VTG Open Audition Policy
It is the policy of the Vicksburg Theatre Guild that all auditions are open to the public. We need and want any interested people, newcomers and stage veterans alike, to participate in the fun and excitement of live theatre. We publicize our auditions in local and regional media to attempt to make all interested parties aware of our performing opportunities. Because the Directors of our plays only have limited roles for which they are casting, everybody who auditions will not be selected for a part. However, we are also always in need of assistance in other areas of theatre, including set construction, set artwork, lighting, and backstage technical activities, so people who are not selected for acting roles have other enjoyable activities available. We invite all members of the public to participate in these activities, as well.
We encourage everybody in the cast and production staff to be members of the Vicksburg Theatre Guild. View our membership rates and the benefits of membership.
