Get on stage!

Actors ages 12-19 can audition for our shows and act on our stage. We encourage children and youth with or without experience to audition. Our auditions are open to actors of all races, cultures, sizes, and abilities. Try it, it’s fun!

Our auditions are held in groups and are friendly toward novice actors, but we are looking for performers with a variety of experience levels. No preparation is necessary for the audition.

Directors will lead audition groups through a variety of activities during the 1/2 hour audition.

Most of our productions have acting, singing and dancing, and those are a part of the auditions.

What we are looking for in an audition:

  • Focus
  • Energy
  • Expressiveness
  • Ability to work well with others
  • Professionalism
  • Ability to take direction
  • Willingness to try new things
  • Respect for fellow auditioners and staff
  • Punctuality (auditioners should arrive no later than 15 minutes prior to their audition time)
  • Ability to attend rehearsals, technical rehearsals and performances

Please Be Aware

We see between 80 and 120 actors for each show we audition for and are able to cast only between 20-25 actors. Many times, someone who has an outstanding audition may not get cast simply because there is not a role that suits that actor, whether it is age, or height or some other factor that is harder to define.

We recognize that disappointment is a part of this process. We are disappointed that we can’t choose everyone as well! We try as hard as we can to make the audition process itself as fun as possible, so that even if you are not cast, you will have a good time auditioning. And we always encourage actors who are not cast in one show to come back again. Your time will come!
