Audition Information

  • What To Prepare:
    • You may prepare/perform a one-minute monologue, but this is not required. The audition will mainly consist of cold readings from the script. Auditions are seen in order of arrival and may be paired up for certain scenes. Please be prepared to stay for either the first or second half of the audition time so that you can try out different roles and role combinations.
  • Resume/Head Shot:
    • Bring if you wish, but not required.
  • Rehearsals:
    • Will be held at the Super Summer Theatre Studios (see address above). There will be 2-4 weekly rehearsals from 6-9 pm and some Saturdays from 1-5 pm. Other rehearsals may be scheduled as needed. Until 11/11 most rehearsals will focus on particular scenes and only actors in them will need to be there. After 11/11 full run throughs will be run 5-6 times per week. The Director is willing to adjust rehearsal schedules when possible, so don’t let some anticipated scheduling conflicts discourage you from auditioning.
