All auditions are held at the Manatee Performing Arts Center, 502 Third Avenue West in downtown Bradenton unless otherwise announced. Actors audition in the order they arrive. Those auditioning for the musicals should prepare a song in their key and be ready for any movement portion of the audition that the director may require. Anyone being called back will be notified that night of callback time and date.  Not being called back does NOT mean that you are not being considered for a role.
These are non-paid volunteer roles in all shows.


Please note that by auditioning, you are obligating yourself to a considerable rehearsal and performance process. Please be certain that you are willing and able to make this commitment.
