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.

THE FOX ON THE FAIRWAY Audition Information

  • THE FOX ON THE FAIRWAY by Ken Ludwig
  • AUDITIONS: December 12 & 13 @ 7:00pm
  • DIRECTOR: Gary BUM Baumgartner
  • A tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, The Fox On the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with... golf. There’s something magical about the sound of explosive laughter in a theater. Don’t miss the zany fun that is par for this course.
  • Each person will need to:
  • It is strongly advised that actors read the play before auditions to determine the character(s) they are interested in auditioning for. Scripts are available to check out at the theatre box office for several days with a $10 refundable deposit. Auditions will consist of readings from the script. Prepare a 1-2 minute monologue, not from the script. For any questions, call the director at 319-504-1048
