About the audition process and Stage Right Productions:
Stage Right Productions is a non-profit theater production company that has been providing community theater in the Sacramento area since 2008. Our mission is to provide polished and engaging performances that excite our audiences and our actors. We believe that our work as a theater helps to build community onstage and off. Stage Right Productions welcomes all performers who share our vision.
- All auditioning actors are asked to bring a picture/head shot with their name written on the back and a resume (if you have one). Please highlight any choral/chorus work you have participated in.
- All auditioning actors will be asked to move to a short choreographed piece. Please wear clothing that will make you comfortable (no sandals or flip flops). If auditioning for Leisl please plan to wear character dance shoes.
- All auditioning actors will be taught a portion of a song from the show and given an opportunity to sing. Additionally, sides from the show will be used. For those children who are not proficient readers, improvisation will be used.
- All cast members will be asked to provide their own shoes, socks, undergarments and pants that our costume committee assigns.
- A detailed rehearsal schedule is listed above and hard copies will be available at the auditions. Every auditioning actor will be asked to provide any conflicts on the audition registration form. Every effort is made to work as team to allow for “some conflicts” however multiple conflicts not listed at registration may result in recasting of the role.
- All cast members or their families will be asked to donate one 3-hour shift at our Fireworks Booth (June 27-July 4th) on Sunset/San Juan in Fair Oaks. Must be 18 years or older to work in the booth. If a cast member (or their family) is unable to donate their time they may hire one of our approved “financially challenged” college students for a fee of $35.00 to cover this obligation. * This fundraiser is one of three yearly events at Stage Right Productions and is a key factor in keeping our program fiscally sound and sustainable from year to year.
