Want to be on stage at an Ignite! production? Here’s information on our upcoming auditions. Ignite auditions usually consist of “cold readings” from the script. While it is always good to be familiar with the script/show prior to auditions but is not a requirement for casting. Please come dressed in appropriate attire for movement and be willing to work with others.

Mark your calendars for this double audition. Director Troy Heppner will be looking to fill 8 roles in Elizabeth Elwood’s Casting for Murder (performing May 5-21). Director Brian Cheney will be looking for a variety of actors to play multiple roles in a reading stage production of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing (performing April 21-23).
