Come out and audition with the Indiana Players!

No experience required!

Are you a seasoned actor looking for a new role to tackle?

Did you dabble in theater in school or years ago and miss the stage?

Have you always thought about acting but have never auditioned or performed? 

What To Expect:

Auditions for most Indiana Players' Mainstage shows are "Open Auditions" meaning, no scheduling or time slot is required. Just stop by the Philadelphia Street Playhouse any time auditions are being held. Unless otherwise stated, no preperation is necessary (i.e. monologues or headshots). You will be provided a selection of the script to look over and then read alone or with other auditionees or members of the production. It is simple, easy, and painless!

Some productions may have additional requirements due to the needs of the show. For example, age ranges may be given to either allow or restrict minors in a specific production or a specific role. Most musical productions will ask that you prepare a short vocal piece to sing at auditions and you may be asked to sing scales, do a warm-up, and/or learn a few measures of vocals from the production.

A Christmas Peter Pan is a play with music and a youth-friendly, Junior Script.

Auditioning actors will be asked to read from the script and should also prepare a short song (1-2 minutes) to be sung acapella at the open auditions.

There are a few dancing roles (fairies). Please bring jazz or ballet shoes if you would like to audition as a dancer. Dancers will still need to read from the script and prepare a short song.

About the Show: It's Christmas Eve and Tinker Bell summons Wendy, Michael and John to help her save Peter Pan and Santa Claus from Captain Hook and his terrible Pirates. Santa Claus has been frozen in the North Pole and can't deliver the presents on Christmas! With help from the audience, the Children help Peter Pan escape Captain Hook's clutches and we're off on an adventure! A Christmas Peter Pan takes its cue from JM Barrie's beloved classic story, "Peter Pan". The boy who refuses to grow up leads Tinkerbell, Wendy, Snow Fairies, Christmas Elves and Santa's Lost Toys on a lively fun romp through the North Pole and home again just in time for Christmas morning! Clever lyrics are set to familiar Christmas Carols that everyone, including the audience, gets to sing together.
