Never auditioned for a show before? Click here for some auditions tips!

Please come prepared with a song of your choice (it may be, but does not have to be, from the show) that also shows your acting abilities, and bring sheet music in the correct key for the accompanist. You will be learning a short dance routine, so please wear comfortable clothing.

Notes: Please come to the audition prepared to complete the application sheet. Pictures and resumes are welcome, but not necessary. Auditionees may be asked to read singly or with others. If necessary, auditionees may be asked to return for a call back. We ask that you be respectful of the other auditionees and maintain a quiet attitude.

Maggie’s Little Theater generally rehearses on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7:30-10pm and on Sundays from 5-9pm. Due to the facility and holiday schedules, there are occasional Fridays. Cast is required to keep the schedules clear for every night of production week, including the Saturday and Sunday before. Production week schedule TBD at a later date. Please bring your calendar to the audition in order to list your current conflicts. If cast in "Man of La Mancha" and subsequently auditioning for another production performing after "Man of La Mancha" is over, "Man of La Mancha" is your priority and these rehearsals are your conflicts for that production. Maggie’s Little Theater requires all cast members to perform volunteer activities outside of their role. Examples are: hall setup, distributing flyers and posters, set strike, production tasks, or similar.
