Auditions at the Plaza

 

Anyone who has an interest in any aspect of theater is encouraged to attend auditions at the Plaza.  We are always looking for new faces, and whether you are a seasoned actor or community theatre has always been on your bucket-list, we would love to meet you and have you join the Plaza family.  We also encourage anyone interested in technical theatre (lights, sounds, stage management, costuming, etc.) to come to auditions.

 

 

What should I expect when I'm auditioning for a play?  Expect the unexpected. Currently you do not need to prepare a monologue. We will probably ask you to read from the script. Let the director know if you are interested in a specific role. Reading from the script gives us an idea of who you are as a person and if we would be able to cast in you in a specific role. We may have you read a variety of roles to get a better understanding of your capabilities as an actor.

 

What should I expect when I'm auditioning for a musical?  When auditioning for a musical expect the same scenario as an audition for a play, but you will also need to have a musical selection prepared.  Accompaniment is not normally provided at auditions, so please bring an instrumental-only accompaniment CD unless you plan to sing without accompaniment.

 

What should I sing?  Something that shows you off.  We prefer show tunes, and your selection doesn?t have to be from the show you are auditioning for.  Pick something you like to sing, something you feel comfortable singing and --most important--something you can sing. If you find yourself having trouble reaching a note or two in a piece, you probably want to think about having it transposed or finding another selection.

 

 

UPCOMING AUDITIONS

 

 

2017 Character Breakfast

Auditions for the 2017 Character Breakfast will be held at 7:00pm at the Plaza Theatre on Tuesday, June 6, 2017.  Interested individuals should come to auditions prepared to meet the director and determine if there is a complementing character.  Comfortable clothes should be worn to auditions because individuals may be asked to perform some simple movements and dance steps.  In addition to being available the entire morning of July 9th, all characters need to be available the evening before the event for a dress rehearsal.
