All roles and parts in musicals and operettas are cast by way of the audition process. Casting decisions are based on the ability presented during the audition and the individual’s availability for the rehearsal schedule. Those wishing to audition are requested to be prepared to sing a song of their choice. An accompanist is provided. Depending on the show, some dancing skills are required and group auditions with the choreographer are then required.
One need not be a member of Musical Theatre Productions in order to audition, but if chosen for the cast, membership is required. Cast members are also expected to assist with poster distribution and sometimes other forms of publicity, ticket sales, etc.
