Santa's Reindeer Review 2011
We are seeking young actors between the ages of 8 and 17 to audition for roles in our main stage productions.
If you are interested in playing a part in an upcoming play, plan on attending one of our audition dates.

From 3pm to 3:30, we will give an overview of our theatre and what it’s like to be part of our program. This is for actors who have never acted with us before. If you are familiar with our theatre program, you don’t need to arrive until 3:30.
From 3:30-4:30, we will play improvisational games and read a few scenes from the play.
From 4:30-5pm we will see monologues prepared by actors who are auditioning for a specific role, or a larger role. If you have not prepared a monologue, you do not need to stay past 4:30.

If you’re interested in a specific role prepare a short, one minute monologue to show that you can become a character very different from yourself. It’s free to audition and, if cast, free to participate as an actor or backstage crew member. Not every actor who auditions is cast. Dates and times subject to change. For more information, or if you have a conflict with an audition date, contact
