A very special “thank you” to all who auditioned for The Library. This was an incredibly difficult choice to make. There were far too many talented candidates and too few roles. And in the end, an unorthodox decision was made. The role of Caitlin will be played by two actresses, who will rotate in performances. If you were not cast in this show, PLEASE audition for the musical Miracle on 34th Street, auditions are October 10 and 11, 2016, or if musicals aren’t your cup of tea, there are auditions coming up for Love/Sick on December 5 and 6, 2016. Both of these shows have sizeable casts, with lots of roles available for different age groups. If you are under 18 years old, we also have A Charlie Brown Christmas, auditioning October 17 and 18, 2016 and The Snow Queen, which auditions on December 5 and 6, 2016.
Our first meeting will be on Monday, August 22, at 7:30pm in the CTC Library/Conference Room.
Thank you to everyone.

"Where do I park?" You can park in the lot right across from the Theatre Centre. It is free to park there IF you will pick up a parking pass inside and place it in your car before you audition.
"There are two days of auditions, do I come to both?" The short answer is: "no." You can come to either Monday or Tuesday, whichever works best for you. Please don't come to both audition days, it doesn't help your chances of getting a role; however, the Callbacks for the show will usually be held on Thursday following the audition, so if you have a conflict that day, please let us know at the audition.
"Is it okay to arrive at 7:30 pm for the audition?" Sort of. Yes, if you have to hurry from school or work to get here by 7:30pm; that is fine. Just be aware that there is an audition form that must be filled out before you can audition, so if you can arrive 15-30 minutes early, it would be less stressful for you and more helpful for us if you can have that done by 7:30pm.
"Do I need to prepare a monologue or a song?" No, when we hold auditions for a musical, we will teach you a short part of a song and a short movement piece or dance combination. For plays and musicals, if there is a scene we want you to read, we will provide that too. The only preparation necessary is that you have a list of ANY conflicts you might have with rehearsal. This is vital! We MUST know any days you will miss in ADVANCE of casting. Any conflicts not shared with the production team at that time will mean that the actor will forfeit their role.
"What is the rehearsal schedule?" Rehearsals for most productions begin soon after auditions and our normal rehearsal schedule is usually Sunday through Thursday from 7:30 - 10:30 pm – For SPAMALOT, the schedule might be Sunday through Friday from 7:30 - 10:30 pm. The final rehearsal schedule, however, will be based on the conflicts given by the actors at the time of the audition, this is why that information is so critical.
