What is Required?

Filling out our Google form is required for your audition; watch this space in early July to find that form to sign up! After choosing an hour time slot, you will be assigned to a 20-minute time slot within that hour, along with 3 or 4 other auditioners in that same time slot, but you will be called individually to audition. An email confirmation will be sent by early August.

Resume and Headshot

Please list experience in theatre, music, dance, and education on a one-page separate form, and bring a printed copy with a headshot or photo of yourself to give to the directors when you are called into your audition.

Please make yourself available for callbacks on Sunday, August 18th – time to be determined. If you are called back, you will learn dance steps, sing excerpts from the show and possibly read scenes from the script if you are called back for featured roles. Callbacks will be announced online or via group email after 6 pm on Saturday, August 19. Casting decisions will be made during the week following auditions, and you will be contacted sometime that week.

Audition/Rehearsal Location

Auditions are at the Backstage Collaborative Warehouse: 720 East Vine Dr, Fort Collins, CO 80524. Rehearsals are also there; the general schedule is Monday - Thursday, 6:30 to 9:30, starting Sept. 5, with a cast meeting read-through. A specific schedule will be created after the show is cast; the days you need to be there will be based on your role. If required, a weekend rehearsal may be added, and a "Sitz Probe" rehearsal with the Orchestra will be on a Saturday in early November.

Musical Audition:

For your musical audition, please prepare ONE song, 16-32 bars in length (30 seconds), in the show's style.

Please bring sheet music in the appropriate key with cuts marked. An accompanist is provided; please do not bring CD tracks or a cappella. Songs from the show are not required but acceptable. Some singers may be asked to demonstrate their vocal range through basic vocal exercises.

Speaking audition:
It would be best to prepare a one-minute or less comedic or contemporary monologue from a published play. Show character and strong choices with your monologue piece.

Bring clothing and shoes for movement if you are asked to come for call-backs

For questions about the audition process and roles, please get in touch with Karen Christophersen at

Background Checks
Fort Collins Children’s Theatre (FCCT) has begun implementing a background check policy for all volunteers, cast, and staff 18 years of age and older, effective May 1, 2019.

If you are cast, we will require a background check.

Why did we decide to do this?
-For the safety of children entrusted to our organization during their time with us.
-To provide a way for FCCT to ensure we hire employees and obtain volunteers with children’s best interests in mind.
-To abide by guidelines that are already in place at theatre companies all over the country.

We are looking for only a few key things when we run your background check:

-Have you been convicted of any felonies relating to weapons or harming others?
-Have you been charged with any crime related to inappropriate behavior with children?
