Audition Guideline and Tips

Audition - Rochester Civic Theatre

Upcoming audition opportunities:

Heaven Can Wait: March 27 & 28, 2017 @ 7pm

A delightful comedy about a boxer in 1938 whose soul is mistakenly snatched by an overzealous angle before his time is up. Now the boxer and the angel have to make things right by finding another body for him to inhabit. Unfortunately, the only body suitable is one that belongs to a man several people want dead.

We’re looking for 10 men and 7 women for the roles of Joe the Young Boxer in his prime, Mr. Jordan a mature Angel of upper management, Angel 7013 a middle aged bumbler, Julia Farnsworth a rich debutante, Tony Abbott a sneaky lawyer and cad, Bette Logan beautiful young woman in trouble, Max Levene Joe’s old crotchety manager whose wits get stretched to their extremes, Officer Williams a hard bitten detective, Mrs Ames a rather severe office assistant and several other male and female characters throughout the play. Adult roles for all age groups. Actors 16 years and up encouraged to audition.

The Rochester Civic Theatre Company practices color blind casting.
