WHAT WILL AUDITIONS BE LIKE?
You will sign in and fill out an audition form to tell us about yourself. Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before — experience isn’t required. A script will be given to you at auditions. You will be asked to read from the script, sing and learn a few dance steps, along with others who are auditioning.  You do not need to attend both audition nights. Children ages 8-15 will audition first at 6 p.m., and auditions for actors age 16 and above will begin at approximately 7 p.m.

WHAT ROLES ARE AVAILABLE?
There are many roles available for men, women and children of various ages. Children must be at least age 8 to audition.

WHEN ARE REHEARSALS?
Beginning just a few days after auditions, rehearsals will be scheduled weeknights, with some weekend involvement closer to the performance dates, which are June 16, 17, 18, 19(matinee), 22, 23, 24, 25 and 26(matinee).

WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
ACT is a non-profit, volunteer organization providing quality theatre and entertainment for our community. If you’re not interested in being on stage, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in other ways, such as backstage crew, building and painting sets, costumes, props, lights, sound, usher or in the box office.
