Frequently Asked Questions

+ When will audition information be available for the 2022-23 season?
General auditions for adult and youth actors for the 2022-23 season will be held in the early spring of 2022. More information on specific audition dates and time will be announced in early 2022. 

+ Are actors paid?
Adult actors are compensated at a weekly rate. Student actors gain valuable stage experience rehearsing and performing alongside working professionals.

+ What material do I need to prepare?
See above for specific information on what to include in your video audition.

+ Do I need a headshot (photograph) and a resume?
Yes, you will be asked to upload a headshot and resume as part of the audition application.

+ What should I wear?
An audition is much like a job interview. Please look professional.

+ What is a callback?
A callback is another more specific audition during the selection process. You will usually be asked to read additional scenes from the show, prepare music from the score, or learn a dance combination. Callbacks are an opportunity for the director(s) to see and hear different combinations of performers.

+ What if I am not called back?
Not being called back doesn’t always mean that you aren’t being cast in a show. Callbacks aren't always necessary.

+ What if I can’t make all rehearsals?
The availability of an actor can be the final deciding factor in casting. Rehearsal and performances dates are listed with audition information. We may be able to work around minor availability conflicts - but please be honest about your availability.

+ How will I know if I am cast in the show?
If you are cast in a show you will receive a phone call or email from Stage Management or director(s). Callbacks may be scheduled on an as needed basis throughout the season, sometimes several months after the initial audition. If your availability changes for a production or you are being considered for a role at another company, please email Stage Management.
