Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney film
In the McCreary Theatre
Based on the classic novel and well-loved songs from the Disney animated feature, this powerful story will transport you to fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer, escapes the shadows of the cathedral for a day encountering a world which, while enthralling, is also much crueler than it appears from the safety of the bell towers. Come be swept away by the magic of this truly unforgettable musical.
This is my first time auditioning. Any advice?
It’s easy (and very normal) to become nervous about auditioning, especially if it’s your first time. Relax! You’re going to be great. The most important thing is to just have fun… that’s why we are all here, right?!
What should I prepare?
Most of our auditions will include cold-reading from the script. There will be select scenes from the play that the director may ask you to read from. Don’t worry, you’ll be given plenty of time to look them over before it’s time for you to step into the limelight!
Some of our directors request that you prepare a short monologue. This will be notated in the show’s specific audition information.
Musicals require a prepared song (about 2 pages worth). The song does not have to be from the musical, but should be from the same musical theatre style genre as the show. Please bring sheet music for the accompanist. Acappella auditions are discouraged. Pop, rock, and country songs are discouraged unless the show you are auditioning for includes those types of music.
Should I come both days?
Each of our shows have two days of auditions. You only need to come for one day! We hold two rounds of auditions with the hope that one of the days will work with everyone’s schedule.
What should I wear?
Always wear comfortable clothing that you can move well in, and please wear closed-toe shoes.
Where do I go?
All auditions will be held at the Old Post Office Playhouse located at 10 South Main Avenue, Newton, NC 28658. Usually, you will be asked to enter at the lower level door at the back of the building (on South Ashe Avenue).
I was cast in the show. Now what?
Congratulations! Being in a show is one of the most fun and rewarding things to do… you’ll definitely have a blast. Make sure to check your email often, as that is our primary form of communication.

I wasn't cast this time. Now what?
Auditioning for any show is always a great experience, regardless of whether you make it or not! Keep up the good work!
