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.

Set two years after Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, bookish middle-sister Mary is the last of the Bennet daughters to seek romantic escapades. When the Bennets arrive at Pemberley for Christmas, an unexpected guest sparks Mary’s hope for independence. Will she find an intellectual match or even love at Pemberley?
MARY BENNET Playing age 20’s
The quiet, often awkward middle sister, Mary is finally coming into her own. She is no longer the plain, boring girl she once was but has found her fire. She is extremely intelligent and loves her books. Curious and lively, her family sees only the spinster in her. She does not suffer fools.
ARTHUR DE BOURGH Playing age early 20’s to 30’s
A studious, unsociable, only child who has never been around women or large families. He is a loner who prefers books to people. He has recently inherited a large estate and has no idea what to do next or how to find out.
ELIZABETH DARCY Playing age 20’s +
Married to Mr. Darcy, Lizzy is confident, charming, and witty. She is fun and surprising and has taken her role of Lady of the house to a new level. Very close to her sister Jane.
FITZWILLIAM DARCY Playing age 30’s
A loving, generous, and smart (if slightly stiff) husband. Strong and opinionated, but adoring of his wife, Lizzy. He is quiet and vigilant and sees what others often miss. He knows what being lovelorn is like.
JANE BINGLEY Playing age early 20’s to very early 30’s
Is married to Charles Bingley and is seven months pregnant with her first child. Sweet and optimistic, she easily has the kindest heart in the house.
CHARLES BINGLEY Playing age mid 20’s to early 30’s
Gracious, happy, and ever focused on the love of his life, Jane. A good friend and always ready with a smile.
LYDIA WICKHAM Playing age 15 to 19
Flirtatious, youthful, self-centered. Her marriage to Mr. Wickham is a sham but she will not admit this. She is the person you want to have at your party: energetic, engaging, unstoppable.
ANNE DE BOURGH Playing age 20’s to early 30’s
The only daughter of the late Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Lived in her mother's very large shadow, never having to ask for anything or speak for herself her entire life. Judgmental and impatient, just like her mother.
