When are the auditions?
We are continuing to hold auditions in many cities throughout the country. Now that the show is open, we are always looking for boys as future "Billys" and "Michaels". Please look at the area called LOCATIONS with audition dates and locations. Back to Top
When does the show open?
The show opened on November 13th, 2008. Back to Top
What will I have to do in the audition?
You will be asked to learn different dance combinations. You might learn ballet, tap or a funky street dance.
You may also be asked to sing.
We'll have a pianist there to play with you. Because both Billy and Michael are 11 years old, the voices
for the boys will need to be unbroken voices.
Sometimes we ask kids to show us their own favorite style of dance. That's when you can show us all your favorite steps, and things that you're good at. Back to Top
What should I bring to the audition?
When attending and audition, please bring:
*A picture and resume or recent photo
*Boys should wear comfortable clothes, not dance tights, and bring sneakers, tap, jazz and ballet shoes
