BRT will hold auditions for the church chorus to be played by community members in The Christians. Community members will rehearse during evening and weekend rehearsals alongside the professionals, then perform with them on the BRT stage!

Who do we want?

Experience is not necessary, but this is a professional theatre production and will require a substantial time commitment and dedication to the process. Sincere curiosity about the work, willingness to take on the multiple responsibilities of a cast member, ability to carry a tune, and positive energy are the only requirements.

Roles are available for actors ages 7-90.

What happens at the audition?

You will be asked to fill out an audition form. Please bring your calendar, as you will be required to complete a calendar of any potential conflicts during the rehearsal and performance period. You may want to plan to arrive early for your audition in order to complete the necessary paperwork.

You will be asked to sing a short selection of a favorite song in the audition room. Don’t worry about the “right” or “wrong” way to perform; the audition is simply the staff’s chance to get to know who you are and what you might bring to this production.
