Notes on the Audition Process:
Auditioning for a show is probably one of the scariest and
most anxiety-producing things a performer can do. You may have seen people
auditioning on popular television shows, where the judges are very critical and
sometimes even mean. Auditioning at Maggie’s Little Theater is NOT like
Here are some tips to help you in the audition process:
Rehearsing and performing are very hard work. Shows at
Maggie’s Little Theater will be polished and high quality. We are looking for
dedicated and committed performers. So---
- Be prepared. Come ready to sing a song that you know
well – Don’t try to do something new.
- Bring sheet music in your key for the pianist.
- Wear comfortable clothing that you can move in – we
will be asking you to try a few dance steps. Even if you’re not a dancer,
we will be asking you to try!
At the audition:
- Relax! The people you are auditioning for want you to
do well. We’re rooting for you!
- Please fill out the forms COMPLETELY. Don’t leave
- You are allowed to ask questions. If you don’t
understand a direction – ASK.
Things to remember:
- Announcements of the cast will not be made until all
auditions are over. You will not find out if you are accepted at the
audition. One of the producers will call you if you are going to be offered
- Every show has a specific number of cast members and
our stage has a limited size.
- Not every performer who auditions will get a part in
the show. Sometimes a talented person is not cast in the show if there are
no suitable parts for the person to play. If there is not a part for you in
this show, please don’t be discouraged. No one, including
your favorite star, is cast in every show they try for. We’d love you to be
involved in this show in some other way, and audition again for another
- If you are under 18, you will need your
parent/guardian’s permission to be in the show. You will receive a
permission form if you are offered a part.
As we say in the
theater - “Break a Leg!!” (Good Luck!)
