MidWest Theatre Auditions
February 22-24, 2013
WEATHER UPDATE (2/21): The MidWest Theatre Auditions will continue as scheduled in the event of inclement weather. Please allow extra travel time in the event of winter storms. If weather delays prevent you from being on time to your audition slot, we will attempt to fit you in at a later time. We will do our best to accommodate all auditions who are affected by weather delays.
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2013 MidWest Theatre Auditions. Please check back in Fall 2013 for information about the 2014 MWTA!
General auditions begin at 8:30 a.m. each day. Callbacks will be held during the afternoon and evening of the same day. Each auditionee will have a one-and-a-half-minute time frame to present one or two pieces. Musical pieces are encouraged for those wishing to be considered for musicals, but one at least one piece must be non-musical. An accompanist will be provided.
Dance auditions are optional and will be held each day following the general auditions.
Applications will be available online in mid-October. The MidWest Theatre Auditions is going paperless, so we no longer accept mail-in applications. Acting Audition applications will be due December 7, 2012. Tech, Design, and Stage Management Interview Applications will be due January 11, 2013. Please select your area of interest from the drop down menu to see more specific application instructions.
Tech, Design and Stage Management Interviews
The interviews are located at the Nerinx Hall Cafeteria. You will be assigned a time period in which you are able to interview with the theatres of your choice. The time periods are 10 a.m. –noon and 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, February 23, 2013. Callbacks occur during the evening on the same day as your interviews. Your application will be photocopied and given to the theatre representatives; however, you will need to bring resumes and your portfolio to your interviews.
Headshots and Résumés
All applicants should bring copies of their résumés and headshots to the auditions for callbacks. After you send in your application, you will receive an e-mail confirmation which will guide you through the process of sending in a small headshot that will be given to the theatre representatives.
There is an application fee of $40, payable online by Visa or Mastercard. We do NOT accept any other forms of payment. Checks and cash are NOT accepted.
