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.

Evan Goldman, through his parents’ divorce, finds himself transported from fast-paced New York City to a small mid-western town. With an unforgettable rock score by a Tony-Award winning composer, the story is full of hard reality, poignant moments, laughter, and teenage energy. 13 is a hilarious, high-energy musical for all ages about discovering that cool is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect. Rated PG-13 “…shiny and brash new musical.” - NY Times radioactive energy that makes young teenagers so appealing." – NY Times "...has heart and charm." – Variety "...impressively contemporary...." – LA Times
