Auditions are held in spring for Spotlight Productions.

Audition Information

​​​​​​​​​​​Our simple, non-intimidating audition process is:
  • Open to anyone ages 6 and up
    (some productions require additional age restrictions due to licensing agreements)
  • Open to all experience levels
Our cast members will learn about the many aspects of live musical theater through workshops and activities throughout the rehearsal process. At the conclusion of the program, participants put on a full-stage production (six shows over two weekends) open to the public with tickets available for purchase. The $325 participation fee includes a t-shirt, photo CD, DVD, and other bonus materials.

Audition Dates

Auditions for 2020 are April 17-18.
