Auditioning with Us

Everyone is always encouraged to audition.
No Experience is necessary!

"I can't act!", you say. But a theatre has many other slots to fill before a production is ready for an audience. Some are: build sets; help direct car parking; write publicity; box office; vacuum carpets; design programs; ushers; work on the Newsletter; props; costumes; assistant directors; and on and on and on. So Come!

So what happens when you come?
You'll be asked to read a scene or multiple scenes from the play, either alone or with other actors. If the play is a musical, you may be asked to demonstrate your singing and/or dancing ability. And, naturally, it is wise to dress comfortably for both auditions and rehearsals.

Very Important - Bring a list of dates (conflicts) when you will not be available to rehearse.

If you are not cast on your first attempt, don't be discouraged. There are lots of reasons directors cast a show the way they do and you may have an opportunity in another show.

There are also plenty of equally important and satisfying backstage roles that need filling before a show hits the stage.

Newbie director Carol has one day to find the leads for a community theater production of Romeo and Juliet. But what seems like a simple task proves impossible when the pool of auditioners includes extreme method actors, some who don't know how to channel their rage, and one woman who may think she's a cat. This brings you to the last place you'd want to be...behind the doors of a casting session.
