General Audition Information
Thank you for your interest in participating in our shows. We aim to provide an excellent experience for our volunteer performers. To create a positive experience for everyone involved, we ask that you audition with the intent to fully commit yourself to the role offered to you. Additionally, you must notify the theatre of any professional or personal conflicts you may have for rehearsal dates and performances, or if you you plan on participating in a show that interferes with a BMT/Stars production. Once cast, the organization relies heavily on the actor’s commitment and obligation to the production.
Above all, when auditioning for a show at BMT/Stars… have FUN and be CONFIDENT in your abilities! We are excited to see what you can do!
