Audition Guidelines

Rules To Live By

The grade requirements must be met as of the first day of rehearsal. Grade requirements refer to the 2017-2018 school year.

All auditionees must bring a headshot or photo. Resumes are recommended but not required.

Auditionees must prepare a one-minute memorized monologue. For musicals, please also prepare a one-minute selection from a Broadway-style song and bring either the appropriate sheet music or an instrumental CD/cassette. An accompanist will be provided. Singing a cappella or alongside of a recorded voice is strongly discouraged. For help selecting audition material, contact the Education Director.

Callbacks are generally scheduled on Saturdays the week following general auditions.

There is an instructional fee for children currently enrolled in grades 2-12 cast in any production at THT. The Mainstage fees include a cast t-shirt and show poster. The fees are not due at the time of the audition, but must be paid prior to the first rehearsal.

Registration is required in advance. Register online to schedule an audition appointment.

Fees are:

  • $131 for Showcase Productions
  • $141 for Mainstage Productions

Audition Dates & Times

For dates and times of auditions visit our audition calendar and to download audition forms in advance click here! Reminder: All participants in grades 2-8 interested in being cast in a production must have previously completed Acting Level One and/or Two (depending on the series' requirements) at the time of the auditions for a particular show. Anyone in high school does not need to participate in our classes in order to audition.

Acting Classes

Building Character On Stage

Completion of our core introductory skills class, Acting-Level 1 is a prerequisite for being cast in a Showcase Production. Completion of Acting-Level 2 is a requirement for being cast in a Mainstage Production for all children in grades 2 - 8. If you are in 7-8 grade, you are only required to take Acting - Level 2. This policy insures that everyone in a THT production not only shares the same basic theatre vocabulary and knowledge, but also understands the responsibilities of an actor from rehearsal to performance. Our goal is for every child to have a rewarding experience rehearsing/performing a show, much of which is dependent on knowing what is expected of them as a performer.

Performance Instructors

Training Young Actors

The theatre casts professionally-trained adult performance instructors for most of the Mainstage Series productions. In addition to performing featured roles in each show, performance instructors serve as mentors; leading daily warm-up exercises, running lines and reviewing blocking with young performers. They also teach a series of actor development workshops. These sessions focus on core disciplines such as voice, movement and characterization, as well as teaching show-specific topics such as stage combat, specialty make-up and puppetry. Candidates are encouraged to contact the Education Director at 433-8957 ext. 2831 prior to scheduled auditions.

Adult Casting

Adult roles are cast age appropriate in Mainstage Series productions. The theatre casts actors from its open auditions for each show.
