Audition Information PDF Print E-mail

Auditions are usually held at the Lake Mirror Theatre Complex, unless otherwise posted. Experience is NOT necessary, all roles, are open unless otherwise announced. For dramas and comedies you do not need a monologue, just come to auditions prepared to read for the director. For musicals you need to sing 16 bars of any song. Bring your own sheet music with you if possible, please no CD’s. Wear loose clothing for dance and comfortable shoes. Each person will be given a chance to sing, read and/or dance as necessary, unless you have a request to the contrary.


You will be auditioning for all appropriate roles but you may specify a particular role that you are interested in, please indicate this clearly on your audition form. Whether the auditions are public or private is up to each individual Director.
You can pick up a perusal script at the Lakeland Community Theatre Box Office for a 48-hour loan, there is a $5 check out fee. You can find a complete list of shows, audition dates and times under the Audition Schedule tab.

 
You may be called to audition further; this is called a “Call Back”. It does not mean that you are cast or not cast, just that the Director would like to take another look at you. Only those called back will be telephoned.  Not being called back does NOT mean that you are not cast in the show. Likewise, being called back does not mean you will be cast.
Please note that by auditioning, you are obligating yourself to a considerable rehearsal and performance process. Major conflicts in your schedule may adversely effect your ability to be cast.  In the event an actor cannot attend regular auditions, they may audition at a pre-arranged time if the Director desires this. If after open auditions, the director believes that a particular role or roles cannot be satisfactorily cast; additional actors may be contacted for further auditions.

Being invited to audition, either directly or indirectly, does not guarantee you a role.

In most cases, a complete cast list will be posted 48 hours after the final callback audition. Only those who have been cast will be called.


Lakeland Community Theatre strives to cast new faces and talent whenever possible, and we highly encourage anyone who is interested to audition. However, casting decisions as we all know are quite subjective and we recognize that not everyone will be happy with the final outcomes.


Your Community Theatre encourages everyone to audition, no experience necessary!
Hope to see you at auditions soon!
