Casting Call!

McKinley Annie

Last year, the McKinley Theatre Company saw its highest ever turnout for auditions. It is exciting that our program has attracted so many talented young performers, and we love that the arts are thriving at McKinley!

However, when faced with such a large cast size, there are certain aspects that need to be taken into consideration. Our priority is to give all participating performers the best experience possible, allowing them to learn a few things, be safe, and have fun.

With that in mind, all parts will be auditioned for (including the ensemble/chorus).  

After filling out your Audition Registration Form, you will be given an audition time slot. Forms are due Friday, October 16th Late Registration Forms and “walk-in” auditions will not be accepted.

McKinley Theatre Program is put on entirely by volunteers. If your child is given a role in this year’s production, we count on your enthusiastic support along with your active participation. Volunteer Opportunities are listed on the website and the registration form.

AUDITIONS WILL BE HELD

Monday, October 19th

by appointment only

 

CALL BACKS

Tuesday, October 20th

(If needed, for lead roles)

You MUST complete the Audition Registration Form* by Friday, October 16th
