Audition for The Little Theatre
READY FOR THE SPOTLIGHT?
Audition for one or more of our shows this season!
We keep auditions as easy and stress-free as possible. No appointments, and everyone is welcome! As a community theatre we encourage non-traditional casting, and encourages all who are interested to audition.
At the audition you will fill out an audition form and conflict sheet when you arrive, so please bring your calendar. Your photo will be take for reference.
For plays, you'll be asked to do cold readings ("sides"); for musicals, you'll sing a song you've prepared and possibly learn a short choreography routine.
At The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem everyone is welcome to audition and no role is cast before auditions take place.

This vibrant adaptation by Winston-Salem native and New York Times best-selling novelist, Charlie Lovett, played to sold-out houses last season! Imprisoned in the dark and miserly life he has chosen, Ebenezer Scrooge faces a fateful night of ghosts, memories, visions, and fears. Will the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come help him find the way to a kinder heart and a brighter future? The Little Theatre is pleased to bring this hopeful and merry adaptation of everyone’s favorite Christmas classic to the stage this holiday season.
All characters can be portrayed by any ethnicity.
All characters, with few exceptions, will also play multiple roles and be a part of the Ensemble. All characters are British and will need to have either a Standard British or Cockney accent.
