Ready for the spotlight? We hold open auditions and everyone is invited to try out (we are a community theatre, after all!). Experience is not required.
We try to keep auditions as easy and stress-free as possible. When you arrive, we will get your general information and take a photo of you. Head shots and monologues are not required. For plays, you will be asked to read from portions of the script (“sides”), usually with others who are auditioning. For musicals, you are asked to bring a prepared song and sheet music in the correct key. An accompanist will be provided. CD accompaniment and a capella auditions are also permitted. It is a good idea to come dressed in clothes in which you can move comfortably, in case choreography is included in the audition.
Unless otherwise noted, all auditions are held at the Arts Council Theatre; come to the lobby for check-in. For further information, e-mail us or call (336) 748-0857 x209.
