General Audition Information

Auditionees are usually asked to read from the script of the show being auditioned. It is highly encouraged that auditionees have read the script in advance. On occasion, specific readings may be selected by the director for auditions.

For musical auditions, auditionee should prepare a short memorized solo (approx. 2 minutes, with accompaniment) and should bring sheet music to auditions. Accompanists are provided for auditions. Solos do not need to be from the production being auditioned for. Depending on the production, auditionees may be asked to learn a short dance combination, to be performed in the audition in a small group setting, or may be asked to partipate in other movement activities.

Upcoming audition dates are listed below. Additional information about each production may be read on the page pertaining to each show under our performances tab or follow the link provided below.

Dirty Blonde

By Claudia Shear

Performances June 1 - June 16

Auditions: April 9 & 10 7-9 pm in the lower level of OTP


From the Director:

"I made myself platinum, but I was born a dirty blonde." Mae West 

This is a small musical play about the life of Mae West. 

I will be casting one woman and three or four men.

There are fourteen characters, twelve of them played by men and two, Jo and Mae, by a woman. 

Yes, Musical!!! I will cast actors who can sing. I am not looking for great voices rather actors who can stay on tune and work a song, sell a song, make a funny song funny. 

I very much hope to find someone to play the piano for the show,  as an actor, not as a paid accompanist. Man or woman...if you are interested in this role, please contact me before auditions. The actor playing piano may also be cast in one or more small roles. 

Those interested in the role of Jo/Mae...look up Mae West and be prepared to give us a little walk and talk. You need not come in costume. We will have a feather boa for you should you want a prop.

There will be no nudity or smoking. There will be an occasional "bad" word. There will be laughter.

Thank-you for your interest!
