Audition at ACT









Upcoming Auditions for Mainstage & Readers Theatre Showcase

All roles at ACT are open to anyone in the community! No experience is necessary to audition. Here are a few tips to help you understand our audition process:

Auditions are held over two nights, and you may choose either night to audition. Auditions for Mainstage shows are heldon our Mainstage; auditions for Readers Theatre Showcase and 35below shows are held in 35below. No need to make an appointment – we’ll get you signed in when you arrive!

We list approximate age ranges of the characters – but it’s always a good idea to come by and check out the script so you can get a feel for the characters.

For musical auditions, you must prepare 16 bars of music and bring your sheet music to the audition in the key in which you will be singing. We will provide an accompanist. No one may sing along to a CD or other recording.

For non-musical auditions, all audition material is provided and will be available at the auditions.

Generally, you will be asked to read pages from the script in front of the director, the stage manager, and another reader.

Note: Asheville Community Theatre policy prohibits participation by anyone on any sex offender or sexual abuse registry to any activity sponsored by Asheville Community Theatre. The only exception is being a member of an audience of an event sponsored by ACT.
