Auditions

Interested in tech at BLT? We need vaccinated crew members! Join us Monday, May 16 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 our technicians!


Please Note: Boise Little Theater’s board of directors has decided that all production participants (cast & crew) must be fully vaccinated (according to then-current 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 build/paint the set on weekends. Directors might ask the whole cast to rehearse the whole time, or group scenes with the same characters in them (called “French scenes”) and only call the actors in those 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!

Summary: A shipwreck starts the play. Viola washes ashore in the topsy turvy world of Illyria (and thinks her brother Sebastian is lost). She determines to survive on her own and explore this new land. Illyria is a place filled with eccentrics and romantics! That is how it seems to Viola, who has entered this merry world. Disguised as a boy and employed by Count Orsino (who she falls madly in love with), she quickly becomes the object of desire to Olivia, who Orsino has sent her to woo. She and everyone else in Illyria will be bewitched, bothered, and very bewildered before everything is finally and very happily sorted out!
