Audition Information

At a Glance tenor   

As we move forward during the age of pandemic, we have adjusted our audition policies.These policies are designed to protect you, our most valuable resource. They may seem unnecessary to some and essential to others but please understand, we are family and we want to protect our own. These policies are the way to do that.

Please look at the following bullet points to see how the process has changed:

  • To enter the building, you will need to be masked. 
  • Mask wearing is required the entire time that you are in the playhouse with the exception of your time on stage.
  • Please wash your hands or use the provided hand sanitizer as soon as you can after you enter the building.
  • We haven't made a decision on temperature checks yet but that might be part of our protocol as well.
  • Always apply the 6ft distancing rule when attending auditions. We will consider this as part of our onstage audition guidelines as well. 
  • You will be asked to attend only one night of auditions. You will need to confirm the night you wish to attend so that we can contain crowd size. More details on this will be published prior to each audition.
  • We will post (and email at your request) a fillable PDF audition form. Please fill it out online and submit it prior to your arrival the night of auditions. Details will follow.
  • Once the audition is over, we ask that you exit the building without congregating in the aisles, the lobby or immediately outside the front doors. 

Our season schedule contains the audition and performance dates for our six mainstage shows.  We will post more details at least two weeks in advance of each audition.

Unless otherwise specified, auditions are as follows:

  •  Auditions are on a Sunday and Monday at 7:00pm.  The doors will open at 6:30.
  • Auditioners only need to attend one audition.  Wear comfortable clothing and shoes.  No prior experience or resume is required.
  • Before you arrive, please fill out an audition form and submit it online including contact information, prior experience (if any), expected rehearsal conflicts, and desired roles.
  • A prepared piece is not required. 
  • After the two nights of auditions, callbacks will usually not be necessary.
  • Every auditioner will be notified by phone of their result, before the full cast list is announced publicly.
  • Surfside does not precast roles....ever.

Auditions will consist of:

Musicals & Non-Musicals          

Cold readings from the script

Musicals Only                          

Each auditioneer will be taught a 30 second selection of music from the show.

  • Grace Hoylard – (Playing 30s - 40s) Owner of the diner. She is pretty in a fading, hard-bitten way. She has a passionate side to her nature, loving a good fight and the attentions of a good man.
  • Elma Duckworth – (Playing 16 - 19) An intelligent, but naive and impressionable high school girl. She is Grace's waitress.
  • Will Masters – (Playing 50s) The local sheriff. Brusque in manner, but goodhearted and a staunch Christian, described as a "deacon of his church". A highly "moral" man in the general sense of the word.
  • Dr. Gerald Lyman  (Playing 40 - 50) – A college philosophy professor who is articulate and charming but cannot hold a position, partially due to his resistance to any kind of authority, and partially due to his unfortunate taste for young women. He also has an obvious drinking problem.
  • Cherie –  (Playing 20s) A pretty young woman who comes from a difficult "hill folk" background, and has left her innocence far behind. She is an aspiring nightclub singer, but has never worked in any establishment above the level of "cheap dive".
  • Bo Decker (Plaaying 20s) – A brash young cowboy with boorish manners that hide a naivete almost as profound as Elma's. He has convinced himself that Cherie will be his bride, though Cherie wants nothing to do with him.
  • Virgil Blessing (Playing 50s - 60s))– An older, wiser cowboy who has become a father figure to Bo (who was orphaned at the age of 10) as well as Bo's head ranch hand.
  • Carl – (Playing 40s - 50s) The bus driver, who has an ongoing "just passing through" relationship with Grace. As referenced repeatedly, this is purely sexual in nature.
