Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr
Take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. Based on the record-breaking West End production and the beloved film and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr. is one blockbuster that audiences will find "Truly Scrumptious."
Welcome to Auditions!
Auditions are open to all students entering Kindergarten through 12th grade. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to audition. The information below contains all the details about auditioning for our show. Please be sure to read it carefully! Whether you're brand new to Young Footliters, or a seasoned pro, we can't wait to see you at auditions!
If you have any questions about the audition process, or about volunteering with Young Footliters, please contact Elizabeth Tracey, CCPA Artistic Producer.
Details on these auditions will be released in Spring 2022. Check back again soon!
Participation Fee & Scholarships:
For students cast in our production, Young Footliters has an $85 participation fee. This fee helps to make our show possible, and covers a portion of our production costs such as costumes, sets, props, painting, royalty rights, performance and rehearsal facilities.
We believe theatre participation should be possible for every student. Young Footliters is committed to providing scholarships to all students who require one, and we never turn away a student for inability to pay participation fees. Scholarships are available through the Revier Family Scholarship Fund for families with financial need. Please contact Evan Hilsabeck to receive a scholarship form.
Performances of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr will take place at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts.
Tickets for this production will go on sale May 11, 2022. Check back soon for more details!
