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 held
on 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.
