Auditions for the 2020/2021 Season

2020-2021 Audition Update:

*As of April 30, 2020

As HYS plans for the 2020-2021 season and auditions, we are taking the COVID-19 situation carefully into consideration to determine our next steps. To ensure accessibility for all students interested in auditioning next season, we are projecting to post audition information when the DOE schools return to session. Due to the fluidity of this pandemic, HYS reserves the right to adapt our policy as the situation continues to develop. Please check back on June 15th for updates as we continue to comply with the Governor’s stay at home order.  Thank you for your patience and we look forward to announcing our plans for the 2020-2021 season.
