Disney's Beauty and the Beast: September 22 - October 8, 2017


So you want to be on stage?

Then come and join us for one of our auditions this season! The information below will be updated regularly with dates and times for both initial auditions and callbacks. And as we get closer, we'll also give you a sense of what you need to prepare - either a monologue or a short piece of music or some special skills that only you possess. We'll try to provide a list of roles that are available, so you know if there's something in the cast that's right for you, but it's always a good idea to read the play or listen to the soundtrack as well. Regardless, always bring a headshot or photograph of yourself, along with a theatrical resume, if you have one.  (please note, headshots and resumes become the property of the Players Guild Theatre and will not be returned).
