Our Casting Philosophy
Woodstock Arts is deeply committed to building an inviting and inclusive arts community that celebrates individuality and diversity and treats everyone with fairness and respect. We invite artists of all genders, races, sizes, and sexual orientations, as well as artists with disabilities to participate. We want to represent diverse communities in our organization and welcome you here.
This Teen Spotlight Production is an educational theatre program open exclusively to teenage performers. Accepted students will experience the full play production process from auditions to performances as part of our Mainstage Theatre Season led by a team of theatre professionals and educators.
TUITION AND SCHOLARSHIPS
Auditions will be in-person on Sunday, October 9th starting at 2:30 pm. Video audition submissions will be accepted until Sunday the 9th at 8:30 pm. You can send your Video Submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please slate (introduce yourself) on camera before you begin your audition. (NOTE: you will still need to fill out this online audition form along with a video submission.)
Rehearsals are scheduled weekly on Thursdays from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM and Saturdays from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM. The final week before performances, additional and longer rehearsals will be added: a 9AM – 5PM rehearsal on Saturday and daily weekday rehearsals from 6-10PM as we will be running the entire show with full technical elements.
There will be no rehearsal on Thanksgiving (November 24th). Each actor may not be called to every rehearsal and conflicts will be honored as best we can. Every actor will be called to all tech week rehearsals and performances.
When considering your pieces, pick audition material based on what you as a performer can do, not based on which roles you would like to play. We’d like to hear a song that showcases your vocal range and see strong character work and motivated choices within your monologue.
You are welcome to select your own material, or can use the selections at this Dropbox LINK if you need help choosing a piece. The provided sheet music for these options contains notes about the cut of the songs and music timestamps for reference. You are welcome to select up to two of the provided sides to perform.
