Auditions for all productions listed are open to the public; no one is precast. Where race, ethnicity, gender, age or other personal differentiations are not demanded by the needs of the script, The Playhouse casts its plays without regard to these attributes.
Those auditioning are encouraged to come to the theatre at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled audition time to fill in an information sheet. This sheet provides the director(s) with contact information, past experience, special skills and conflicts during the rehearsal process. Auditionees should come with their calendars so they can provide complete information.
The Playhouse does not typically make audition appointments; auditionees are taken in the order that they turn in their information sheets.
For musicals, auditionees will need to sing a prepared song. Most directors prefer that it not be from the show for which you are auditioning. The Playhouse provides an accompanist. Auditionees may be requested to work some scales or intervals with the music director to determine the voice range. In groups of 5-10, auditionees will be taught a dance or movement routine. After the dance audition, auditionees will most likely be dismissed. On some occasions, those auditioning will be asked to read a selection from the script. The Playhouse does not ask for prepared monologues.
For non-musicals, those auditioning will be asked to read a selection from the script. The Playhouse does not ask for prepared monologues.
