Audition Information

Check back soon for information about our upcoming auditions!

Audition Basics

Please read the following information:

We are excited to have you audition! 
We cast from open calls, and everyone starts with an equal opportunity.
We know your time is valuable, and we always strive to be efficient.
Our desire is for you to have a smooth and positive audition experience.

1. Preparation. A good audition requires research, knowledge, and preparation.  Know the audition requirements and plan to provide those casting the show with the items requested.  This can include correctly prepared sheet music, a memorized monolog, familiarity with sides, dance shoes, and other things. 


2. Be Punctual and Respectful. Please arrive on time. Be respectful to others around you. Keep your noise level to a minimum. Remember, they may be trying to mentally prepare or concentrate. 

3. Dress Appropriately. This is a “job” interview.  How you are perceived can make all the difference. Dress for success. It is NOT necessary to dress as a character, but dressing in the style or period of the show can help the casting team visualize you in the role.

4. Availability. We ask that you know your conflicts and can list them. This is a key factor in the casting process. Conflicts do not necessarily mean that you will not be cast but MUST be considered. 

5. Know the Show. Most times, there are videos, cast albums, scripts, etc. available for research.  Get familiar with the show and especially the character/s for which you are auditioning. Often, the director will ask you to read for other roles.  So, you should be familiar.

6. Provide a Concise Resume and Headshot. Your resume should include your contact information and experience as well as any specific talents you have that could be used in the show.  Your headshot should be recent. While a professional headshot is not necessary, you should provide a current photo.

7. Music Auditions. Whenever possible, a pianist will be provided for your audition.  We do not prefer recorded tracks so please check the audition notes to see if it is being offered. Sheet music should be properly marked and prepared for the pianist with the requested # of bars. Tracks should be simple to cue.

8. Pre-casting. We are always scouting for talent. When we find it, we may invite someone to audition.  This should not be perceived as Pre-casting. A role that is filled BEFORE auditions will be announced BEFORE the audition.  Consider an invite as a compliment and come ready to show us what you’ve got!

9. Call Backs. When you receive a call back, plan to be available for the entire session. The casting team is working a large puzzle. There are multiple things a director must consider when casting the right actor for the role. Trust the process.

10. The Next Step. At the call back, the casting team will let auditioners know when to expect casting decisions. They may also give details about show and rehearsal schedules and locations.

11. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING! Remember that each time you audition you learn something new; about the process, the show, the people involved, and even yourself! If you are not cast, don’t waste time being discouraged.  Gain from the experience and be ready for the next audition!  Practice makes better!
