Auditions

 March 31 & April 1 at 7:00pm

The epic struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in the musical phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde. Based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and featuring a thrilling score of pop rock hits from multi-Grammy- and Tony-nominated Frank Wildhorn and double-Oscar- and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde has mesmerized audiences the world over.

An evocative tale of two men – one, a doctor, passionate and romantic; the other, a terrifying madman – and two women – one, beautiful and trusting; the other, beautiful and trusting only herself– both women in love with the same man and both unaware of his dark secret. A devoted man of science, Dr. Henry Jekyll is driven to find a chemical breakthrough that can solve some of mankind's most challenging medical dilemmas. Rebuffed by the powers that be, he decides to make himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the man that the world would come to know as Mr. Hyde.

About our audtion process

Auditions begin at 7:00pm at the theatre, doors open at least 30 minutes prior.

Minimum age for our shows is usually 7 years old.  Rehearsals can be demanding, and require a certain level of maturity and self-discipline. Children cast will be expected to behave, be respectful  and follow the directions of the Production team.

Auditions are open to everyone. We ask that you arrive early to fill out, or update, an information card that will provide us with basic information about you and any theater experience you may have. 

We are always looking to expand our theater family, so experience is not required.  Also, if you are interested in working backstage on a show, you are welcome to come to auditions and give the director your information.

What to expect when you audition:

Expect to perform in front of everyone else who is auditioning.

If you are auditioning for a play you will be asked to read from a script, interacting with others who are auditioning.   You will be given the chance to look over any scene you are being asked read.

If you are auditioning for a musical, be prepared to sing about 30 seconds with our accompanist or a Capella. 

 

Wear comfortable clothing and shoes. The choreographer usually teaches a short group dance routine, but no special talent is required. 

 

You may also be asked to do a scene reading if auditioning for a lead role. 

 

If callbacks are needed, the director will let you know at the audition.
