NOTE: Technology Drive no longer is connected to Boal Avenue as indicated on the map. To get to the building, turn right onto Discovery Drive (the next right after West Drive, if you are coming from town). The next left is Technology Drive - turn left. Turn right just before the light colored building ahead and to the right, and then bear left into the parking area at that side of the building. We are in the right-most office closest to the highway when looking at the building (you'll see a glass door and the green benches out front). We'll have a sign up by the door.

BASIC AUDITION INFORMATION
 

Worried about auditioning? — Don't be!  The process is relatively painless, and even fun!  Here's what you do . . .

Dress Comfortably
You will be asked to wear a self-adhesive number badge, which should not be applied to leather, suede, velvet, corduroy, vinyl, plastic, or silk.  If you are auditioning for musicals, make sure you wear appropriate shoes for the dance audition.

For the Plays
The play auditions are quick and easy and there's no need to memorize anything.  The directors will give out cold readings from the different scripts and have you read them.  Most often the auditions include a scene between two or three people; sometimes you'll be asked to read a monologue.  Don't worry if you aren't asked to read a specific part.  The directors use all of the readings, even from the other plays, to determine who they would like to cast.

For the Musicals
For the first part of the musical audition, prepare a 45 to 60 second song selection.  You can bring sheet music or a music-only recording on cassette or CD.  A pianist and tape/CD player will be provided.  If you don't have any music available, singing a capella works just fine.  Don't worry about picking that perfect song; many people just sing "Happy Birthday."  The key is for the Music Director to hear your voice and your range.

Following that, cold readings will be done from the script, usually with some degree of character interaction, sometimes in monologue form.

And finally, the choreographer will put you through a simple set of dance steps.

Above all, relax and have fun!
