What Auditions Look Like

We welcome actors of all experience levels and backgrounds to participate in our productions. Auditions will typically consist of reading from sides and some improvisational activities. Musical auditions will consist of singing pieces from the show, reading sides, and possibly a dance portion. Auditions will take place on stage in front of others auditioning. You do not need to bring a head shot or resume. No main stage show is ever precast, and all casting decisions are at the discretion of the director. Actors do not need to be the same age as the characters listed in order to audition. Please enter the theatre from teh back lot door and head to the lobby where an attendant will meet you to give out important information.

 Things to Bring with You

  • Pencil

  • Conflicting Dates for Rehearsals

  • Positive Attitude

  • Optional for Musicals - Prepared solo with accompaniment.

 

If you are unable to make it to a scheduled night but still wish to audition, please contact us at marketing@starlighters.org and we will put you in contact with the director to discuss an alternative time. Please plan to arrive at auditions at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time in order to fill out an audition sheet.

On a park bench, bathed in the glow of the setting sun, two strangers find that they aren’t so strange after all as they talk about time lost and dream about the time that remains.  "The Park Bench" is a humorous reminder of how connections, both old and new, can redirect our paths in the most surprising ways. It reminds us that the simple act of sitting down, sharing stories, and opening our hearts, can lead to profound changes in individual destinies.
