AUDITIONS


If you would like to be notified on any upcoming auditions, please subscribe to our auditions email list.

Please “buy a ticket” (it’s free) for an audition to help directors and stage managers ensure there are enough copies of scripts, time, audition forms, etc. at the audition sessions. It also helps us if you provide contact information here so we can reach you with audition results and future notices.

An auditioning workshop will be held in September.
