Auditioning at LifeHouse Theater
Auditions will be held on a first come-first served basis. All are welcome and roles are open for men and women. Men are especially encouraged to audition. Generally, those auditioning should be at least 10 years of age. Please note that some shows may have need of actors younger than 10 or may be casting adults only. Be sure to refer to the character list of each production for more precise age requirements.
Auditioners should bring a theatrical resume and a recent photo to leave with the audition panel. Those without a photo may have a picture taken at the auditions for a $2 fee. Prior experience is not necessary to audition, so those without a theatrical resume may indicate any performing experience such as church choirs, public speaking, etc.
Auditioners should also bring their own sheet music in the preferred key, and be prepared to sing a short selection of about 16 measures. A pianist will be provided but will not be able to transpose any sheet music. Auditions with CDs will not be accepted. Those without sheet music will be asked to sing “Happy Birthday” with the accompanist.
*For dramas, please prepare a dramatic monologue around one minute in length.
