Dominion stage's commitment to diversity

Dominion Stage celebrates the diversity found in our audiences, our community, and on our stage.  Our diversity is evident in the shows we select, the makeup of our organization, and in our casting.  If we have failed to make this clear in the past, we sincerely apologize.

Audition Process

Auditions are usually two weeknights; pick one. Bring a resume and a headshot, but if you don't have these, we can take your picture and you can list experience on the audition form.  In the sign-in room, you'll fill out an audition form, and conflict calendar (dates you are not available for a rehearsal or performance).  There will be role descriptions, and "sides" or selected scenes from the script.  You'll be called in singly or in groups.  You may do a prepared monologue, or cold readings from the script, depending on what the director has requested. For musicals, you'll also be taught basic dance steps, and sing a song you've prepared in advance (please bring the sheet music).  Callbacks: Some actors will be "called back" for a second time, by invitation.  If you are not called back, this only means the director doesn't need to see you a second time. Casting: Actors who are cast will be notified by telephone.  Actors who are not cast will receive an email.  The date these calls and emails will be made will be clarified at the audition.

NOTE: If under 18, a parent or guardian must accompany you to the first audition.  Some shows may be limited to actors 18+.
