Summer Program Auditions

The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College Theatre Company is pleased to announce auditions for our upcoming summer programming. We are so excited to share that we will be performing LIVE! However, auditions will be by video submission.

Auditions are for two projects: an outdoor theatre for young audiences series called Front Range Fables, and Working, the musical. Both programs are a part of the Fine Arts Center’s City as a Venue initiative, which will bring performances to locations throughout Colorado Springs.

The final date to submit your audition materials is April 26, 2021. If additional material is requested, you can expect to receive that request on or about May 3, 2021.

  • Front Range Fables: This series of plays for young audiences written by local playwrights is based on historical events from the Pikes Peak region. Performed Saturdays (June 26–Aug. 7) at venues throughout the city. First rehearsal is June 17, 2021.
    *Seeking Non Union Performers
  • Working, a musical based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers that paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted. Aug. 24–Sept. 5 on the FAC Outdoor Stage (ticketed; free tickets reserved at each performance for community frontline workers). First rehearsal is August 3, 2021.
    *Seeking Union and Non Union Performers

Auditions will be by submission only. Please ensure you complete the following steps:

  1. Fill out audition application
  2. Upload the files listed below here
    a. Headshot
    b. Resume
    c. Video audition file (in this order: 1. monologue 2. musical theatre song, both in one video file) Please prepare and record a short monologue (90 seconds or less) and a 32 bar selection from a musical theatre song, both memorized.  If you have a backing track or piano accompaniment, that would be preferred, however acapella will be accepted.
