Audition Information

Auditions are open to everyone! Past theatre experience is not required.

We offer a safe and welcoming space to learn about all aspects of theatre, focusing on the process and teamwork. DreamWrights is a great place to learn and grow creatively. Bring the whole family – we have something for everyone to do.

Intergenerational shows (ages 7 – adult) are all doubled – both cast and crew – allowing for involvement of twice as many participants. (2017 Shows: Babe, the Sheep-Pig, Peter Pan and Mary, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (musical), and It’s a Wonderful Life) (2018 Shows: Jane Eyre, Bridge to Terabithia, Disney’s The Little Mermaid (musical), and A Seussified Christmas Carol)

Ages for the Summer Classic (single cast) vary each year, based upon the play selected.
(2017 – The Mousetrap 14-adult) (2018 – The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance 14 – adult)

Auditions are held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 6:00 pm (Except for The Giver at 4:00 pm).
You only need to attend one of the two nights. Please arrive as close to this time as possible.  Late arrivals may not be auditioned.

Advanced preparation is not needed except for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Into the Woods, and Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
If it is a musical, there will be a singing portion to the audition as well.

All crew positions are filled through auditionees.

Generally we audition in small mixed groups, but that is up to each director.
The length of an audition evening depends upon how many people show up!

Please wear comfortable clothing and closed toes shoes, especially if there is a dancing component to the audition! Please pull longer hair back from your face.

Bring your calendar to list any conflicts you may have with the rehearsal schedule.
(This does not eliminate you, but allows us to work out the final schedule to the best of all.)

Rehearsals typically start within one week of auditions and run evenings (6-9) and weekends.
Double casted shows alternate rehearsals between the 2 casts.
Frequency of rehearsals depends upon the role or crew position you receive.
