After skipping over Chicago for last year's audition process, "So You Think You Can Dance" will conduct open-call auditions Feb. 27 and March 1.
On Thursday, Feb. 27, producers from the show will audition candidates at the Oriental Theatre. Saturday's call-backs will be in front of judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, guest judge Jenna Elfman and possibly host Cat Deeley.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. the theatre. Some rules via Fox: Dancers either must be U.S. citizens, legal permanent residents of the U.S. or possess current legal Employment Authorization Cards enabling them to seek employment freely in the U.S. (i.e., without restrictions as to employer) by the date specified in the eligibility rules. Dancers must be no younger than 18 or older than 30 years of age on the first day they register for auditions. Any dancer who is a minor in his/her state of residence must also have a parent or legal guardian sign all required documents. Dancers must provide legal, valid proof of age when they register for auditions.
Check www.fox.com/dance for full eligibility rules and other details.
Again, auditions are over two days—Feb. 27 and March 1—so make necessary arrangements. The Oriental Theatre is located at 24 W. Randolph St.
