Audition Information

Thank you to all our great actors and actresses who came out for auditions on Sunday, June 13. We were blown away by the talent!

Callbacks will be held on Sunday, June 27 at 2PM. Everyone who auditioned will receive word whether they are scheduled for a call back audition. Those who are called but can't be there will be asked to do a video submission.

 

If you still want to audition, please come June 27 at 1PM. Drop us a line and let us know you are coming.  Dan and Michelle can be reached at ditzlerva@gmail.com

 

LOW is a gated community. When you arrive at the gate, simply let them know you are auditioning for the Players production and be prepared to show your ID. You will be issued a day pass to come in. Be aware that the gate gets very backed up on the weekends and allow extra time to gain entry.

  1. Parts and part sizes are listed below. Ages and stature parameters are approximate but overall look should fall within the stated range.

  2. Please be prepared to sing a piece that is reflective of the part you may be interested in. You may prepare a piece from the show if you like. We will NOT have an accompanist available, so you may play a track from your phone (please bring appropriate cord with you) or sing a capella. You may also be asked to perform some vocal exercises (ie: scales) either individually or with a group.

  3. Please be prepared to read sides from the show (they will be provided that day)

  4. Our choreographers will teach a short combination, so dress appropriately.

  5. Please bring a headshot along with your audition form. If you don’t have one, we will take a photo of you that day.

*We will follow COVID protocols as may be appropriate for the time*
