Madagascar auditions are open to students ages 8-14. You do NOT need to be registered in a CYT class to audition for this summer production. Age eligibility is determined by the audition date, meaning you must be between 8-14 years old on, or by, June 9th in order to audition.

Note: If you are 14 on June 9th, but will be turning 15 during the rehearsal process, you still fall within the Madagascar audition category, and will not be eligible for the Teen show, as you must be 15 years old by June 9th in order to audition for that show.

Those cast in Madagascar (ages 13-14) who are registered for CYT's Overnight Teen Retreat will be excused from rehearsals during that week, but expected to list it as a conflict on their form.
