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.
- No Experience Necessary. We will train you!
- Vocal audition - Everyone will be asked to sing as part of the audition process. You can choose from the following options:Prepared song from sheet music (maximum 1 minute or 16 bars of music). We provide the pianist.
- Prepared song from CD accompaniment or flash drive with MP3 files. (must not contain prerecorded vocals and must stop after 1 minute)
- "Happy Birthday" with Piano accompaniment. We provide the pianist.
- Acapella Vocals will NOT be allowed!
- You will also be given simple stage movement to follow. Please dress comfortably with correct shoes to move.
- Gold Star Performers who desire company roles may arrive at auditions 30 minutes prior to start time, complete an applicatoin and speak with the Director regarding placement. This is not a guarantee of being cast. All performers seeking Principal Roles must complete the full audition.
