Audition

Florence Little Theatre auditions are open to everyone.

We pride ourselves on having newcomers backstage or in the cast of every production. All auditions are held at the Florence Little Theatre. Prior experience is not required and all audition materials will be provided. Usually, those who are auditioning will be asked to read scenes from the show with others.

For musicals auditions, you will be asked to sing a song which demonstrates your vocal abilities. The musical director will go over the song before you are asked to sing. You will also be required to dance and the choreographer for the production will go over a dance with you before you dance for the director.

Sometimes, there are callbacks after the auditions; these are opportunities for the director to make his final decision before casting roles. It is important to know that not being called back does not mean that you will not be cast in the production.
