Local Children’s Auditions

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for Actors Theatre of Louisville.  

Actors Theatre of Louisville is Holding Auditions for Children on May 17th, 2014

Actors Theatre of Louisville will hold auditions for non-union children (ages 6 – 13) on Saturday, May 17, 2014, in the fifth-floor rehearsal hall of Actors Theatre’s administration building 315 W. Market St.

The auditions are for introductory purposes and for roles in the annual holiday productions of Dracula and A Christmas Carol. All participants must prepare a short memorized monologue or poem, a short true-life story, and an age appropriate joke.  Please keep the length of time for all three pieces combined to under 3 minutes. Please bring a recent snapshot or photograph with child’s name, height and weight on the back.

Auditions are by appointment, which can be scheduled only after May 5 by emailing auditions@actorstheatre.org. In the email please provide the name, age and gender of your child and provide a parental/guardian email and a cell phone. Audition space is limited. Appointments will be scheduled on a first-come basis. No appointments will be made prior to May 5, 2014.

Dracula starts rehearsal on Aug. 14, opens Sept. 12 and closes Oct. 31. Two girls, size small, are double cast in the role of the Undead Child. A Christmas Carol begins rehearsal on Oct. 29, opens Nov. 28 and closes Dec. 23. Roles are available for both boys and girls, ages 6-13. A full rehearsal and performance schedule will be available for both productions on the day of the audition.

Please send resumes to auditions@actorstheatre.org or to Actors Theatre of Louisville, Attention: Casting Department.  Resumes are reviewed and filed according to experience. Resume files are updated every two years. Actors Theatre of Louisville is committed to Non-traditional Casting and encourages actors of all backgrounds to audition.


Due to our rigorous production schedule and the volume of requests for auditions each year, we are unable to accommodate people at times other than scheduled auditions dates. General auditions are used for introductory purposes only and do not usually result in direct casting.
