the audition process
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, auditions will be held via online submission.
Auditions are now closed. Submissions were accepted between Monday September 21st to the end of the day Monday September 28th.
We ask that in the beginning of your video, please slate your name, height, and age, then deliver a prepared 1-1.5 minute monologue of your choosing.
If you have never submitted an audition online before, not to worry!
One of our acting coaches, Neil, has put together an entertaining and informational video about how to do this!

from past seasons
Our audition process has changed, and streamlined for maximum safety.
Our rehearsals will require masks, and, if mandates remain the same, we will also wear masks while performing.
Our performance will be a hybrid of both live performance, and film set technique. We are innovating a whole new kind of theatrical experience!
Our final, and only performance, will not be open to the public unless mandates change and we are in Phase 3 of COVID-19 reopening.
We expect, like in the past, that the students arrive on time, and treat one another with kindness.
We will send COVID procedures out in an email prior to our first rehearsal, please read them over as a family and make sure you ask us questions via email if you have any.
We expect to have our families volunteer just as we have in the past, the positions will just be different than what they have been. More to come once the show is cast!
We expect that we will all give each other grace as we figure out how to best follow state mandates while still prioritizing enjoyment for our families, and the Gresham community.
