AUDITIONS

All auditions take place at the Little Theatre unless otherwise posted. Pensacola Little Theatre is YOUR community theatre, and auditions are open to EVERYONE. No experience is required. Reading the play is not required before an audition, although you can come by the main office and read a perusal copy of the play you are auditioning for. The perusal copy may not leave the building. Even if you have never been in a play before, don’t be shy about auditioning. During each season, we have roles of all sizes for adults, teens and children.

AUDITIONING FOR A NON-MUSICAL PLAY

All auditions are "cold-reads," unless otherwise noted, so you do not need to prepare a monologue or memorize anything in advance. Perusal copies of upcoming plays are available to read at the PLT Business Office during regular business hours.

AUDITIONING FOR A MUSICAL PLAY

Prepare sixteen bars of a song in musical theatre style (unless otherwise indicated). Bring sheet music or a CD and CD player for accompaniment. If you use an .mp3, you may plug into our speaker. Choose a song that enhances and shows off your singing skills - usually not a song from the play for which you are auditioning. You may also be asked to take part in movement or dance auditions, where the choreographer will ask you to learn a few steps.  Please no a capella auditions.

PLEASE NOTE: Audition dates are subject to change without notice. Call Kathy Holsworth, Artistic Director, at 850-432-2042 ext. 102 for more information.

The Further Adventures of Nick Tickle, Fairy Tale Detective Directed by Debi Dunkerly and Jay Bixler

10 Performances July 7 - 16, 2017 (an Acorn production in the M.C. Blanchard Courtroom)

We first met Nick Tickle in 2014. Join us to tell the next chapter in his story.  Old Granny Possum is entertaining us with her slightly irregular version of "Snow White and Just the Two Very Tall Dwarves" when she's kidnapped by Bluebeard and his band of scurvy pirates! Thank goodness Nick Tickle has been hired to get her back. Can he outwit the kidnappers and save her or is she gone for good? He'll need any help he can get with this tough case - fortunately, Puss In Boots is ready to lend a paw and some lucky audience member will get the chance to help Nick question the pirates. Will Rumplestiltskin and Mrs. Stiltskin be of any help and if so, will Nick have to give them a baby? Why has the Fairy Godmother turned Cinderella into a cow? Can the evil Queen Cupcake convince the Magic Mirror that rapping is not an acceptable form of delivering royal proclamations? We can only hope.

The directors are looking for 10-20 young actors for this Acorn production.  

Shows are daytimes and audiences are very young.
