It may seem surprising to some, but Tri-Cities (and the surrounding area) has a thriving theater arts community! There are several different local companies producing incredible shows through out the year. A lot of people also don't know that pretty much anyone can audition for these shoes! Sure it helps to have some past theater experience, but actors of all levels, ages, ethnicities, male and female are all welcome and encouraged to audition!

Currently, Mid-Columbia Musical Theater (MCMT), and The Gesa Powerhouse Theatre in Walla Walla have upcoming auditions. Check below for details, and follow The Richland Players (who just announced their 2018-2019 season), The Rude Mechanicals (our Tri-Cities Shakespeare company), and Mid-Columbia Mastersingers (who produce choral productions year round) to keep up with more auditions in the future. Let your inner star shine!

West Side Story Auditions- Calling all Jets and Sharks!  Please join MCMT Saturday February 17 at 4:30 pm at the Tri-City Academy of Ballet for auditions for this summer's production of West Side Story. Persons auditioning will be required to sing, dance, and read from the script. Wear clothes and shoes that are comfortable to move in.

Please prepare 32 bars (or about 1 minute) of a musical theatre song that shows off range and musicality. It can be from the show. An accompanist will be provided so bring sheet music. No karaoke tapes.

Bring your sheet music, audition form, and water and snacks. Callbacks will be held Sunday the 18th.
