Carrollwood Players Theatre conducts open auditions for all main stage and Black Box productions and anyone is welcome. We are a community theatre and seek talent from all backgrounds and experience levels. Most auditions are held over two consecutive nights and consist of cold readings from the script. Some auditions require a prepared monologue. Musical auditions also require an audition song, and may include a dance/movement audition. Actors are asked to come to auditions with a complete list of potential date conflicts. Please also bring a resume or simple list of your prior theatre experience. If you have one, bring a head shot (professional head shots are NOT required.) We can take a photo of you at the audition. See you at auditions!
WHAT TO BRING TO THE AUDITION:
1. A photo or headshot if you have one (NOT REQUIRED)
2. A resume or list of your theatre experience.
3. A complete list of potential conflicts (THIS IS A MUST.)
1. Excessive conflicts will make it difficult to cast you.
2. New conflicts after being cast are problematic and must be limited to legitimate emergencies.
3. Regular rehearsals begin promptly at 7:30 pm and usually run approximately 2 hours but can extend up to 3 hours closer to opening.
4. Friday and Saturday night performances are at 8 pm with a call time of 7 pm.
5. Sunday performances are at 3 pm with a call time of 2 pm.
Regular rehearsals are T.B.A.
1. Each cast member is required to participate for a minimum of 2 hours in EITHER the set build on the selected Sunday from 10 am until 4 pm pm *OR* the set dressing/painting day on the selected Saturday from 10 am until 6 pm.
2. All cast members are required to assist with closing night prop/costume/set dressing break-down immediately after the closing night performance on last Saturday. This usually takes about an hour.
3. Cast members are expected to actively participate in promoting the show via social media sharing and posting, distributing flyers, inviting friends and family, etc.
This is an unpaid production. Cast members who are dues paying members of Carrollwood Players Theatre receive one complimentary ticket to the production. All cast members who log their hours are also eligible for CWP’s monthly volunteer prize drawings, which include free show tickets and gift card prizes.
Rehearsals will start immediately after casting. No performers paid.
