AUDITION APPLICATION |  The Audition Application may be downloaded and completed prior to auditions or may be completed at the audition, but must be signed by a parent or guardian for every child under 18 years of age. Please read the Actor and Parent Handbook for further information before auditioning.

PREPARING A SONG | Those auditioning have two options: 1) they may prepare one to two songs from a list of Honk Jr. songs that will be sent with accompaniment upon audition request, or 2) they may choose and prepare any 1-minute song in the style of the show, preferably with electronic accompaniment. 

PREPARING A MONOLOGUE | An optional 1-minute or less monologue may be prepared by those that feel they have something to show the casting team that was not showcased in their song selection. The monologue should be in the style of the show and/or a character of the show.

AUDITION DETAILS

CAST REGISTRATION CHECKLIST | You will receive a Cast Registration Checklist at the audition along with further instructions.  It requires that paperwork, payment, and parent meeting attendance are complete prior to scripts being distributed.

CALLBACKS | Callbacks will be held Tuesday, March 6 from 5:00-8:00 p.m. You will be notified by email if the director would like to see you for a callback. Being asked to attend callbacks is not an indication of how casting will occur.  

CONFLICTS | All potential conflicts must be indicated on the Audition Application.  A commitment to attend all rehearsals and performances not indicated as conflicts will be required. Missing additional rehearsals beyond those indicated may result in removal from scenes. Performance dates are April 27-29.  See the rehearsal and performance calendar below for dates and times. 

CAST LIST | Once casting is complete, the cast list will be emailed to the email address listed on the Audition Application.  On Tuesday, March 20 a read-through of the script will take place to acquaint each actor with the musical or play, as well as with their role.  Scripts will be distributed only to cast members who have turned in their completed Cast Registration Checklist.

FAQS

WHERE DO AUDITIONS TAKE PLACE? Auditions take place at the theatre, which is located at 359 Lake Park Rd, Suite 118 in Lewisville.  Upon arrival, park in the east parking lot and enter through the main doors.

WHAT WILL AUDITIONS BE LIKE? Each director holds auditions differently.  For this production, auditions will be closed.  Those auditioning will be called individually before the director and casting committee.  When a child takes the stage for the audition, he/she should give his/her name and age and tell the directors what he/she will be performing.  After the audition, the child is free to leave.

WHAT IF I AM OUT OF TOWN ON THE AUDITION DATE? Those who are not able to audition on the scheduled audition date will need to submit an Audition Application from this website and an audition video to auditions@getintotheact.org by the time the first audition begins. Include the show for which you are auditioning in your subject line.  

I AM INTERESTED IN A BEHIND-THE-SCENES POSITION. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO? Submit the production crew application from this website by March 20. Teens 13 and older are eligible for production crew positions.

WHAT IS A CALLBACK LIKE? No two callbacks are the same.  You could simply be asked to just show up, or you could be asked to prepare a specific song or memorize a few lines from the show.  Try not to stress about it and just be yourself! 

I READ THAT EVERYONE WHO AUDITIONS RECEIVES A ROLE. WHAT IF I AM ONLY INTERESTED IN CERTAIN ROLES? There is a place on the audition application to state this.  Make sure to write the word “only” after you’ve listed the role(s).  If the director chooses not to cast you in the “only” roles you’ve chosen, one of two things will happen: 1) You will not be cast in the show, or 2) You will receive a phone call from the assistant director or stage manager offering you another role in the show.  It is probable that if you do not receive the specific role(s) you listed, you will not be offered an alternate role. (Note school grade restrictions on the plays.)

WHAT IF I HAVE ALREADY ATTENDED A PARENT MEETING? The Parent Meeting must be attended once per season, beginning with the summer production.  If you have already attended a Parent Meeting in the 19th season that began with the summer production of Once Upon a Mattress, you do not need to attend another until next season.

MAY ADULTS AUDITION? Adults may audition, but are not guaranteed a role.  An adult participant is an actor who is age 19 or older, unless the actor is age 19 and is still enrolled in high school. If an actor turns 19 during a season and the actor is still enrolled in high school at the beginning of that season, the actor remains eligible to audition as a child participant until the end of that same season. Adults also pay the participation fee.
