Auditions

Calling all sailors, socialites and stowaways! Get ready to set sail on Town Theatre’s high seas with our 105th season opener Anything Goes. We hope you’ll come aboard!

Auditions will be held Monday and Tuesday, June 10 and 11 at 7:30 PM. You only need to attend one evening of your choice. Individuals 14 and up should prepare a song (less than one minute) that best showcases your voice. Bring sheet music (an accompanist will be provided) or bring accompaniment on a device that can connect to our speaker via Bluetooth. Dress for movement and, tappers, bring your shoes. Readings will be done after dance, time permitting, or will take place at callbacks at a later date.

All roles are available. A list of characters, ranges and descriptions is below.

Please complete this audition form and bring it with you to auditions:
