Auditions

Ragtime 2018

Each year September through June, Revival Theatre Company produces three full-scale musicals, classical and contemporary. Every summer, 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 and approach to contemporary and classic productions.
