isn’t possible. As a very rough estimate, in our cast: 15–20 students will likely be in Kindergarten through 4th grade, 20–25 students will likely be in grades 5-8, and 10–15 students will likely be in grades 9–12. We need students at all of these ages to successfully tell our story.

Why do you limit the number of audition slots?
Auditioning is a big process! Auditioning well takes careful preparation by both the production team and the students. We do our best to honor the time and effort of students, families, and production teams by limiting audition slots to a number that can be thoughtfully evaluated.

Are there other opportunities to be involved?
Yes! Older students (Grades 7+) can assist in many backstage, technical, and production positions. If you are interested, please e-mail Young Footliters. We encourage students of all ages to register for our Summer Camps and school year classes. These opportunities build skills, friendships, and creativity. They also include many valuable performance opportunities much like a Young Footliters production! Visit the Classes page to learn more.

Welcome to Auditions!

Auditions are open to all students currently in Kindergarten through 12th grade at the time of auditions. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to audition. The information below contains all the details about auditioning for our show. Please be sure to read it carefully! Whether you are brand new to Young Footliters, or a seasoned pro, we can't wait to see you at auditions!

If you have any questions about the audition process, or about volunteering with Young Footliters, please contact Elizabeth Tracey, CCPA Artistic Producer.

City Circle’s High School Musical and Young Footliters Frozen Jr are both casting high school students this summer. It’s not possible for a student to be in both casts due to the overlapping rehearsal schedule. Students are welcome to sign up to audition for one or both productions. However, if you accept a part in High School Musical (Audition dates: March 31 / April 1), you won’t be able to audition for Frozen Jr (Audition dates: April 13-15). We will open those audition slots up for students eligible to be cast. Both productions will be great experiences!

Audition Details:

Casting is open to actors in Kindergarten through 12th grade for the 2022–23 School Year.

Thursday, April 13 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Friday, April 14 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
Saturday, April 15 from 10:00 Am to 1:00 PM.

 CCPA Rehearsal Hall, 860 Quarry Rd, Coralville. This is the former Antique Car Museum in the Coralville River Landing. The entrance will be marked "Young Footliters Auditions".

Audition Material:

All auditioning students will perform a song and a monologue (if they want solo lines) during their audition. They may be asked to do a short improvisation (no preparation necessary for that).

Preparing for Auditions:

  1. Music Audition:
    All students should select and prepare one of the Audition Songs included in the link below. If young students find the Audition Songs challenging, they can choose to sing either Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star or Happy Birthday. Students who already have songs of 32 bars or less prepared from voice lessons or previous auditions may choose to perform those songs. Please bring piano sheet music and an accompanist will be provided. If you are uncertain, or if this is your first audition, you will be most successful using one of the Audition Songs provided. Click the link below to access the audition songs. Please print and practice a song of your choice. You may select any song regardless of gender, style, or content. If you have trouble printing, copies of the Audition Songs are available in the lobby of the Coralville Arts Center.


  1. Reading Audition:
     If any student is interested in a solo speaking part, they should memorize a monologue of their choice of 1 minute or less. Students should choose a monologue that shows their ability to create an interesting character. There are books of monologues available online and at most public libraries. There are also monologues available at the "Young Footliters Auditions" stand on the lobby counter in the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts.

Participation Fee & Scholarships:

For students cast in our production, Young Footliters has an $95 participation fee. This fee helps to make our show possible and covers a portion of our production costs such as costumes, sets, props, painting, royalty rights, performance and rehearsal facilities. 

We believe theatre participation should be possible for every student. Young Footliters is committed to providing scholarships to all students who require one, and we never turn away a student for inability to pay participation fees. Please follow this link for more information:
