Auditions are open to everyone in the community. Roles are unpaid.
Of a recent season’s total 136 roles, 73 roles, including principals, were cast with actors who had not previously acted at Theatre in the Round.
TRP hires professional artistic directors for each production. These directors conduct their own auditions and callbacks, so the process varies from show to show (e.g., readings from the script vs. prepared monologues). Casting decisions are made solely by the director. The theatre encourages its directors in diverse casting (ethnic/racial background, gender, disability, etc.).
Scripts are available to read at the theatre during weekday business hours and at the audition. Scripts cannot leave the building.
Unless otherwise noted below, the front door is unlocked at 6 pm and auditions begin at 7 pm, continuing until everyone is seen. No appointments: people are seen in the order they arrive.
Enter the building through the main entrance on Cedar Avenue (do not park in the lots adjacent to the building) and register with the Board member at the reception table. We encourage you to bring an acting resume and headshot (non-returnable).
If you need access services, please call ahead.
Directors need to know all conflicts BEFORE they can cast a show. List all your possible conflicts on the audition form.
Please read TRP’s minor policies (both minors in the company as well as those accompanying adults in the company).
Anti-Discrimination and Non-Harassment Policy: The theatre has established a policy to protect volunteers from unlawful harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. All company members are asked to review and acknowledge this policy.
