Discover the artist within

All GREAT actors are volunteers cast through open auditions. We are proud to cast both new and returning actors and encourage everyone of all abilities, experience, and backgrounds to audition and discover the artist within yourself! 
  • What to prepare for your audition varies slightly with each show. Details are posted on each show page within one month of auditions.
  • Link to sign up for an audition date and time will be live TWO WEEKS prior to auditions.
  • Auditions are at GREAT World Headquarters, Helgeson Learning Lab Theatre - 710 Sundial Drive, Waite Park (next to Crafts Direct).
  • Cast list is typically posted by Friday of the audition week on the show page.
  • If you have any questions about auditions or are interested in learning about being on crew for one of our shows please contact Dennis Whipple at or 320.258.2787.

"I think GREAT does an awesome job at volunteer appreciation. The appreciation dinner held last week was very nice!! So many others thought so as well. Giving the cast and crew a t-shirt now is nice as well."

"This was an amazing experience and I plan to recommend it to friends and I plan to tryout for more shows."

"The family vibe really came to fruition when we started tech week and I wouldn't trade that feeling for anything in the world."
