NOTE: Before going through the process of auditioning with us, please consider the following...

     **By going through the process of auditioning, you are seeking to enroll in a summer camp, and therefore agreeing to commit your child to the production and it's schedule should we have a spot for you. It is your responsibility to reference this information prior to your appointment. At Stage Center's SOPA we firmly believe that a good process begets a good product. To that end, we do not cast based on seniority within the company, nor do we post cast lists prior to the first day/rehearsal. All students interested in our shows are required to show up with open minds and hearts, eager to have a life-enriching experience. We are not interested in working with students and families who are only entertaining offers of leading roles, or featured parts. If cast, students will only be allowed one excused absence during contract, so we ask that you check our dates and times thoroughly before making a commitment.

Regular Season Auditions

UPCOMING AUDITIONS - 2017 Season Generals will take place this fall.


FAQ's

  • What are Season Generals?

Season Generals are an open casting call for all productions in our upcoming season (2017). 

  • Who can participate?

Actors and musicians ages 16 and up are welcome to make an audition appointment. Our School of Performing Arts productions audition separately.

NOTE: Actors who have worked with Stage Center in previous or current seasons may not need to audition again. Simply submit a headshot and resume with a cover letter expressing your desired involvement and you will be notified if you need to be seen specifically, or stop by during one of the audition blocks and fill out an audition form, or CLICK HERE to submit online. Conversely, all actors are welcome to make an appointment to be seen for a particular production if you feel we have not seen adequate or comparable work for your desired production.

  • Where are they held?

All auditions will take place at the Stage Center Studios at the Highland Center, 520 Olive Street, STE A-01. (Enter through the glass doors at the back of the building, off Stephens, and go downstairs. There will be adequate signs in the building.)

  • When do they take place?

Round One will take place on TBA, 2016. Additional auditions may be held at the sole discretion of the artistic staff.

  • Why should I audition or submit myself for Season Generals?

This is the first opportunity, and in some cases the only opportunity for actors to submit themselves for consideration for announced productions they are interested in being a part of. Additional audition dates are subject to the discretion of each production's director and Stage Center artistic staff.

  • Can children under the age of 16 audition?

All children interested in our School of Performing Arts shows will be able to audition at separate dates/times.

2016 SCHOOL OF PERFORMING ARTS PERFORMANCE TROUPE

This is an elite group of theater students, ages 8 - 18, who have been training hard and participating in productions for a number of years. Once admitted to the troupe, students take class in acting, singing, & dancing. Each fall, a new 15-minute production is chosen and rehearsed. The troupe then performs at the National Invitational Junior Theater Festival which takes place in Atlanta, GA over Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend in January, in addition to functions all over Shreveport/Bossier throughout the year. The 2015 Troupe is currently training for 2016 having just performed Seussical Jr. where they were recognized for Excellence in Dance, while the 2013 Troupe won Excellence in Music, and Outstanding Individual Male (Brennan Teutsch) at JTF2014 for their presentation of  Captain Louie Jr. Our 2012 Troupe received an award for Excellence in Ensemble Work in 2013.

Interested students must be available on Fridays from 4pm - 6pm, and need to CONTACT US for an audition appointment where they will need to perform a 1-minute monologue of their choice, and sing two contrasting songs memorized (preferably one ballad, and one uptempo, 16-32 bars [30-45 seconds] of each is sufficient), and submission of a professional headshot and resume.
**The next time students can audition for this troupe will be in August, where we will see qualified students to join 2015 as apprentices. Students interested in attending Junior Theater Festival, but are not members of troupe should CONTACT US.
