Theater auditions for Kiss Me, Kate and fall classes

The Patel Conservatory Theater department will have auditions for their fall theater classes, as well as their production of the popular musical, Kiss Me, Kate.

Auditions will be:

August 11, 2012
1 to 4 p.m.
August 22, 2012 (Note date change)
5 to 8 p.m.

Auditions for fall classes are for students in grades 2 through college, and allow instructors to place students in the most appropriate class for their age and skill levels. 

General auditions start at 1 p.m and participants will take three 45-minute classes in dance, music and theater. You’ll receive class placement immediately following the audition.

To audition for Kiss Me, Kate, please come prepared with a 30-second monologue and 16 bars of a song, preferably a traditional musical theater song. Bring sheet music if possible, an accompanist will be available.

PCYT’s fall production of Kiss Me, Kate will be performed by advanced students in grades 7 through college who are enrolled in a Patel Conservatory theater class. There is a $15 audition fee for new or lapsed students.

This play-within-a-play is a fun, melodious and sophisticated musical, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter.

Students in the show will participate in an advanced performance-based program that allows them to put into practice the skills they gain in the classroom. The rehearsal process is both nurturing and demanding and culminates in a series of ticketed performances open to the public.

Kiss Me, Kate will be performed in the TECO Theater at the Patel Conservatory Nov. 8 - 10, 2012 and Nov. 15 - 17, 2012.

Reservations are required for all auditions. To reserve your audition slot, please call our theater department at 813.222.6414 or visit
