Audition Process

We are committed to diverse, inclusive casting. We invite and celebrate all performers of varying ages, sex, ethnicities, disabilities, race, national origin, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

Auditions will consist of cold readings. Sides will be provided at auditions. Additionally, we may ask you to sing a bar of a simple song. We ask you to familiarize yourself with the script beforehand. Please bring a current headshot with you to auditions. If you don’t have one, we are happy to take a photo for you for the casting team.
If callbacks are needed, they will take place at Theater on the Run on June 22, at 10am. If callbacks are not necessary, that date will be used for the first readthrough.

Description of the Show

When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
