Theatre Frisco Audition Process
As a rule of thumb, Theatre Frisco uses what we call"the 6 week formula” for scheduling auditions and rehearsals. Starting with the date that the show opens, we count back 6 weeks for the start of rehearsals, then schedule auditions 6 weeks before the first rehearsal, and post the audition notice 6 weeks before auditions.
The 6 Week Formula
* Can vary from 5-7 weeks depending on the show and director.
Audition Notices are posted below next to the show description, on auditions.breaklegs.com, dallastheatrejournal.com/auditionsjobs, and Theatre Frisco's Facebook page, as well as numerous other local theatrical Facebook pages. There is also an actor’s email list that receives notices directly.
Auditions are by appointment only, and typically held in the Black Box Theater at the Frisco Discovery Center, our regular performance space.
To request an appointment, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Auditions are always open to everyone, we encourage people of all colors and identities to audition, and are open to nontraditional casting. Theatre Frisco rarely precast any roles, if that occurs the decision will been made before the audition notice goes out, and that information will be included in the audition notice.
All Theatre Frisco production members; cast, running crew, band, and production team, are paid a stipend.
A Musical by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Andi Allen | Music Direction by Cody Dry
Stephen Sondheim has been the leading composer of musical theatre for the past fifty years. His work is timeless. From the streets of ancient Rome, through nineteenth-century Japan and turn-of-the-century Sweden, to the high-rise apartments of 1970 Manhattan, his songs represent a definitive time and place, and yet move beyond their particular settings to speak to us all. Now, with this award-winning revue of his earlier work, some of the most lush, unforgettable songs from this musical theatre master are presented in one magical evening. Featuring music from Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Anyone Can Whistle and Pacific Overtures, not to mention the classics written with musical theatre giants, Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne and Richard Rodgers, this dazzling array of some of Sondheim's best-known songs demonstrates his masterful craft and astounding creativity.

Don is a coach who believes that winning is what is most important in baseball, and he is all about the game. Michael is his assistant coach, a businessman who believes that kids should have fun when they play baseball. These conflicting personalities instantly clash. Don's kid is the star pitcher of the team, and Michael's kid can barely remember to keep his shoelaces tied. In addition, there are extramarital affairs going on (though the truth of them is well-hidden), and Michael's job is not all that it seems.
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz | Book by Roger O. Hirson
Directed and Choreographed by Linda Kay Leonard
With an infectiously unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz, Pippin is the story of one young man's journey to be extraordinary. Winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, this updated circus-inspired version of Pippin continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world. Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.

Formerly known as The Dixie Swim Club, this is a comic and poignant story of five Southern women whose friendship began many years ago on their college swim team. Every August, the ladies set aside a long weekend to recharge their relationships and friendships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage, the "Sweet Delilah" on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The story focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years.
