Audition Opportunities

The Castaways Repertory Theatre is a volunteer organization, a member of the Prince William County Arts Council, NVTA (formerly the Northern Virginia Theatre Alliance) and WATCH (the Washington Area Theatre Community Honors).  Castaways  is a community theatre, there is no pay involved.  Partial funding is provided by a grant from Prince William County.

AUDITION INFORMATION

We do color-, gender-, and age-blind casting. The actor’s abilities are more important than their race, gender, and age for every role in the show. The only exception is when children are required or where historical accuracy or traditional roles outweigh blind casting. Both seasoned actors and first timers are encouraged to audition.
