Audition process

1.   Fill out an audition form and get your picture taken.

2.   We’ll do a quick warm-up with some theatre games. These are fun tension breakers but also an important part of the audition process. We're looking to see how well you listen and follow directions, among other things.

3.   The rest of auditions will be “lukewarm” readings from the sides. Pick something and prepare (with partners if appropriate). We’ll call people in the order that they let us know they’re ready.

4.   You can leave after any time after you've read, or stick around and read again.  We'd like everyone to read once before we read anyone twice. If you have to leave early, please let us know before you go.

You’re auditioning for all three plays, regardless of what you read. If you’re only interested in one play (or a particular part in one play), indicate that on your audition form.

Note: The Commedia Rep will be two plays in rep, improvised in commedia dell'arte style, using traditional characters and masks with scenarios drawn from Shakespeare. Othello has two parts pre-cast (Q as Othello, Shawn Forsythe as Iago). Othello is also seeking a number of singing roles.

Make sure you understand who you are, what you’re saying and why you’re saying it. If you’re not sure, ask (no shame). We’ll immediately have you read again with an adjustment but the first time through is all you. Make a strong choice. Have fun.

Out of town auditions
