General Information about Audition Process at BATS

Auditions are meant to be fun! And community theatre is meant to be fun also.

The last thing we want is for people to be “stressed” over what’s to come. In most cases you’ll find that our auditions are open and easy, the directors are available for questions and your friends can be there to support you.

Above and beyond anything, all you need is confidence and the ability to “give it a go”. Will you always get the part? No, but you will always learn and will *most Likely* have a great time as well!

Where ever possible it’s always a good idea to have read the play beforehand, and that’s most times we hold a play-reading the week before. This is the best time to get ‘the feel for it’, to find out if it’s something you’d like to audition for and participate in.

Once you get started, commitment is key. For this reason directors will let you know up front what the rehearsal schedule will be and when you will need to be available. Bring your diary!

Finally, we rarely ask for pre-prepared monologues so there’s no need to spend weeks learning Shakespeare before an audition (unless that’s the kind of strange thing you’re into!). The most important things our directors look for is the willingness to give it a go, the willingness to follow directions and the willingness to BE ON TIME. Experience can be developed with time… everyone has to start some where.
