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 in good condition by the night of auditions. If you decide not to audition, please return the script before the audition date. 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.
