Auditions listed below are for the 2019-2020 season. Audition dates, times, and locations vary.
The Averitt Center is YOUR community arts center, and auditions are open to EVERYONE. No experience is required. Even if you have never been in a production before, don’t be shy about auditioning. During each season, we have roles of all sizes for adults, teens, and children.
AUDITIONING FOR A NON-MUSICAL PLAY | All auditions are "cold-reads," unless otherwise noted, so you do not need to prepare a monologue or memorize anything in advance.
AUDITIONING FOR A MUSICAL | Prepare 16-24 bars (one verse and a chorus) of a song in a similar style to the show you are auditioning for. Please bring sheet music (a pianist will be provided). Choose a song that enhances and shows off your singing skills, this can include a song from the play you are auditioning for. You may also be asked to take part in movement or dance auditions, where the choreographer will ask you to learn a few steps. Please no acapella auditions.
For questions, please contact Averitt Center Artistic Associate Robert Cottle.
