Auditions

Interested in tech at BLT? We need vaccinated crew members for this season. Join us Monday, January 17th at 7:00 pm for BLT’s next general business meeting at the theater, and let us know what you’re interested in doing. We really couldn’t do it without technicians!


Please Note: Boise Little Theater’s board of directors has decided that all production participants age 12 and over must be fully vaccinated (according to the CDC guidelines) before auditions are held.

What to expect:

Our shows are usually about a 3-month commitment from audition to strike. The rehearsal schedule is up to the director, but since many people involved in our community theater are not free until after work, we usually run rehearsals Mon-Fri from 7-9:00 pm and reserve the weekends for building/painting the set. Directors might ask the whole cast to rehearse the whole time, or group scenes with the same characters in them and only call the actors in those scenes (French scenes) to rehearse. Directors may give you a calendar of rehearsals that is subject to change. Our advice is to show up for auditions with your calendar of conflicts (class/work schedule, dentist appointments, friend’s wedding, etc.) and check the audition sheet. Often, the form you fill out lists the show’s performance dates (which are mandatory since we don’t usually use understudies/swings) and gives you a general idea of when that director is expecting to hold rehearsals. We realize this is a lot of generalization but hopefully, it gives you an idea of the time commitment expected when doing a show at Boise Little Theater. Thank you for your interest in creating theater with us!
