If acting is your thing, we have many opportunities year-round for you to try and make it to the stage!

For our major productions (spring musical, winter and fall plays), auditions are typically held 12-16 weeks before opening night. We also hold auditions for our Family Theatre, summer musical camp, and, periodically, for our On Book! Readers Theatre productions.

About the Show: Guys and Dolls JR. is an adaptation of the show considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy. Its namesake ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950, and won numerous Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Frank Loesser's brassy, immortal score and witty book makes Guys and Dolls JR. a perennial crowd pleaser.
