GENERAL AUDITION INFORMATION
NEAR WEST THEATRE GROUP AUDITIONS

Near West Theatre holds group auditions in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. No preparation or preregistration is required. Actors of all experience levels are led through multiple improvisational exercises providing every participant equal opportunity to create through word, movement and song. Auditions focus on the creative process, not the product; on working as an ensemble, not solo. After this first level audition, callbacks will focus on individual roles/songs and working from the script.

  • No experience or preregistration necessary. No prepared material needed.
  • A relaxed, playful and friendly atmosphere.
  • Wear comfortable clothing & shoes for dancing so you can move easily.
  • Group audition process. Actors are led through multiple improvisational exercises including acting, movement and singing.
