Audition Opportunities Castaways Repertory Theatre is a community theatre; as such there is no pay involved. Both seasoned actors and first timers are encouraged to audition.AUDITION INFORMATIONWe do color-, gender-, and age-blind casting. The actor’s abilities are more important than their race, gender, and age for every role in the show. The only exception is when children are required or where historical accuracy or traditional roles outweigh blind casting.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~FOR PRING 2018 MAINSTAGE* PRODUCTION OF:
