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.

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!
