Audition Notes

Our shows are usually about a 3-month commitment from audition to strike. The rehearsal schedule is up to the director, but typically, most people involved in our community theater are not free until after 5 pm. We usually reserve the weekends for building/painting the set and run rehearsals Monday through Friday from 7-9:00 pm, but that is up to the director. Some directors may group together scenes with the same characters in them and only call the actors in those scenes to rehearse. So, depending on your part, you could be at fewer rehearsals or be called to come in later than 7:00 pm or leave before 9:00 pm, etc. However, some directors ask the whole cast to be there the whole time. Directors might 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. Typically, 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 “usually” and “typically,” but hopefully, that gives you a better idea of what kind of time commitment to expect when doing a show at Boise Little Theater. Thank you for your interest in creating theater with us!
