Upcoming Auditions

We would love for you to be a part of an upcoming show at BLT! We welcome seasoned actors to first-timers. While we cannot guarantee everyone a role in every show, we can guarantee you a fair shot. Casting for shows is handled by an audition panel that consists of the Director of the show, along with 2-3 additional volunteers that are approved by the Board of Directors.

Audition Policies:
 
Auditions for this show are available to everyone ages 9 and up. (Must be 9 at time of auditions)

​Casting for A Christmas Story will be done by an audition panel consisting of the show director (Bobby Helms), and a panel of impartial volunteers approved by the BLT Board of Directors.

All auditions are closed to the public. No one outside of the audition panel will be allowed inside to watch the audition.

A callback does not guarantee a role, nor does not receiving a callback mean that an actor cannot receive a role. A callback simply means that the director and casting panel would like to see more from an actor or see them onstage with other actors.​

All casting and role selection will be communicated via email from the BLT Business Manager.

Performance Dates are non-negotiable.
