Suffield Players Audition Schedule for 2017-2018


The Suffield Players holds show specific auditions at our theater in Mapleton Hall's North Hall (entrance to right) unless otherwise noted, and are open to all actors.  We do not pre-cast shows but specific information about auditions may change and will be published in advance on our website and via email.  Actors may be added to our mailing list by using our Membership Form.  The Suffield Players is an all volunteer organization.

Auditions generally are cold readings from the script; musicals will request prepared songs as outlined in the director notes.  If a monologue, movement, improv, or other specific elements are to be included in the process, we will provide ample notice.

We do three main stage shows and one holiday benefit each year plus staged readings.  Auditions have generally occurred mid-month in August, October, November and January but watch here for details.  Our upcoming season's specific dates are below.
