2:00PM (for all singers)
4:00PM (dancer call for the Angels/Drag Queens only – singing preferred, but absolutely NOT required.)
WHO: We are seeking performers for two shows in our 2022 season. For Descendants we are first looking to fill the adult roles of the VILLAINS and HEROES. The teens who make up the majority of the cast of descendants will have the opportunity to audition in early 2022. For Kinky Boots we are looking to fill all roles with a diverse cast (16+) All voice and body types are encouraged to attend. If you want to audition, but cannot attend our open call, please contact us.
WHAT: Click the link to the show page above for the overview schedule, a complete character breakdown, and below for audition requirements.
WHERE: Stage Center Studios in SoBo, 5300 Barksdale Boulevard, STE D
DETAILS: SINGERS Please prepare 16-32 bars (roughly 45 seconds) of a song in the style of contemporary Broadway or non-Broadway pop/rock which most closely aligns with your physical and vocal type. You MAY sing from the shows. An accompanist will NOT be provided, but those auditioning are encouraged to bring tracks on a playback device. The dancing requirement for the adult characters in Descendants and most characters in Kinky Boots is minimal, so no dance audition will be required except for the Angels/Drag Queens.
DANCERS interested in portraying the drag queens who inhabit the Blue Angel Night Club in Kinky Boots should wear heels and clothes they can easily dance in. Your best drag is welcome, but not required. Headshot/Resume preferred.

Round 2 (Disney’s Descendants – TEENS): will take place in early 2022.
Round 3 (As-yet-to-be-announced Fall play): will take place in the Spring of 2022.
What are Season Generals?
Season Generals are an open casting call for productions in our upcoming season (2022).
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?
Sunday, November 14, 2021
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.

Once we receive your online enrollment, you will receive an invoice for tuition via email. Upon payment, your enrollment will be considered complete, and you will receive a second email confirmation.

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 TBA.
Two conflicts are allowed during contract, only if submitted by the deadline of TBA.
NO CONFLICTS are allowed within two weeks of performances.

Auditions for non-Troupe members will be held on Thursday, September 23 for any students enrolled in a minimum of 6-weeks of training with Stage Center’s School of Performing Arts for Fall, 2021. Students interested in joining the team to perform with our Troupe must be enrolled in at least one non-production class for Fall, 2021, and be available for all daily rehearsals (4:30-6:30) & JTF in Atlanta, GA, January 3-17, 2022. Students interested in attending the festival WITHOUT performing, can contact us to signup for the trip. Festival costs are calculated based on the total number of individuals who attend and the associated fees, and will be due on or about October 1. (In 2021 the cost was roughly $650/pp based on four sharing a hotel room, and not including food or travel.) In collaboration with our students, the 2022 festival piece will be directed by Jared Watson, with choreography by Katie Lerchie, and musical direction by Seth Taylor.
