Upcoming Auditions at NC State University Theatre

“Harvey” Audition Orientation

Tuesday, January 23, 7:00pm, Thompson Hall

“Harvey” AND “Girl in Space” Auditions

Wednesday and Thursday, January 24-25, 7:00pm, Thompson Hall

What to Expect During an Audition

University Theatre student performances usually audition with short scene or monologue readings from the script. These “sides” are provided to the actors at the audition. The “sides” can be found on this audition page a couple of days before the audition so you can familiarize yourself with them. Perusal scripts and audition information are available in the Thompson Hall lobby. Musical auditions are held differently and will most likely have you sing 16 bars of a prepared song, and learn a song and dance from the show. If you are auditioning for TheatreFest, our summer performances, you will be asked to prepare a short monologue, read from sides, and sing and dance if it is a musical. However,every director and play’s audition requirements might be different.

When you arrive at a University Theatre audition, you’ll fill out an audition card.  Bring your schedule with you, the director will need to know all conflicts up front. Then, you’ll wait for the director or stage manager to call your name. Most likely, you’ll be partnered with others to read a scene and/or given a monologue. You’ll be given the opportunity to read more than once. It’s not necessary, but you may come to both nights of auditions if you wish.

Old Courthouse Theatre announces auditions for “Seussical The Musical”

By Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

Green Room Community Theatre will hold auditions for “James and the Giant Peach”

Join us at The Green Room Community Theatre for auditions for James and the Giant Peach. This all-youth production is directed by John David Brown III, The Green Room’s Creative Director.  It is adapted from the book written by Roald Dahl and dramatized by Richard R. George.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion which results in a tremendous peach. The peach launches James on a journey of enormous proportions. He finds himself among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, and he embarks on a dangerous voyage. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family.

James and the Giant Peach is produced by Automated Machine Design. Performance dates are March 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, and 25, 2018 with School Performances on March 22 & 23, 2018 (Snow date – March 26). Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 pm, and Sunday shows are at 3:00 pm. You must be available for all performances to audition.

Auditions will be held on January 15 & 16, 2018 at 7pm.  Auditions will be held at the Old Post Office Playhouse, located at 10 South Main Avenue, Newton, NC  28658.  Please enter at the lower level door at the back of the building (on South Ashe Avenue).  You only need to attend one of the audition dates.

Greater Shelby Community Theatre to hold auditions for “The Diary of Anne Frank”

Greater Shelby Community Theatre is proud to announce auditions for our next production this season, The Diary of Anne Frank! We are looking to fill 10 roles with excellent actors! Both men and women of various ages will be needed, including two parts for teenage girls and one for a teenage boy.

THE STORY: In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief. Each day of these two dark years, Anne’s voice shines through: “When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death!” This is a new adaptation for a new generation.
