General Audition Information
Auditions are “open auditions,” meaning that all are welcome to try out for any of our productions and all are welcome to come and watch any of our auditions.
Auditions are typically “cold reads,” meaning those auditioning will go onstage and read excerpts from the script of the show they are auditioning for. In most cases scenes require multiple people reading, so it is rare that anyone is onstage alone during the audition process. Auditions are held in a friendly atmosphere and directors explain all information needed before the readings begin.
Scripts for each production may be checked out during box office hours (noon – 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday) up to two weeks before the audition date. There is a $5 deposit fee that will be refunded if the script is returned by the night of auditions. If you decide not to audition bring the script back before the audition date please. Audition applications and rehearsal schedules will also be available to pick up at the box office. We ask that you take the time to go over the rehearsal schedule and mark any and all conflicts on your application.
If you have any questions concerning auditions you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and directors will be available to answer any and all questions at the auditions.

In the summer of 1835 a showboat called The Gospel Queen appeared in the little river town of Danner’s Cove, bringing a message of repentance and salvation. People waited expectantly for many years afterward, but the boat never returned. Now, 70 years later, Grandpa Holt sits on the wharf all day, every day, waiting to once again experience the power of the living God. . . the power of another RIVERBOAT REVIVAL.
