AUDITION REQUIREMENTS

Auditions and rehearsals will be held at
Arts Center of St. Charles
2422 West Main St.   #2B
St. Charles, IL  60175


Performance location depends on many factors including number of cast members, early ticket sales, and availability of venues.


Everyone will be cast, so don't worry if you do not have time to prepare.  Just sing "Happy Birthday."  If you do not have a monologue prepared, you will be asked to read from the script.  


If you are interested in a LEAD role, please prepare a monologue and a musical theatre song.

We are willing to work around conflicts ONLY if the dates are provided at time of auditions.


-Email [email protected] to make an appointment.  Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments will be taken first.  


-If you are unable to attend auditions, please email us and we will try to make other arrangements.


-Video auditions are accepted but must be emailed to [email protected] before the end of the audition time block.  


-IF you are interested in a LEAD ROLE, memorize a 30-second to one-minute monologue that demonstrates acting skills.  Do not use a monologue from the show, but choose one similar in feeling to the character you are most interested in playing. Google "monologues" for examples.


-IF you are interested in a SOLO, memorize 30 seconds to one minute of a song.  Do not use a song from the show, but one from a similar show.  Bring backing tracks (instrumental/karaoke) on a CD, a phone, or any other recording device.  Check out www.karaoke-version.com to download tracks.  ACT the song!  Singing a cappella is not recommended.


-There are always non-singing roles available.


-There will NOT be an accompanist unless otherwise specified.

-Bring a photo.  8" x 10" preferred. Photos will not be returned.


-Wear clothes you can dance in.  No short skirts, boots, sandals, clogs, etc.


-Bring dance shoes (ballet or jazz). Some musicals require a short dance audition that will be taught in small groups.


-If experienced, bring an actor's resume.  Google "actor's resume format" for examples.


-Some actors may be asked to read from the script.
