DramaTech Announce Auditions for the Fall 2016 Semester


Auditions for DramaTech’s The Taming will be held on Sunday, 8/28 and Monday, 8/29 at 7pm at DramaTech Theatre. There is nothing to prepare for the audition and you only need to attend one night.  Please note this show contains roles for three women only.

About the show: A conservative senator’s aide and a liberal blogger wake up in bed together in a hotel room at the Miss America pageant. Discovering that they are being held captive by Miss Georgia until they can rewrite the Constitution for a modern age, these two women question their political identity and politics in this contemporary comedic take on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.

LaMancha - Landscape

Auditions for DramaTech’s The Man of La Mancha will be held on Tuesday, August 30 and Wednesday, August 31 at 7pm at DramaTech Theatre.  For this audition, please prepare a one minute maximum monologue and one full verse and chorus from a classical musical theatre piece.  You only need to attend one night.

Please note that there will be callbacks for this audition held on Thursday, September 1 at 7pm.  You will be dancing if called back, so please dress for movement.

About the show: What do you do when your livelihood relies solely on your art?   When Michael Cervantes finds himself locked in a dungeon fighting for all of his belongings including his prized manuscript, he takes on the role of a lifetime – the main character in his novel, Don Quixote, an errant knight who believes in love, hope and the impossible dream.

DramaTech announces Auditions for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Putnam County tabloid-01

Auditions for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee will be held on Sunday, January 10th and Monday, January 11th. Callbacks will be Tuesday, January 12th.

Auditions should consist of singing a prepared song and performing a cold read. The prepared song should be around 32 bars of something similar to this show, but not from it, and there will be a piano player to provide accompaniment, if sheet music is brought. Furthermore, no karaoke tracks or CDs may be used.  Accapella singing is discourage

Callbacks will have a short dance sequence.


You have to keep your head in the game if you want to be the champion of the spelling bee.  For this diverse group of teenage spellers, each presented word carries humorous, heart-wrenching and embarrassing stories of life at home.  Keeping a clear head in the midst of these distractions can cause them to hear that soul-crushing “ding” of the bell – a spelling mistake. Only one can win, the rest get juice boxes.  Light-hearted and funny, the TONY award winning show the 25th Annual Putman County Spelling Bee features audience participation – can you win the bee?

We all want to be Evelyn Frost – beautiful, young, hip, perfect. Or at least that’s what we are meant to believe from her online persona. Using only language from social media postings, Five Faces for Evelyn Frost will take you on a wild ride as five friends vie to increase their status through what they reveal on the internet’s most notorious and beloved websites. The show runs February 19-20 & 25-27

Auditions are November 22 & 23 at 7pm; Actors only need to attend one day. Auditions will consist of improv and a cold read; you do not need to prepare anything.
