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!

FOR ALL:  We will have school performances of A Christmas Carol on December 6 and December 7.  These performances are at 9:30 am and 11:30 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 have 3 public performances on Friday, December 8, Saturday, December 9 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, December 10 at 3:00 pm.

Rehearsals generally run 7-10 weekdays until performance week and the week before when we may run later.  There may also 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 the week before.
