After all auditions are completed for a Jr. Production, the artistic team will schedule callback auditions. Callbacks are second auditions that help the team decide the best actors for certain roles in the production. Please be assured that if your child does not receive a callback audition time we have already made a decision regarding which role they will be cast as in the production.

Cast List

Cast lists will be posted prior to the first rehearsal for each MTC Jr. Production. It will include the child's name and the name of the character they have been cast as for the production. In the case of large production casts, we will double cast many roles. In this instance the double casted actor will perform 50% of the performances as the double casted character and 50% of the performances as an ensemble member of the cast. Each cast member of the production will participate in every performance.
