Do you love to sing, dance or act? Have you ever thought about participating in a Duncan Little Theatre show? We have a great opportunity for you coming up! Auditions are coming up April 11-12 for our summer show, “Raise the Roof 2.” This is an original production that will be a fast-paced variety show. We are looking for singers, dancers, actors and folks of all ages who want to have a great time with other community members who support the arts. The rehearsal schedule will be lighter than other shows, and participants will be given the opportunity to participate in as few as one number in the show or many. We would love to have entire families join in on the fun. No experience is necessary! Come down to DLT Sunday April 11 from 2-4pm or Monday April 12 from 6-8pm. We look forward to seeing YOU there! Bring your siblings, parents, grandparents, neighbors and friends! Please help us spread the word! #DLTraisetheroof2021

DATES:
Sunday, April 11 from 2 pm to 4 pm & Monday, April 12 from 6 pm to 8 pm.LOCATION: Duncan Little Theatre — 824 W. Main St.

WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING?
To be considered for the cast, please be ready to fill out audition paperwork. Due to COVID, we are only asking those who wish to be considered for a solo to sing, and those with a unique talent to perform a one minute demonstration of their act. Those who wish to be considered for a solo should prepare one 32-bar (approx. one minute) cut of a song that you love to sing. The initial audition is about getting to know you, so let us see your personality shine! Please bring a karaoke or instrumental track to accompany your audition. We will provide an AUX cord to play your track via cellphone or other electronic device.

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Raise the Roof will have a large cast consisting of adults, teenagers and children. Our director is looking for singers, dancers, actors and those with unique talents such as juggling, yo-yo, acrobats, hula-hoop, etc. The sky is the limit! This will be a fast-moving variety show. This year Raise the Roof will feature individuals and small groups more than large groups due to COVID.Anyone wishing to help with another area of the production (painting, costumes, set) may also come by and share their contact information.

Duncan Little Theatre
Audition Policy

Duncan Little Theatre
Audition Policy

To strive for a fair audition process, Duncan Little Theatre will follow this policy in regards to all auditioning and casting activities for all productions.

Duncan Little Theatre auditions are open to anyone who desires to audition.  No show will be pre-cast.  Duncan Little Theatre will strive to cast those they feel will best suit the role and production with the Director and a panel making the selections. The panel will consist of a minimum of three people. Those people will include the Director and Producer(s), with a combination of a Board member, Assistant Director, Stage manager, Vocal director and Choreographer. Any pre-set combination of these roles may be used for the panel and will remain the same throughout the audition process.

First consideration will be given to those who audition in person. Those who cannot be physically present for auditions are encouraged to submit a live video stream (FaceTime, Facebook Live, etc.) at a prearranged time with the panel. No pre-recorded video submissions will be allowed for auditions. Someone who cannot make the scheduled audition times in person can schedule an alternative audition date if all the panel members are available, but those alternative dates cannot be any earlier than two weeks prior to the auditions.  

Callbacks are optional but will be decided upon when the production team sets the audition dates.  Callbacks must be in person. In case of an emergency and at the discretion of the panel, an alternative time can be provided.

Duncan LittleTheatre will never allow favoritism to be shown at an audition. Every audition will begin from a level playing field.

Duncan Little Theatre will always strive to make the audition process open and polite. Every auditioner will be shown appreciation for their willingness to audition.

Duncan Little Theatre will always present a prepared audition process. Auditioners’ time will always be a consideration.

Duncan Little Theatre will strive to provide timely notification throughout the casting process. All auditioners will be notified as soon as possible regarding casting decisions.
