Desert Star Youth Theater is still accepting video auditions for male performers ages 15-19 to play principal and ensemble roles in both our summer productions of INTO THE WOODS JR. (performing July 26-27) and HEATHERS, HIGH SCHOOL EDITION (performing August 15-17).

If you are only auditioning for ONE show – Please prepare to sing one minute of a song in the style of the show you have chosen (Heathers – contemporary musical theatre, or pop-rock; Into The Woods- classical musical theatre). You may sing a song from the show for which you have chosen to audition.

If you are auditioning for BOTH shows – Please prepare two one-minute song selections, one in the style of Heathers (contemporary musical theatre / pop-rock), and one in the style of Into The Woods (classical musical theatre). You may sing songs from both shows.

If cast in one of the shows, there is a participation fee of $250. However, this summer we are also offering a Two-Show Discount: if you do both shows, instead of paying $250 for each, you’ll only pay $390 total! Limited scholarships and multi-family member discounts may be available. These fees are non-refundable, and make up the primary budget for the shows, paying for performance royalties, costumes, props, sets, music tracks, lighting, etc.
If you or someone you know is interested, click the link below to find more info and get started with your audition! The deadline for submissions is June 8th. If you have any questions, or if you need more time to submit your audition, please email or call 801-266-2600.
*DSYT will be performing Heathers, the Musical – High School Edition.
Certain content from the original musical has been altered or removed by authors to make the show more age appropriate and change its rating to PG-13. Changes include: the removal of curse words and changes to lyrics and stage directions to remove displays/references to onstage smoking, drinking, and R-rated sexual activity.
