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

6 Weeks*

* Can vary from 5-7 weeks depending on the show and director.

Audition Notice

Audition Notices are posted below next to the show description, on dfwauditions.com, John Garcia’s The Column, 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 auditionstheatrefrisco@gmail.com. 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.

Book And Lyrics by Robert L. Freedman | Music and Lyrics by Steven Lutvak
Directed by Neale Whitmore | Music Direction by M. Shane Hurst

When the low-born Monty Navarro finds out that he's eighth in line for an earldom in the lofty D'Ysquith family, he figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight and sets off down a far more ghoulish path. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn't the only thing on Monty's mind.... 


This murderous romp is filled with unforgettable music, non-stop laughs and a one scene-stealing role for the actor playing all eight of the doomed heirs who meet their ends in the most creative and side-splitting ways. Winner of Four Tony Awards, 7 Drama Desk Awards, 4 Outer Critics Circle Awards, and the Drama League Award for Best Musical.

This Broadway hit features all the best songs for women from such immortal musicals as Mame, Hello Dolly! and La Cage Aux Folles, all by the legendary composer, Jerry Herman. These shows are home to some of the most popular, most-often performed and most successful musical heroines of all time. You will be humming, if not singing, along with these familiar songs, as the elegant performance features some of DFW's favorite leading ladies. A wonderful tribute to the great (and Theatre Frisco's Executive Producer, Howard Korn's childhood friend) Jerry Herman.

Theatre Frisco is bringing back this audience favorite.

Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn't mean his family isn't still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he's been offered his dream job...in Seattle.  Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely—and single—Caitlin O'Hare as bait...we won't give the ending away here.

Welcome to the Renaissance and this outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce. Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as "The Bard." When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world's very first musical! Something Rotten features large song and dance numbers, and a wacky cast of over-the-top characters, each given his or her own special moment in the show to shine. 

Written by Bernard Slade
Directed by John Wilkerson

New Jersey accountant George Peters and Oakland housewife Doris meet at a Northern California inn in February 1951. They have an affair, and agree to meet once a year, despite the fact both are married to others and have six children between them.

Over the course of the next 24 years, they develop an emotional intimacy deeper than what one would expect to find between two people meeting for a clandestine relationship just once a year. During the time they spend with each other, they discuss the births, deaths, and marital problems each is experiencing at home, while they adapt themselves to the social changes affecting their lives.
