Curtain Players reminds actors and others of dates for script info sessions and open auditions for the community theatre company’s 2018-19 season, Season 56 for the producing organization.

Curtain Players is presenting six main stage productions as part of the new season. The cast for the opening production, On Golden Pond, was announced on June 19, but there are five more script info sessions and auditions on the calendar later this summer through mid winter. More details as they are available can be found by clicking the audition link in the upper left corner of this website's home page.

The schedule and open audition process follow the same patterns and protocols as recent seasons.

SCRIPT INFO SESSIONS  Script info sessions are scheduled for 6:30 PM on each of the assigned dates at the Curtain Players playhouse, 5691 Harlem Road (Galena OH 43021).

Curtain Players offers a script review session for each of its productions. The event is an opportunity for actors to become acquainted with the community theatre organization, to review the script, to discuss the play with the director (who will be present), and to ask questions about the audition process, rehearsal period, and production plans. Those interested in working behind the scenes are also invited to attend to learn more about the project.

AUDITIONS  Curtain Players conducts one evening of auditions for each of its productions. All auditions are conducted at the Harlem Road playhouse. Registration begins at 6:30 PM with actual auditions to begin promptly at 7 o’clock.

Curtain Players conducts open auditions. Roles are not cast in advance. Casting decisions are made by the director and a casting committee. The committee includes a member of the theatre board, a general member of the organization, and individual(s) of the director’s choosing.

Actors are encouraged to come to auditions familiar with the script and ready to read from the script. Every effort will be made to give all actors equal chances to read, at least twice. Resumes and head shots are helpful. Directors may specify audition activities particular to their individual productions.

In the event that someone wishing to audition is not available to attend on the appointed date, an early audition may be requested of the director. Early auditions are granted solely at the director’s discretion. The request for an early audition must be made no later than two weeks prior to the scheduled audition date.
