Auditions-Casting

Actors

Auditions dates for plays and the casting information is posted on this page.   Learn all you can about the play so you are familiar with it when you come to auditions.  Fill out an audition form making sure to list all your conflicts (days you cannot be at rehearsal).   Generally the director will hold open auditions (that means that everyone in the community is welcome to audition).  Some directors audition privately by appointment which allows them to work with a very small group at a time instead of a large group.  Auditions ususally are held Monday and Tuesday evenings.  If there is a large group of people auditioning the director will schedule a “call back”.  This is a smaller group of people that the director hasn’t decided on, but wants to take another look at before casting the show.  Generally the cast list is posted on a Friday of the auditions week and rehearsals start promptly the following Monday.  MHT provides the costumes for the performers if we are doing a show with specialized costumes.  We ask the performers to provide their own clothes as costumes if the show is set in present day.  Actors have to provide their own shoes -generally black or brown dress shoes for the males and character shoes or dark shoes for females.

It is helpful for auditionees to check out a perusal script 1-2 weeks ahead of time to become familiar with the play. At the auditions the director will assign parts at random and have auditionees stand onstage and read these scenes looking for a sense of character, expression, diction, vocal projection and general acting ability. They might also be asked to participate in some simple theatre games or improvisations. 

If you are auditioning for a musical you should check to see if there are specific songs you will need to sing from the show to audition (this does not apply to the Family Series). If you are unable to attend the scheduled audition date please contact the theatre to see if there is an alternate audition time when other auditionees will be present. Alternate audition times are not guaranteed. We make a concerted effort not to have “private” auditions for roles outside of the audition dates.

Perusal scripts for all shows may be checked out for three days with a $10 Family Series script refundable deposit and a $10 -$25 Adult script refundable deposit. Casting for roles are based on a variety of factors in addition to sense of character, expression, diction, vocal projection and general acting abilitiy. Casting can be also determined by the heights and ages of performers when compared with others who have auditioned. MHT believes strongly in color blind casting and seeks to cast new people as often as possible. All roles are available at auditions. Preference is also given to actors who will accept any role! Should an actor be unable to perform every effort will be made to recast the role from those actors already cast in the show.
