It is the first round of the screening process and is held on the first day of school during the student's first-year. The audition screens one abilities to dance, sing and act. At the end of the auditions, the Kao Council personally interviews each student. Results are posted the following day. Once the student passes, he will be put into a team of five as a Musical Department candidate and adorn the Musical Department emblem on their uniform. Only 20 teams are formed and out of the 20 teams, 5 of the teams known as Star Teams will be under the guidance of the members of the Kao Council and are given a designated room to practice. One Kao Council member is in charge of each team. The other teams, known as Regular Teams, have to follow the practice schedule planned out for them held in various locations. For the next two screenings, all students will be judged based on how well their team works together.

Newcomers' Debut Performance Edit

Held in June, the second round is where half of the 20 teams will be eliminated. Team leaders draw lots to decide the order of performances. Taking turns to perform on the stage, all teams are required to perform 'Ayanagi Showtime', a song performed since the founding of the school, to honor the school's traditions. The prescribed steps and sequences have to be included in the performance. However, there are no rules stating on how the arrangement of the song should be like. Results are again posted on the following day, and only the top 10 teams move on to the next around.

The first is the Ayanagi Grand Performance Hall which can fit 1,500 people. Two Star teams perform there in the morning and afternoon respectively. The second is Ayanagi Small Hall that holds 200 seats. The remaining three Star Teams perform there. Finally, there is the Special Outdoor Stage where the five regular teams perform.

Teams have to apply to the Kao Council on where and which time slot they would like to perform. If more than one team applies for the same slot, it will be assigned accordingly through the outcome of a rock-paper-scissors match.

2nd Year Edit

In their 2nd year, all 25 Musical Department students will be placed in the same class, 2-MS. The first Curriculum for the students would be to assist with the Graduation Commemorative Performance, Shadow & Lights, which the previous Kao Council stars in. The most of the students will help out as staff. However, exception roles which the students can partake in. These roles are called the Second Year Training Roles. Each year, 5 students will be chosen from the 2nd years to perform on stage. Getting chosen will not just help gain advantages in department evaluations, but also may earn as spot in the next Kao Council. The casting will be decided by Ancient during an audition in summer. Before that, the students will need to undergo training by the Ancient as well.

2nd Year Training Roles AuditionEdit

The Second Year Training Roles are Lambert's and Alexis' Shadows, Hardy the Dancer, Percy the detective's assistant and Orlando the actor colleague. The two Shadow roles are the most particular importance as they are constantly on the stage, attached to the leading roles. Alexis' Shadow even has a musical solo hence it is also known as the top star of the training roles. The popular dancer, Hardy, involves a solo singing part and dancing with a high degree of difficulty. The detective's assistant Percy serves as the comedic relief and has a lot of lines. Lastly, Orlando, Lambert's actor colleague, who is jealous of Lambert's success and in his suffering, hatches a plan during the final acts. It is a role that demands delicate acting skills.

The Auditions will be based on a Team Challenge. The team which acquires the most roles will take all the training roles. It is the custom as the 2nd years are mostly amateurs with no stage experience, co-starring with teammates would make it easier for both the 2nd years and the graduating students who are leading in the performance. However, due to the high performance of the current 2nd years, the format has changed to a survival challenge instead. This means, whoever wins the role will play it.

These are the lineup for the auditioning of the roles:

Roles: Hardy Percy Orlando Lambert's Shadow Alexis' Shadow
Team Hiragi (team 柊) Inumine Seishiro Ugawa Akira Toraishi Izumi Sawatari Eigo Tatsumi Rui
Team Otori (team 鳳) Tengenji Kakeru Nayuki Toru Kuga Shu Hoshitani Yuta (previously)
