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.

  • Ann Richards, former governor of Texas, rose to national prominence at the 1988 Democratic National Convention. Her best-known quote from this convention is about George H.W. Bush: “Poor, George. He can’t help it. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth.” This made headlines, and Ann Richards was suggested as a future candidate for the first woman president of the United States. When she became governor of Texas in 1991, it seemed as if nothing could stop her, but George W. Bush managed a successful challenge to her bid for reelection in 1995. Though no longer Texas governor, Richards continued her active political life up until her death in 2006. At her death, another friend said this of Governor Richards, “She was a legendary campfire cook, a beautiful ballroom dancer, she loved movies, was a bossy momma, just as good at at-the-moment quips as at telling great stories, a reluctant hunter, a great laugher, fine canoeist, former drunk, and first woman governor of Texas to get there on her own credentials.”
