Auditions for Into the Woods

Auditions have been postponed for the time being. Our auditions are very interactive, so we feel that video auditions wouldn't suit our needs. Stay tuned for more info about new dates!

Check back for dates for auditions for our fall production of Into the Woods, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by James Lapine, directed by Chris Simpson and music directed by Jean Maxon-Carpenter.

All actors receive a $20 per performance stipend for Into the Woods.

No roles available for anyone under 14 years old in this production.

Actors should prepare a 1-2 minute contemporary not overly dramatic monologue. Please prepare two 1-minute music selections from stylistically/harmonically modern musicals. One should be a ballad and one should be up tempo, preferably a patter song. Bring sheet music with you for both selections. Email Maggie Cady at to reserve a spot.

Audition slots are 15 minutes long. Please indicate in your email what day and time would work best for you.
