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 $6 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 and directors will be available to answer any and all questions at the auditions.

Show Synopsis

D.L. Moody had no formal education or religious training. He was mocked for his inability to speak proper English. His only work experience was as a shoe salesman. Yet he dared to accept the challenge to see what God could do through one man totally committed to Him. Through that challenge, this unlikely hero became the most famous American preacher of his time, and the Moody Bible Institute was born.

Show Synopsis

Saul of Tarsus, persecutor of Christ-followers, was struck by a blinding light on the road to Damascus. This encounter with the Son of God changed his life forever. He became a brave hero of the faith fighting to bring the gospel to the Gentiles as well as the Jews. He took three missionary journeys, planting churches along the way. The letters he wrote to those churches and to individuals like Timothy still guide believers today. During his service to the Lord, he was mocked, beaten, stoned, jailed, shipwrecked, and ultimately beheaded. He never wavered in his determination to run the race, for he was “not ashamed of the gospel of Christ.”
