Spots at our school are filled when students pass auditions and are placed at the school in the CMS School Options Lottery. The lottery(s) for 2019-20 have already taken place. While some grades or majors may be full or have wait lists, there is still time for students to move or change their minds before next year.
We will have auditions in April to fill any spots that are open or open up after the lottery. If there are grades or majors with wait lists after the lottery, we will first call those on the wait list, and then we will call students who passed April auditions. There is no guarantee that students who pass auditions will be placed at the school, but we do encourage students to audition.
Please submit your request by March 25 for April auditions.
We will contact families by email to audition.
We are firming up audition dates. The schedule for April so far:
April 9, starting at 4:30: Band, Orchestra, Piano, Dance, Chorus
April 10, starting at 4:30: Theatre, Musical Theatre
April 24, by 3:30 pm: Visual Arts portfolios due. (middle schoolers must also attend mini-lesson 4/29- by appointment)
April 29, starting at 4:30: Technical Theatre, Middle School Visual Art mini-lesson (middle school portfolio due 4/24)
Costuming date TBA
After April auditions:
We will continue to accept Audition Requests for all grades and majors. The decision to audition students after April will be based on expected available seats in that grade and major. Also, students moving into CMS after this school year will get a courtesy audition. They would only get a spot if there was room available, after we fill spots with any students who may have been on our wait list.
Families coming from outside CMS must first show proof of enrollment in CMS Schools. See the CMS Student Placement website. No student may audition without proof of enrollment, even if they are moving here from out of town. We must have the enrollment receipt or CMS number.
