Getting in the Act

SO . . . you want to be an actor?  GREAT !

Everyone is Welcome.

We hold Open Auditions for all of our

productions, and

EXPERIENCE IS NOT REQUIRED ! !

THE AUDITION

Most auditions consist of reading sections from the show’s script.  For the most experienced actor, this process can be a bit scary, but don’t worry.  Perfection is not expected.  Before you read, you are given time to review the scene.

For musical productions, you will be asked to sing (unless you’re auditioning for a non-singing role).  We suggest that you prepare a musical number on your own.  You may bring an accompaniment CD or your own instrument (guitar, etc.).

An acappella rendition of ROW, ROW, ROW YOUR BOAT

will work ! !

TIME COMMITMENT

Prior to the production’s opening date, most shows rehearse 2-4 evenings per week.  Because of work, school and other time contraints, it takes a period of five to seven weeks of preparation.

Don’t let the time commitment turn you away.  Very seldom will you be required to be present at every one of the rehearsals.

INFORMATION ABOUT AUDITIONS

Audition announcements are published on our website, local newspapers, our outside marquee and  in LWA’s newsletter.

If you are unable to attend any of the scheduled audition dates, most directors will make arrangements to meet with you at a more convenient time.

NOT SURE YOU WANT TO BE AN ACTOR . . . . . .YET ?

Then get your feet wet !  Work backstage or in the technical booth.  Many people have started their acting careers  “behind-the-scenes”.

And remember:  DON’T LET INEXPERIENCE STOP YOU.   As a community theatre, our purpose is to involve anyone who has an interest in theatrical production.
