2020 OPEN AUDITIONS will be announced shortly. Please join our email list for updates.
WHEN: Early January at 7pm. Only attend one day of auditions. No appointments are necessary. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to complete paperwork.
WHERE: Country Gate Playhouse, 114 Greenwich St, Belvidere, NJ 07823
WHAT TO PREPARE: To audition, prepare at least 16 bars from a song from the show, but be prepared to sing more. You will be accompanied by piano during the audition and sheet music will be provided. If you are interested in a specific role, please audition with a song from that role or at least be familiar with that characters' music in case we need to hear more. Remember to perform or "act out" the song, as we are looking for both singing and acting abilities. For general audition tips, click here.
REHEARSALS: Rehearsals will be held 3 days per week from 7pm to approximately 10:30pm. Youth actors will be released early. The week before opening, there will be rehearsals each night that may run late. A list of potential conflicts is required from anyone auditioning. It goes without saying that all auditionees must be able to attend all show performances. There is no fee for participation, however, actors are responsible for costumes and/or costume rental fees, which can range from $50-150 per costume. Cast members aged 16+ will also be required to attend at least 1 full workday on the weekend to assist with set/scenic work.
