Thank you!

1) USE THE PROVIDED LINKS TO REVIEW THE PARTS AVAILABLE FOR EACH SHOW
You don’t have to audition for any particular part but it may help you decide which one of the director selected sides to use for a general audition. It will also help you to list any specific parts on your audition form.

2) FILL OUT YOUR AUDITION FORM AND SUBMIT NO LATER THAN 11:59 P.M. April 25th, 2021

  • Be as complete as possible.
  • Pay attention to show dates and assume a minimum of five weeks of rehearsals prior to the first performance date of each show to determine any schedule conflicts you may have.
  • After filling out the form: Select the “Send me a copy of my responses” at the bottom of the form so you can edit your form later if needed. Don’t delete the email you get after submitting! We cannot retrieve your online audition form link for you.

3) SUBMIT A VIDEO AUDITION

  • DO NOT SEND VIDEO FILES. SEND PRIVATE LINKS FROM WHICH WE CAN WATCH YOUR VIDEO.
    If you wish to use another platform other than YouTube then you must be able to make your video audition unlisted AND be able to send a link to us to view it. Audition materials are subject to copyright. MARK UNLISTED and ONLY VIEW-ABLE to those with your LINK. Send the LINK not the actual video.
    • Do not send/share app video links (such as twitter, tiktok or snapchat to Oak Grove folks). We won’t view them.
      We will not accept mailed DVD/USB materials.
  • Fill out and send your Online Audition Form (Link in step 2 above). We must have both or your video audition will not be considered.
  • Pick 1 to 3 sides (FOUND BELOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS) to read and/or sing for your video. If your choices have more than one person then grab some friends. They don’t have to be on camera and can just read-in the other parts.
  • VIDEO LENGTH: As short as possible.
  • You can mix a musical audition with a play side OR just do 1 to 3 play sides.
  • Record your video. Make sure you are well lit AND in focus AND we can clearly hear you. PROJECT!
  • Upload your video to your YouTube OR link sharing capable site.
  • Email us at auditions@oakgrovetheater.org with the subject line: “Audition Video LinK”
    • In the body of your email include:
      • The EXACT name, phone, and email you used to fill out the online audition form in step 2 above.
      • The link to your audition video
      • A resume is not required. We are a community theater! You may attach a PDF version if you like.. You still have to fill out and submit an audition form (in step 2 above).

  • We are a small volunteer organization and so we are unable to provide technical assistance for the creation, upload or sending of your video link. There are resources available on the internet and YouTube has extensive help files on how to upload videos, mark them unlisted, and send private links when using different devices.
  • One more time…DO NOT SEND US ACTUAL VIDEO FILES. They will be rejected by our email server.

AUDITION SIDES WILL REMAIN ON THIS PAGE FOR A SHORT TIME AFTER THE AUDITION DEADLINE TO ALLOW THOSE WHO ALREADY SUBMITTED FORMS (STEP 2) BEFORE THE DEADLINE TO OBTAIN MATERIAL FOR THEIR AUDITION VIDEOS.
EMAIL VIDEO LINKS NO LATER THAN 24 HOURS AFTER THE DEADLINE AND ONLY IF YOU GOT YOUR STEP 2 FORM IN BEFORE THE DEADLINE.

PICK A SIDE, ANY SIDES: HERE ARE THE PLAY AND MUSICAL DIRECTOR SELECTED MATERIALS. USE A MAXIMUM OF 3 FOR YOUR VIDEO AUDITION. FOR THE MUSICAL – MIX A SPOKEN SIDE WITH YOUR MUSICAL PORTIONS.

  • There are not sides for every character. Pick sides that best showcase you and list on your audition form (step 2 above) which character(s) you prefer. Sides have areas marked out/crossed out. Do not use those sections.
