Auditions

2017 – 2018 Auditions

We’d love to tell you who’s going to be starring in our next performance, but we don’t even know. Maybe it will be you!

Our auditions are all “cold reads,” meaning that no preparation is necessary. If you feel inclined to get a jump on the competition, many scripts are available from the Toledo Public Library. Headshots and résumés are not required, however they are always welcome. We provide a brief information sheet that you will need to complete in order to audition. So what are you waiting for?!

If you know of anyone who might like to be added to The Village Players’ e-mail audition list please subscribe to our newsletters. Thank you very much.
