Auditions: What To Expect

Our auditions are usually held at CWCT 8-10 weeks before the show’s performance dates. Rehearsals typically run 6-8 weeks and about 3-5 nights per week, determined by the role in the performance.

Prior to an audition, actors must:
  1. Set up an appointment by calling us at 715-842-4416 or emailing us at
  2. Complete the audition form.
During the audition, we ask actors to:
  1. Sing a 1-minute song (something in the style of the show).
  2. Read from the script and/or do improvisation.
  3. Learn a short dance segment. (Occasionally, we will ask actors to come prepared with a dance piece.)
We usually post casting results within one week of the final audition date by:
  1. Updating our status on the CWCT Facebook page.
  2. Email a cast list to all actors who auditioned.

Check out the opportunities to audition under Upcoming Auditions.
