The Indiana Repertory Theatre’s annual open auditions were held on March 27 & 28, 2017. These auditions constitute the IRT’s Equity Principal Auditions for the 2017-2018 season. Show-specific auditions are by invitation only.
Open auditions for the 2018-2019 season will be announced in March or April 2018.
Open auditions are by appointment only each spring. Open auditions are principally for members of Actors Equity, but we may be able to see non-AEA members who wish to audition, time allowing. We will only see actors who are eighteen years of age or older. Auditioners are asked to prepare a contemporary and a classical monologue totaling no more than three minutes and bring a resume with up-to-date contact information and two copies of a photo/headshot.
Young actors, ages 8-16, who wish to audition for A Christmas Carol will need to prepare a one-minute monologue or story, and bring a recent picture and short résumé to the audition. Actors age 8 to 10 may do a poem, monologue or story.
Children of all cultures and ethnicities are highly encouraged to audition.
Monday, August 21 from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
Tuesday, August 22 from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
Callbacks will be on Wednesday, August 23 starting at 5:30PM. All auditions will be held at the Indiana Repertory Theatre.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 317.635.5277 starting on June 26, 2017 to schedule your audition appointment and for additional audition information.
A Christmas Carol will begin rehearsals on October 24th and tech days are November 10th─12th with an adjusted schedule for young actors. The first preview performance is on November 14th and the show opens November 17th (Rehearsals end). The show closes on December 24th.
Many rehearsals are during the latter part of the school-day during the week and full day on both Saturday and Sunday. There are approximately 30 public shows and approximately 35 maximum student matinees. These show numbers are subject to change at all times. The student matinees are at 9:45 AM and 12:00 PM (or one at 10:30 AM) during the weekdays. There are two casts of young actors so the performances are shared between them however, approval from your child’s school is absolutely necessary if cast.
This is a casting audition so we are unable to give feedback on the work done during the audition. Detailed notes can be given on the young actor’s work in the IRT’s strong classes program that runs two sessions during the season and in one of the IRT Summer Youth Workshops, which at this time, include a two week camp and a four week intensive. One of the best places to find audition material is at your local library!
*Note there has been a change in the age range for A Christmas Carol. If you need to know more, feel free to contact the IRT.
