Audition Info and Signups

AUDITIONS WILL BE HELD IN MID-MAY 2020.
Signups will open in April 2020, and more details will be posted to this page as we get closer to auditions.

ABOUT THE SHOW: Click here to learn about our approach to this groundbreaking, timeless show.

CAST: ALL roles are open to rising 9th-12th graders, college students, and young adults in their 20s and 30s.  If we make any age exceptions, they will posted here as we get closer to audition signups in April 2020.

REHEARSALS: Rehearsals begin MAY 2020. Those cast will only be called to rehearsals when needed, sometimes for parts of rehearsals as well (you will not be called to every single rehearsal until July). The bulk of rehearsals will happen on Saturdays from 9:00am-2:00pm, Sundays from 5:00-10:00pm and two additional floating weekday evenings from 6:30-10:00pm. Those preparing to audition should do everything possible to keep those dates and times available.

PERFORMANCES: The production will run July 21-26, with required strike (take down of all set/lighting/clean-up) on July 27.

REQUIREMENTS: We WILL have roles for non-dancers available in the cast. Audition song and dance requirements will be posted here as we get closer to auditions.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Upper Room Theatre Ministry is sponsored by All Saints Catholic Church.  Casting will result in a mixture of members from All Saints in addition to those outside the church membership.  We certainly welcome anyone within the required age ranges to audition.  Be aware that because we are a ministry, we incorporate prayer into our rehearsal process by beginning and ending our rehearsals with prayer and dedicating our efforts to God. You don’t have to be Catholic, just open to allowing faith into the theatrical process.

Everyone is a volunteer. Any money that is made as a fruit of the production is directly contributed to helping pay for theatrical renovations and youth ministry spiritual opportunities and missions.

Anyone involved with our production over 18 must be Virtus-approved (this is our child protection program, since we will have people involved with the production under 18). It’s EASY to be approved as long as you fill out paperwork (this is the link to Virtus paperwork), permit a background check, and attend a 3-hour training on a Saturday morning. You can learn more at www.virtus.org (our diocese is Arlington). You do NOT need to do this prior to auditioning.
