Auditions

Audition dates:

Sunday, August 7, 2:00 – 4:00 pm

Monday, August 8, 6:00 – 8:00 pm

Audition location:

The Sunset Theater 

234 Sunset Avenue

Asheboro, NC 27203

Before auditions:

  • Fill out an online form and sign up for a time slot (see steps 1 and 2 under Audition Registration heading).
  • Choose a historical character. Be prepared to share a brief story/event while pretending to be that person.

Arrival at auditions: 

  • Arrive about 15 minutes before the start of the actor’s audition time.
  • Upon arrival at the theater, sign in at the table in the lobby.
  • When your group is called, you will move to the backstage area for your audition. 

Backstage at auditions:

  • Our photographer will take a headshot (picture from shoulders up) of each actor. The directors use these photos to help remember who is who as they cast the show. The headshots are also displayed in the lobby during the performances. 
  • Actors will have a few minutes to read through, practice, and ask questions about the script selection(s) they will be reading for the director before they go in for their audition. Remember to pretend to be the character you are reading for when you do your audition. As you are practicing, think about who this character is and how they might act. 

The audition:

  • Actors will move with their group to the stage to audition. The director and stage managers will be present, as well as all the actors in the group. 
  • Actors will be grouped to read from the script selections. Remember to read with a loud, clear voice and to pretend to be the person you are representing in the script.
  • Actors will share the story/event they prepared. Let the director really see your personality!
  • Once the actor is dismissed by the director, they return to the lobby and are free to leave.

Callbacks

Callback date: Wednesday, August 10, 6:00 – 8:00 pm

Information about who receives a callback will be sent via email Tuesday, August 9. 

A callback means that the director would like to see an actor again, perhaps to hear them read other selections from the script or to see them next to another actor. Receiving a callback does not guarantee you a part in the show, and not receiving one doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be cast.

Cast List

The cast list contains a list of the characters in the play and who is selected to play each role. 

The cast list will be sent via email Friday, August 12. Actors will be asked to accept or decline their role by replying to the email. The cast list will be shared publicly after the first rehearsal.
