BLUE STAR TEEN ENSEMBLE AUDITIONS:
(Must be ages 15-18 by submission deadline - August 1)

Kansas City’s Starlight Theatre and St. Louis’ MUNY are joining forces to co-produce this summer’s production of On Your Feet!.  Starlight Theatre is looking for local teen talent to join the professional cast of On Your Feet! during its Kansas City run.

Starlight is looking to cast the following for its teen ensemble:

  • 10 skilled dancers who also sing
  • 8 offstage singers

Starlight Theatre is actively seeking a multi-cultural cast and utilizes non-traditional casting in their productions when ethnicity is not germane to the role or overall production.

Applicants may submit materials for both the dancing and singing components or just singing.  Applicants cannot be cast as both a dancer and offstage singer.

  • You must be ages 15-18 on July 26, 2021 (the submission deadline). Seniors who graduated class of 2021 may audition.
