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 to 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.


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.


Prepare 16 - 24 bars (one verse and a chorus) of a song in musical theatre style (unless otherwise indicated). Bring sheet music or a CD and CD player for accompaniment. If you use a .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.
