2022 Half-Season Auditions and Tech Interviews 

     
 
 
Hendersonville Theatre is looking for local actors, singers, dancers and those interested in working behind the scenes!
All roles at HT are open to anyone over 16 in the community!
 
No experience is necessary to audition/interview. Here are a few tips to help you understand our audition process:
 
Auditions and Interviews (for those interested in working behind the scenes) are held over two days, and you may choose either day to audition. Please sign up for a time slot at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0E48A4AA2DA3FB6-20221.
 
If you are unable to sign up ahead of time, we will work you in between appointments, but you may be a longer wait time.
 
Got a monologue and a song? Great! But if you don’t, no worries. We will provide a selection of short scenes for you to choose from and a simple song to sing (like Happy Birthday).
 
If you have a song, please prepare 16 bars of music and bring your sheet music to the audition in the key in which you will be singing. We will provide an accompanist. No one may sing along to a CD or other recording.
 
Interested in working behind the scenes? Just fill out the audition form with your relevant theatre experience and come in and meet the team!
