At The School of Performing Arts we have several ‘auditioned’ workshops and productions. Auditioning is a learned skill; our auditions at SPA are always in a friendly, warm and professional environment. We also have several classes/workshops within our Studio Series in which we help the children learn the art of auditioning. Casting in MainStage Musicals: In casting our MainStage Musicals, it is part of our mission to give our students as professional an experience as possible, while never losing sight of the love for the Art of Musical Theatre! We often times hold callback auditions for our leading roles within our MainStage musicals, allowing those auditioning an opportunity to work/read with other actors also called back for particular roles. Just because you do not receive a ‘callback’ does not mean you’ve not been cast – be sure to check the cast list. We always post online at Each MainStage musical audition will have its own set of audition requirements, as far as what to prepare for each audition. We are always here to offer guidance and help you prepare for any audition! If your child is ever unavailable for a particular audition, please contact our Theatre Dept. regarding how to submit a video audition. Casting in our Studio Series: We also have many exciting opportunities, which do not include an audition – this is the beauty of our Studio Series. We talk about the importance and art of auditioning, while helping find your child the perfect role to play within the show. We also have several audition workshops throughout the year. Auditioning and Casting at SPA is never an easy task and can seem at times unfair to anyone not getting the role he or she may want the most, but what that does is give the experience – the true experience of casting. We strive to always cast the best person for each and every role, while always welcoming new faces and performers to our SPA family! Please know that we work very hard making sure we feel we’ve cast the right actor for each and every role within the ensemble – looking to the actor that is suited best for each and every role. We believe this should be so in any casting position – casting someone who is most prepared and experienced in all angles of musical theatre, including: confidence, preparedness, performance, acting/voice/dance technique, tone color, delivery, attitude, presence, look and more. Of course, we recognize the art of casting is always subjective, as any artistic and directing team may have varying opinions. We sincerely hope your child will come to audition for all future productions at SPA! Please contact our Theatre Department Director with any questions about casting at any time.
