General Audition Information

Auditions are typically held 9-10 weeks before a show is to be performed. As specific show information becomes available it will be listed below.

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.

A few tips: 

  • Don’t get hung up on production values. I just need to see your face and hear your voice.
  • Take your time. You will read much faster than you think.
  • Be as expressive as possible. I can always pull you back.
  • And have fun!
