Auditions for the upcoming show are held on Saturday mornings, usually the final weekend of the preceding show. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to audition, and lack of experience in the theatre arts will not disqualify anyone. The auditions are cold readings from the script. Auditions for musicals will also include a prepared song of your choice.
If for some reason you cannot attend a scheduled audition, another time may be scheduled with the director at his discretion. It is MOST important that anyone who auditions makes certain that they will be available for all rehearsals as well as each performance. Show performance dates are listed below each audition date.
Rehearsals are every week night from approximately 6pm to 9pm. Though smaller roles may not need to attend every rehearsal, they will need to be available for any rehearsal date.
Parts are selected by the director alone, and actors who have been cast will be contacted by the director.
