Tips for Auditioning at the Playhouse:

For straight plays & comedies: please bring a prepared monologue.
For a musicals: please prepare a monologue, a song with your sheet music,
and be ready to do some improv movement.

Dress comfortably – but not sloppy.

Be prepared to share a little bit about yourself with the Director:
Previous theater experiences, classes you have taken, interesting skills
(i.e. Do you juggle? Tumble? Write poetry? Have a 3rd eye? Do you like to build? Paint?)

Please be sure you have checked your calendar for conflicts
to be sure you can be at every rehearsal and performance.
If you have any conflicts that will prohibit you from being at rehearsals,
put them in writing to pass on to the Director.
It is important that if you are cast in a show you can fulfill the commitment!

But most importantly:

Remember this is about FUN and CREATIVITY!
This is a time to put your best foot forward and really strut your stuff!

Auditioning can be scary and we understand –
we have all been in your shoes more than once.

We promise to make it as easy as possible –
and as fun as it can be for you and/or your child.

We welcome everyone at the APA –
if this is your 60th show or your 1st we would love to meet you!
