Most of the productions at the Cocoa Village Playhouse are cast through open auditions throughout the year. Open auditions are usually held over a 1-3 day period approximately 1-2 months prior to the opening performance. Exact dates are announced here on our website as well as our facebook page.
While the procedure varies between shows, most auditions require a short singing audition (see below) and some basic movement. Depending on the needs of the show, the casting team may ask you to come back at a later date for callbacks. Callbacks can include singing songs from the show, further movement, or line readings.
