Audition Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
  • Where will auditions be held?
    Auditions will take place at the Bedford Hills Community House, located at 74 Main Street, Bedford Hills, NY.  Click here for detailed location and transportation info.


  • How old is the cast?
    BCT productions are for both adults and children! It’s one of the best things about being involved with BCT.  There is a place for everyone 8 years and older.


  • Will I need to sing?
    Yes, this is a musical after all! Please be prepared to sing 16 bars of a song that you know really well and that will show off your voice.  A song that reminds you of a song from the show you are auditioning for would be a good choice. But any song that you sing well is fine, even if its “Happy Birthday!” Bring sheet music for the piano accompanist if you have it.


  • What should I wear?
    Wear comfortable clothing and shoes, and be ready to dance a little.


  • Is there a chorus for the show and if so how do I participate?
    Yes, there is a chorus.  Please note that you do need to audition to be in the chorus and there is a fee for participation as mentioned below.


  • What should I bring?
    Please bring a photo of yourself if you have one handy. This does NOT need to be a professional head-shot, a snapshot or print out will do just fine.


  • Where do I sign up for auditions?
    We’re using an online sign-up system that is available lower on this page, or can be accessed directly by clicking this link.


  • What if all of the online auditions slots are filled up?
    If you can’t find an open slot that works for you, please email and explain the situation.  We will find a way to make it work.


  • I’m still unsure or not good with computers. Can I sign up another way?
    We highly encourage using the online system mentioned above since it makes it easier for everyone involved.  If there are extenuating circumstances please email us at and we’ll accommodate you.


  • I forgot or don’t want to sign up. Can I just show up for an audition?
    Yes, we will accept walk-in auditions. You may need to wait for an available slot to open up however, so please be patient.
