As any Costco shopper will tell you, sometimes good things come in big packages.
In this case, that big package is access to a unified audition process with three different theatre companies: Theatre B, FMCT, and Tin Roof Theatre. The auditions for seven different shows with the three companies will be conducted over the course of two days, June 22 and 23, at The Stage at Island Park. Plus, representatives from FMCT and Theatre B will hold an audition workshop on June 16 to help actors hone their skills before the audition dates.
Full release and further information below. A signup is available at thestageatislandpark.org.
The Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre, Theatre B and Tin Roof Theatre have joined together to hold auditions for all the shows in the first half of the 2014-2015 Season. Auditioners will come to one audition and be seen by directors for multiple shows. When initial auditions are completed, the companies will hold staggered callbacks.
Auditions will be held June 22nd & 23rd at The Stage at Island Park, with staggered callbacks on June 23rd and 24th. There will be an audition workshop held on Monday, June 16th from 7-9 pm at The Stage at Island Park, led by Brad Delzer and Scott M. Brusven.
“Having a unified audition is more convenient for the actors involved – and it’s more humane,” says Theatre B Executive Director Carrie Wintersteen. “It also opens opportunities for the artists that people may not have seen on their own. For the companies involved, working together on auditions is already a positive experience that will hopefully lead to unexpected opportunities.”

Each auditioner will be required to prepare a two minute audition. During that audition time, each auditioner may choose to present any combination of the following during their audition time, based on which show types they wish to be considered for:
1) one monologue (plays)
2) two contrasting monologues (plays)
3) one monologue and a song (plays and or musicals)
4) two contrasting songs (plays and or musicals)
5) two songs and a short monologue (plays and or musicals)
Please note that due to time constraints each auditioner will be asked to stop at the two-minute mark. It is recommended that these be memorized. An accompanist will be provided (please do not sing from “Frozen”).
