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.
Audition applications and rehearsal schedules will 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.
Auditions for “IN THE DAYS OF THE MESSIAH” will be held Monday, February 27th , at 7:00 pm, according to Ron Boutwell, the show’s playwright and director.
Audition packets and scripts will be available on February 13th during regular Box Office hours (noon – 5:00 pm, Monday – Friday).
