General audition information
- Most shows rehearse for about six weeks. You will be asked to list any conflicts on your audition form.
- Be prepared to sing a song — bring sheet music for the pianist, no CDs. The song choice is up to you; although it can be helpful to sing something in the style of the show you’re auditioning for, the most important thing is to prepare a piece you feel comfortable with. If you get cut off after 16 or 32 bars, don’t worry — it’s normal for that to happen in auditions and does not mean you won’t get a callback or be in the show.
- Be prepared to dance — wear or bring shoes you can dance in, with loose, comfortable clothing.
- You can expect to be at auditions for at least an hour, possibly two.
- The Croswell’s artistic team is committed to flexible, imaginative casting. Performers of all backgrounds and ethnicities are encouraged to participate. Reasonable accommodations will be made for anyone with special needs.
- As a community theater, the Croswell generally does not pay for participation in performances, although a limited number of Equity Guest Artist contracts may be available. We are committed to providing all performers with a high-quality, professional-level experience in a friendly community theater setting.
