Interested in auditioning for Pride and Prejudice? We'd LOVE to have you! We welcome ALL skill levels! Below are character descriptions. This cast calls for ages 15 and older (no exceptions). Please bring your best British accent. While you don't have to sound just like the Queen herself, we also don't want Larry the Cable Guy when in character. This is a literary classic and we want to do it justice!
Auditions will consist of cold readings, pairing with another actor, and possible dance. Please note, this is not a musical so extensive dance is not required. There is a ballroom dance scene so that would be the extent of any dancing.
IMPORTANT: If you have never auditioned before, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain! You will love it! We are a COMMUNITY THEATRE and our emphasis is on learning! Just come with enthusiasm, a desire to learn and you're in for an amazing experience!
If you have a headshot please bring it. But it's not required. Download, complete and bring these audition forms.

Thursday, May 16, 7PM - 9PM
Sunday, May 19, 2PM - 4PM
Auditions will be at the Conservatory (11363 San Jose Blvd., Bldg. 200)
