IMPORTANT NOTE ON OUR CORE VALUES: Before enrolling in our production class, please consider the following…
**You are agreeing to commit your child to the class’s production and schedule. At Stage Center’s SOPA we believe that a good process begets a good product. Every enrolled student will be required to audition as a part of this process. The audition is for the instructors to assess each student’s abilities and vocal/physical type so that they can be placed in the role that best serves the production and our educational goals. We do not cast based on seniority within the company, nor do we pre-cast any role on student productions. The cast list will be posted during the second week of class. All students interested in our production classes are taught 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 seeking leading or featured roles. We teach that theater is about an ensemble coming together to tell a story, and every person involved has a vital role for it’s success. We allow each student to submit two absences during contract provided they are approved prior to the first class, and do not fall within two weeks of performances. We ask that you check below for dates and times before enrolling, so that the rehearsal schedule can be thoughtfully made with no last-minute hiccups/absences. If you are unsure about some conflicts with our schedule, please feel free to ask us so we can help you decide if it’s realistically something you have the time to make such a big commitment. NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED TO STUDENTS WHO WITHDRAW AFTER COMPLETING ENROLLMENT.

A detailed schedule/call sheet will be issued by TBD.
Two conflicts are allowed during contract, only if submitted by the deadline of TBD.
NO CONFLICTS are allowed within two weeks of performances, this includes November 17 & November 26.

Stay Tuned for our 2023 Season General Auditions!

What are Season Generals?
Season Generals are an open casting call for productions in our upcoming season (2023).
Who can participate?
Actors and musicians ages 16+ (high school to adult) are welcome to audition (unless noted otherwise.) Our School of Performing Arts productions will audition separately. NOTE: Actors 18 and older 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. Students under 18 are required to audition. Conversely, all actors are welcome 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 in South Bossier (SoBo), 5300 Barksdale Boulevard, STE D. (Right next to Pak’s Karate at the base of the water tower.)
When do they take place?
See specifics of each show above.
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, unless a specific notice is giving for a Mainstage production. Feel free to CONTACT US for clarification.
