Audition FAQ's

How do I know what the play is about?

You can usually find scripts at your local library. You may also go to to check your local library's catalog.

I’m a little older than the casting requirement, can I still audition?

Yes, you can still audition. Ages are flexible, at the director’s discretion. A play is a group undertaking and the director will decide the best complement of actors for the play.

What are auditions like?

Auditions are open, with no appointment necessary. But, it is best to arrive as close to the stated start time, as the director will welcome you and talk about the play and the cast needed. You will usually read excerpts of the director’s choosing. Monologues not generally necessary, unless stated in the audition notice. You will generally get to read several excerpts, possibly of different characters, not necessarily the character you’re auditioning for.

I really want to audition, but I’m unavailable both times, what can I do?
Let us know. On rare occasions, the director may set up a pre-arranged time for you to audition.

Do I have to be a member to audition?

No, auditions are open for all.

Do I have to become a member if I am cast in the play?

No, but chances are that someone will speak to you about the advantages of membership.

When are the rehearsals?
Rehearsals are typically three days a week, usually two evenings and one weekend day, Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon or evening. The director will poll the cast for those times when everyone is available. (There may be extra rehearsals during production week.)
