Auditions are often by APPOINTMENT ONLY, but sometimes they are held as OPEN CALLS. Please take special note of each individual announcement and follow the instructions therein. Appointments (and all communications regarding auditions) are handled through

Interested actors should ALWAYS bring a current resume and headshot, even if they have submitted it online. It is also wise to bring your calendar, so that you can clearly and accurately relay to the production team any possible conflicts with the production calendar. 

If there are age restrictions, they will be listed on the notice.

The following is a general guideline for auditions, but, again, you should consult the audition announcement for any special instructions. 


Interested actors should prepare 16 bars from a musical and bring sheet music in the appropriate key, with all the requisite cuts, etc. clearly marked, in a binder, if possible.

No acappella singing, no original songs, and often it is best to find something in the vein of the particular show for which you are auditioning. 

For the dance call of a musical, you should come warmed up, with the appropriate dance attire and shoes. No bare feet or flip-flops, no baggy clothing.

FOR plaYs:

Interested actors generally will be asked to prepare a brief comedic or dramatic monologue. (NO original works please.)
