Frequently Asked Questions for LRCT Auditions

Where can I find the performance dates for the show?
Performance dates can generally be found under the Current Events bar on every page of the website.  For PC or Mac users, this can be found on the right side of each page.  For all mobile devices, Current Events can be found by scrolling to the bottom of each page.  

How can I prepare for auditions?
Check out the script if possible and listen to all songs if it is a musical.  Under the Auditions page of the website, there will be specific instructions on what you need to prepare for music or acting roles. For musicals, you will be asked to sing and dance at auditions.

What time should I arrive for auditions?
Those who wish to audition must arrive between the hours posted on the advertised listing.  It would be helpful for us to know in advance if you expect to arrive within the last hour of auditions. 

Is there anything I need to do once I arrive?
Once you arrive, you will be asked to complete an audition form including your personal contact information, the role(s) you want to be considered for, previous performance experience, dates you are unavailable and other commitments to your time.  Your headshot will also be taken.  

What if I have no performance experience?
If you do not have any performance experience, this will not impact your ability to be cast.  

Will I have to sing or act in front of other people who are auditioning? 
For musicals, you will most likely be put in groups based on the order in which you arrive and the song you will be auditioning with.  Each group will begin by warming up and singing the required audition song together. You will then be brought in individually to sing in front of a small group consisting of the director, music director, a producer, and an experienced member of the LRCT Board of Directors. 

Do I have to participate in a dance audition?
Yes, everyone who is auditioning for a musical needs to participate in dance auditions.  All dance auditions for musicals will be done in the same groups from the music audition.  The choreographer will teach a routine to one of the songs from the show and then you will be asked to perform it together as a group.  You may be asked to show off any extra skills  (tumbling, tap dance, contortion, etc) you may have!

What should I wear?
If there is a dance audition, please be adequately prepared to move comfortable by wearing appropriate clothing and shoes (no sandals, boots, bare feet or crocs). Dance shoes or sneakers are best!  Skirts and jeans aren’t the best attire to dance in.  If it is a dance heavy show, you may want to bring some water.

What happens after?
After auditions have concluded, a few people will be contacted and asked to attend “call-backs”.  Call-backs is a second audition where participants sing or read from the script under the role(s) the director(s) specify.  If you are not asked to participate, this does not mean that you are not being considered for a main character or ensemble role.

When will the cast list go up?
Casting a show takes time and consideration.  It may take several days for the director(s) to make a decision.  Once we have the cast list, it will be posted on the main page of the website and on the Lake Region Community Theatre Facebook page.
