Thank you for supporting Newtown Arts Company. As we return for a full season of live shows in 2022, we are continue to be concerned about the health and safety of our

audience, volunteers, cast and crew.

All actors, crew, staff, and volunteers MUST be vaccinated. We will be checking vaccine proof and IDs at auditions. This situation will be monitored and may be updated at a later time. 





Auditioners should be prepared to sing 16-32 measures of a song in the style of the show. Please bring sheet music for your song and an accompanist will be provided.

  • People auditioning will get a page with some lines, known as a side, that they can look at for a bit and then read with expression.
  • There is also a form to fill out to get your information. Depending on how many people are there, this should take about 30 minutes.
  • It is important to see each person’s acting, dancing, and singing skills
  • Please sign up for a slot that fits your schedule
  • Please research the musical as it will assist in helping to know what the directors are looking for in their cast members.
  • Covid restrictions may apply at the time of rehearsals and/or during the production.
