AUDITION FOR REVIVAL THEATRE COMPANY
Each year over an eight-month period, Revival Theatre Company produces three full-scale musicals, classical and contemporary. Every fall, we hold open auditions for performers. We seek strong actors who sing and dance well. We welcome and encourage all types and ethnicities, who are at least 18 years old, as well as kids as young as 8, depending on the show.
We strive to seek a balance between professional performers, emerging young artists, and local Cedar Rapids talent for our unique mix of contemporary and classic productions.
Revival Theatre Company’s Two Year Policy Regarding Casting: Once an actor is cast in one of the past season’s shows, RTC does not require the actor to audition for RTC again for two years. Whether an actor has or hasn’t been active with us within the full two years, we ask that the actor audition. RTC actors from the previous season interested in being considered for the new season’s shows should contact Artistic Director Brian Glick before the last night of current fall auditions to tell him that you wish to be considered. Casting is not guaranteed. If an actor wishes to be considered for a role that’s very different from what that actor has personified in the past for RTC, then that actor is more than welcome to audition.
This casting policy applies to actors 18 years and older. Any actor younger than 18 years old must audition every year if roles in the new season are available.
