January 10 – 13, 2024

Sign up for your time slot two weeks before auditions!

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for a GREAT show! 

If you’ve auditioned for us before, welcome back! If this is your first time auditioning at GREAT, we’re thrilled to have you! We are in our 26th season and are excited to add new people, new talent, and new voices to our company as well as welcome returning volunteers to our stages! Whether you’re a seasoned performer or you’ve never been on stage before, we encourage you to audition!

The type of crowd-pleaser that gets audiences out of their seats, Footloose is a familiar musical with a well-known story and famous songs. Energetic choreography propels this musical forward, but there are roles for all levels of mobility! Pick your favorite character role, or cut a rug in the ensemble! Performers ages 16+, it’s time to cut loose! 

More information about Footloose auditions will be posted two weeks before auditions, and the initial audition will consist of singing, dancing, and reading for all auditionees. Vocal selections, monologues, and a choreo combination will be posted online, along with more information about how to prepare so you can be your most confident! 


Information Session: Wednesday, December 20 at 7:00p on Zoom

Auditions are nerve-wracking whether it’s your first or seventy-sixth, so join us for an optional Zoom meeting on DATE to ask questions and learn about this specific production and audition process from the creative team. Meet the director, choreographer, and music director and hear about the vision of this show and how to best prepare. Our hope is the info session with ease some of the unknowns so you walk into auditions feeling comfortable and confident!
