December 6 – 9

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!

Silent Sky is a new play based on the life and work of 20th century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt. If you’ve been scanning the skies for a script with wonderfully developed characters, this may be the audition for you. This play will have a relatively small cast, lending a lot of character work and focus on storytelling to the rehearsal process. Join us in telling the story of the women who redefined our understanding of the cosmos!

More information about Silent Sky auditions will be posted two weeks before auditions, and the initial audition will consist of reading for all auditionees. Monologues will be posted online, along with more information about how to prepare so you can be your most confident! 


Information Session: Thursday, November 30 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!
