Audition

for The

Little

Theatre

READY FOR THE SPOTLIGHT?

Audition for one or more of our shows this season!

We try to keep auditions as easy and stress-free as possible. No appointment is required, and everyone is welcome!  We'll have you fill out an audition form and conflict sheet when you arrive, so please bring your calendar.  We'll also take your photo.  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. 
Details about upcoming auditions are below.

 

The Little Theatre believes in non-traditional casting, and encourages all who are interested to audition.
