New to auditioning?
By auditioning for the entire season, you are indicating interest in being considered for casting opportunities throughout the entire upcoming year. The director of each show will be calling back individuals from this pool of talent for show specific audition opportunities based on your type and experience. For this reason, it is imperative that you bring a photo of yourself and a performance resume or list of previous performances and roles.
You will fill out a contact form at your audition time. Email is our primary way of contacting actors for call backs, so please be sure you provide an email that you check regularly.
Our actors are typically paid a stipend to offset the costs of attending rehearsals. We are a semi-professional company, and we operate in a professional atmosphere. Our actors are treated with respect and we expect actors to return that respect by showing up on time to all rehearsals and performances, and collaborating in a positive manner. Your audition is the first opportunity to show your respect for the theater process and thus your ability to work well with us; so arrive early, be prepared, and always say “Thank you!”
