The Harbor Playhouse welcomes community participation and encourages new people to audition for productions. Bring your talent, your confidence, and a great attitude. We look forward to putting you center stage!
What to Expect at a Play Audition
Each actor will be given a number based on time of arrival. When auditioning for a play, actors will be asked to read pre-selected excerpts from the script. Some directors may incorporate other acting exercises to measure ability to follow direction.
1. For Musicals, prepare and memorize 16 bars of a song of your choice. A "bar" is a measure (the vertical lines on a page of music). When selecting a song, consider the style of show you are auditioning for.
2. Remember to bring:
Dance or closed-toe shoes (no flip-flops, sandals, or jewelry that impedes movement.)
Sheet Music for the pianist
1. Familiarize yourself with the show and characters prior to the audition. The internet is loaded with resources for finding plots, listening to soundtracks, and seeing videos of past productions.
2. Dress comfortably and be ready to make a strong first impression. Avoid costumes.
3. Arrive at least half an hour early so you have time for check in and warm up.
4. Remember to bring:
List of existing conflicts (You MUST be available for all performance dates)
