General Audition Information
Interested in performing on stage with Way Way Off-Broadway? Auditions are held prior to each show that WWOB produces, and is open for anyone to try out. Previous performing experience is not required, all we ask is that you are willing to dedicate the considerable time and effort it takes for rehearsals and performances, so that we can put on the very best show that we can. At your audition, you may sing a song of your choosing (please bring a CD or USB accompaniment track), or sing music that we will provide. Either way, make sure you bring your great personality and energy! DISCLAIMER: With so many talented people auditioning for our shows, our Production Teams are faced with the difficult task of casting a show with the right people. Regardless of any previous conversations with, or comments from, members of the Production Team, everyone must participate in the audition process, and no one is assigned a role until auditions are complete. Occasionally, certain roles or productions will be assigned prior to or without holding open auditions; however, this will not occur unless specifically announced by WWOB.
