Grease is the word, and we want YOU to be a part of this electrifying show! Town Theatre will hold auditions for Grease on Sunday, January 29 and Monday, January 30 at 7:30 PM. (Auditionees only need to attend one night.) We are looking for actors who can realistically play 1959 high school juniors and seniors whose actual age range may be as young as 16 years old up to the mid to late 20s.
Please prepare 16 bars of a song showcasing your voice. We ask that you NOT sing a song from Grease or from the 1978 film version. An accompanist will be provided, or you may bring a device to connect to a Bluetooth speaker. No a cappella singing permitted. All auditioning should dress comfortably for movement.
Callbacks will be held on Wednesday, February 1 at 7:30 PM where scene readings will take place. Not everyone will need to attend callbacks – you will be notified if needed. However, if you are not called back, it does not mean you are not cast.
Download your Grease audition form and bring it with you. Grease will be directed by Jerry Crouch, with musical direction by Amanda Hines and choreography by Tracy Steele. The show runs May 12-28, 2023.
