Please Note:

Theatre is subjective. The most important part is the audition itself. However, many factors go into casting a production, such as height, weight, look, personality, acting ability, conflicts, past experience, presence, work ethic, doubles, doubles conflicts, age, etc. If we were not able to use you in a past production, please continue to audition. Our production team strives to provide a safe environment in which to promote artistic expression. Break a leg!

Audition Tips

  • Auditors want you to be successful; they are your biggest advocate.
  • Auditioning is a skill that you must perfect.
  • We advise auditioners to read the play in which they are auditioning to see where they best see themselves, as well as being open to trying for other roles they may not see themselves in.
  • Practice auditioning. Practice anywhere and everywhere.
  • Pick audition pieces that show you off. Don’t pick pieces that you don’t feel 100% comfortable performing 100% of the time.
  • Pick audition pieces similar to the production you are auditioning for.
  • Wear clothing that is applicable to the character in which you would like to be cast as. If the character wears a dress, wear a dress. If the character is a tomboy, wear pants. (Do not wear a costume!)
  • Bring a headshot. This is helpful for the auditors to remember who you are. They will see over 300 people for a given production.
