Auditions

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 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.

 

If you are unable to make it to a scheduled night but still wish to audition, please contact us at hello@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.
