Theatre Auditions

What to Expect During an Audition

  • No preparation is needed for auditions for most Manhattan Arts Center shows.
  • Please arrive between 7 and 8pm either night of scheduled auditions and fill out an audition form (you can also fill out an Audition Form online).
  • You will typically have a chance to read through the passages from the script that the director has selected.
  • (Note: For musicals, please come prepared to sing a song no longer than 2 minutes, and bring sheet music if you would like accompaniment. Also, while not all roles in musicals require dancing, please wear comfortable clothes and shoes for a short dance audition.)

If you are not cast, we welcome your participation in backstage roles.
