General Auditions

August 21-25, 2016; 6:00-9pm
Callbacks August 27-29


We will again be holding General Auditions for the entire 2017-2018 Season.  See the column to the right for some quick links on cast lists and audition tips.  Below are directions on how to sign up for a specific time slot and what requirements are for your audition.

Register
Please go here to register for a specific time slot. This will be your time. Drop-ins will be welcome, but only when there is space/time; the easiest way to secure your spot is to register beforehand. Registration will close on Saturday, August 19th.  If you need to change or cancel your time please let us know as soon as possible. Minors (16 and under) must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.   

Audition Length
Audition time slots are 10 minutes – this will give you enough time to perform your monologues and/or musical piece as well as any changes the directors may want to see.


Checking In
Please plan to arrive early to give yourself adequate preparation time. We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes early so you can check in and prepare for your audition.  The directors may also call you early if you are ready and they are ahead of schedule. Please enter the Evergreen Playhouse at the side door (signs will be posted).

You can also take that time to fill out the necessary paperwork and glance over the schedules and time commitments outlined for each show.

Memorized Monologues
Please come with two (2) contrasting monologues memorized.  If you are auditioning for a musical, please come with at least 16 bars of music and bring your own accompaniment. (A piano will be provided, but not a pianist.  A CD player/speakers will be provided if you’d like to play your music from a CD or MP3 player or YouTube) If you do not have a memorized monologue, cold reading monologues will be made available.

What to Bring
Please bring a current theater resume with a headshot/photo. If you do not have a photo, one will be taken before your auditions.  Audition forms filled out will expedite the process.

What Happens After Generals?
The following Sunday-Tuesday (August 27-29), we will be holding Callbacks for specific shows. If a director would like to see you read for a part(s), you will be contacted to return. If you do not get a callback, this does not mean that you will not be offered a role!  Callback schedule is outlined to the right.

If a director (or directors!) would like to offer you a part in their show, you will be contacted by September 1st. If you decide to accept the role, a letter of intent/contract will be sent to you outlining your role and your commitment. You will need to return this signed to hold your role.
