Auditions

The Cedar Falls Community Theatre holds open auditions 4-5 times per year. The audition process is usually pretty loose and informal. Actors auditioning do not need to bring a prepared monologue. The actors will read from the script used in the show. At auditions, actors will fill out an audition form with basic information that includes education, acting background, show experience and any arts, acting, dance or musical training. Audition dates are set by the director and the theatre for each show about four months before performance is to begin. Actual auditions are usually held about eight weeks before opening night of that particular show. Check the blog on the home page on a regular basis for information about shows coming up, including information about auditions.

With stories entitled The Lodger, Sabotage and The 39 Steps, Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is a triple feature. It comes complete with vintage commercials that recreate a daring train chase, a serial killer's ominous presence, and a devastating explosion through the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring. This spooky, exciting piece is perfect for a Halloween week visit to the theatre. Join us to experience radio in its heyday. “Nerve-shattering…simply magnificent.” – Atlanta Journal Constitution

Pre-show and intermission music: 1940 to 1946. The audience can step back into the 1940s: old jazz crackled over the speakers as a dimly lit, art-deco styled stage set the scene for a play based on the golden age of radio. 2. The script demands that the actors play multiple characters. 3. The script demands some serious voice acting to make it all work. Every actor must be able to present several distinct voices.
