********************

We invite anyone of the appropriate age who is interested to try out for our productions – regardless of experience level. Rehearsal schedules are always available at and in advance of auditions so potential participants may determine the commitment required.

Please check the callback and casting page when looking for information about callbacks and casting after auditioning. More information will be provided at your audition.

There is no charge to audition for any show. However, those who are cast in one of our shows who are age 18 and younger will be asked to pay a very nominal production fee of $50.00 (only $75 for 2 or more family members.)
Production Fee does not apply to shows with adult casts or mature themes.

Discounts and partial need-based scholarships are often available based upon application.

Elm Street Players Audition Philosophy
All Elm Street Players auditions are truly OPEN, meaning no one has been pre-cast in any role.  All roles are available.
It doesn’t matter if you’re completely new to us, new to the stage,someone we know very well, or you’ve taken a class or camp. Everyone has the same chance to be in a show when they walk in to try out.
Things all directors look for:
Does this person have the skills needed for a role?
Do they have the age/appearance for a role?
Do they work well with others on stage?
Do they follow the directions?
Do they have conflicts with rehearsals or performances?
Casting a show is like putting together a wonderful puzzle. You might be a terrific puzzle piece but not for the puzzle we’re putting together at this time.  Or you may be just the exact piece we need!  Auditions are the only way to find out.
We thank you for sharing your time and talent with us and as they say in the theater: Break a leg!

For more information call 678-494-4251 or email director@elmstreetarts.org

Only those auditioning for the production are allowed to be present during the actual audition.  Parents and friends are asked to wait in the Lobby.

If you find you can’t try out, please call 678-494-4251 and cancel to allow another person that time slot.
You need to check the dates and times of rehearsals and shows on the website before auditioning and note any conflicts on your Audition Form.
You can print out an Audition Form from the website Downloads page and have it filled out and ready to hand in 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time.  You will be there for the entire one hour slot you have been assigned.
You don’t need a headshot, we will take a digital photo when you arrive.

You must sing by yourself at auditions if it is for a Musical — no duets with a friend. Please follow the directions given above regarding song preparation.
