Auditions are open to everyone and are held at the Ashtabula Arts Center. You do not need prior theater experience to try out for a show. If you are not cast in an on-stage role, please consider volunteering on the backstage crew — an essential part of every show’s production team. There is no cost to audition for or take part in a G.B. or Straw Hat show. Please direct audition questions to Kimberly Godfrey, Director of Theater & Music, at (440) 964-3396.

Please bring a list of calendar conflicts for the director of the show you’re trying out for. Commitment is important, and the success of a production relies heavily on everyone from leads to ensemble being responsible and consistent in showing up for rehearsals.
