Please plan to attend one evening. You do not need to prepare anything. Please dress in comfortable clothing and closed-toed shoes. The audition will consist of some ensemble & improv work, readings from the script, and light singing (no prior experience is necessary, but a willingness to play and explore a must!). Families are encouraged to audition!
Callbacks will be scheduled for the following week if necessary.
About the Play: In this hilarious Christmas classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids--probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem - and the fun - when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on! Rehearsals will be scheduled for evenings and weekends based on cast availability beginning in late September. The show runs November 5th-21st (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday performances). General Role Overview: ~10 Adults (characters read ages 25 and up, 6 female identifying/4 male identifying) ~17 Youth (characters read ages 5-13, 9 female identifying/8 male identifying) [Some roles may be combined to reduce total cast number]

Auditions Policy The Bellevue Little Theatre, an all volunteer organization, maintains an "equal opportunity" policy for volunteer recruitment of both board and production positions. Auditions are open to the general public, with the same "equal opportunity" policy. All roles are open for audition except an occasional role is precast and is so noted in the audition notice.
We are always in search of talent of all ages, mostly adult. Our children shows require many child actors, as do some of the other shows, as listed in the audition notices. Audition notices will be placed on this page as they are announced. Also look for them in your newspaper and listen for public service announcements on radio and television. Specific questions can be addressed by calling us at 402-291-1554 or complete the form above.
