Acting

Want to be an actor? We can make that happen for you, no experience necessary! Read on for details on the audition process.

There’s no need to prepare a piece to bring to your audition! Audition sides will be provided by the directors, and you’ll have time to practice before entering the audition room. When you arrive at the audition room, you will fill out a provided audition form.

You only need to attend one night of auditions, and you do not need to stay for the entire 4 hours. Just show up at any point between the listed hours–the audition process will take  about 30 minutes total.

Audition for as many shows as you’d like — and of course, have fun with it!

Callback lists are sent out via email shortly after auditions are finished, and callbacks take place the day after auditions.
