Auditions

Auditions for Playhouse 2000 shows are roughly 8-12 weeks prior to the opening weekend of the show. Everyone is invited to audition, but we do our best to work very professionally. Actors should expect approximately 6 weeks of rehearsals. A full rehearsal schedule is typically available after auditions.  Auditioners for each show are only expected to attend one audition session unless specially informed about call-backs.

Fill out the form at the bottom of this page for any P2K show you are interested in auditioning for.  You still need to attend the auditions.  The director will have your form when you come to auditions but may ask for some additional information.  Thanks.

Synopsis:  For the residents of Grover’s Corners, daily life proceeds at a predictable pace. The milkman arrives like clockwork, the neighbors perpetually gossip about nothing and children contemplate their future.

Returning as a ghost, she ponders her existence.
