Audition

We Welcome All Actors To Our Auditions!

 

Scripts for all upcoming shows are available in the Box Office, located in the Main Stage theatre. Call (904) 261-6749 or stop by during Box Office hours to check out or read a script.

 

Auditions are closed, so usually you'll audition by reading scenes from the show's script for the director and casting team in the auditorium while the other actors wait in the lobby. If you cannot attend the audition on the scheduled date, contact ACT to arrange an alternate date. Some characters may be announced, precast roles.

All volunteer positions onstage and offstage are open to everyone, regardless of race, creed, national origin, sexual orientation, or previous experience. Newcomers are welcome and encouraged.
