Auditions & Casting

The Augusta Players holds open auditions for all Mainstage, Youth Theatre, and Children’s Wing Productions throughout the year. Audition dates, times, and places are posted on the web page as well as local newspapers prior to the audition.

The Augusta Players does not require previous stage experience to audition, just your talent and desire to be part of the production process. During the audition you will be required to read from the script (material provided). If you are auditioning for a musical, in addition, you will be expected to sing a prepared selection from the show, and learn a simple movement routine from the productions choreographer. You can find Audition Tips Here

If you are not cast, do not be discouraged, but continue to audition to gain experience. Understand there are many factors when casting a production.

We look forward to seeing you at an audition soon!

Please do not call the church for information.  They are just providing a location and have no knowledge of the show.

AUDITIONS FOR CHILDREN:  There are many children’s roles (male and female) and a children’s choir in A Christmas Carol.  All ages 6-16.  Children do not need to prepare anything but a song will be taught at the audition.  Please be on time.  If the child cannot be at the Saturday audition, they will need to bring a prepared piece of music.

AUDITIONS FOR ADULTS:  All roles except Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past and Present are available.  Please bring a prepared solo to sing.  An accompanist will be provided, but please bring your own music.  There may be cold readings from the script.  Be prepared for a basic choreography audition as well (no open toed shoes, sandals or flip flops.)

FOR ALL:  We will do several daytime performances of A Christmas Carol for schoolchildren during the week beginning December 8.  These performances are at 9:30 am and 11:00 am each day.  This means if you go to school, you must plan to miss school and if you work, you must plan to miss work.  Many schools consider performances with the Augusta Players an excused absence.  Please check with your school.

We will also do 2 public performances on Saturday, December 13 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, December 14 at 3:00 pm.

Rehearsals generally run 7-10 weekdays beginning October 20 (except Wednesdays) until performance week and the week before. There may be some Saturday dance rehearsals.  Please bring your list of mandatory conflicts so that we have that information when casting.  No conflicts are allowed during performance week and possibly the week before.

For information NOT LISTED HERE, call (706) 826-4707.
