It’s that time of year! We could not be more excited at the potential to work with you on our 77th season! We are dedicated, as always, to making each season as good as the last and we know together we will create beautiful, powerful, and unforgettable theatre.
There are some big changes this year for our General Auditions, your feedback has been invaluable in helping us better the actor experience.
Auditions are by appointment only and can be scheduled through this wonderful software. We are now completely digital! There will be no paper submissions this year as part of our ongoing efforts to cut costs down for our actors, but also to be more “green.”
Please make sure your current headshot and resume are uploaded for a smooth check in process. Please feel free to upload show photos, and video submissions through this software as well. You will be asked some questions through this system to help expedite this as well. Our conflict calendars are now integrated and will be completed prior to callbacks for each show.
If you cannot attend the general auditions please upload your headshot, resume and video submission of your work for all production team members to review during the process.
What to Prepare!
Hillbarn Theatre is auditioning for eight shows; 5 plays and 3 musicals. You will have 3 min total for your audition starting after you slate your name. Please look below for our guidelines.
Only Musicals: Please prepare two (2) contrasting songs cut at 16 bars each. Please bring sheet music in your own key and make sure it is double-sided. Your music should be in a binder and ready for the provided accompanist.
