Audition Information

Who Can Audition

Unless posted prior to auditions, anyone can audition. It is suggested that you review the show information and character descriptions prior to deciding to audition.  

Where Are Auditions

All auditions for the 2019/2020 season will be held at: 

 Mankato Event Center 

12 Civic Center Plaza

STE 1700 in the Mankato Place Mall 

Mankato MN 56001.  

How to Audition

Please bring sheet music for a song you have already learned. A pianist will be provided to accompany you. 

  • Do not use a song from the show.
  • Do not sing to taped music or sing a cappella.


You do not have to sing an entire song. We only want to get an idea of how well you can carry a tune and follow accompaniment. Sixteen to 32 measures is all that is needed. If you are "called back", we will ask you to sing some more. 


Bring comfortable shoes in case you are asked to dance. We do not expect you to be an expert dancer unless you are auditioning for dancing role.


Please be prepared to list any and all conflicts you have for rehearsals. All rehearsal conflicts must be disclosed at the time of auditions. Conflicts are NOT allowed during Tech Week or for any of the performances.  

Will you accept ensemble?

Your audition form will have the question, "Will you accept ensemble? Yes or No". Please do not mark "yes" unless you truly intend to accept an ensemble role in the production. You will have a much better chance of getting cast if you are willing to accept any role or ensemble part offered to you as opposed to only wanting particular roles. The fewer roles you indicate you will accept, the fewer options the director has for casting you. 

Callbacks

Some actors auditioning will be asked to return for a "callback," that is, a second look. The called back actors may be asked to sing from the show and to do more extensive readings than in the "regular" audition phase .

Cast Lists

Please remember that an actor may still be cast even if not called back, and an actor may be called back but still not cast depending on what was marked on the audition form. The director may choose to call the actors and offer roles, however, the cast list will be posted on the website by end of day on the Friday following auditions, unless there is a need for additional auditions.
