Monroe Community Players maintains a policy of open casting at all auditions. This means that you will be auditioning in front of a group of others who are auditioning and may be asked to perform along with them. 

You do not have to be a member of MCP to audition or be cast in a show. However, you do need to be a member to participate. If you are cast, we ask that you join MCP at whatever level you feel comfortable at by the first rehearsal, before receiving rehearsal materials. Individual membership in MCP starts at $20.

On rare occasion, a role may be precast.  If a role is precast, it will be announced before auditions.

To speed up the check in process you may bring a completed MCP audition form with you to the audition.

However, in some cases a script may call for a specific ethnicity, gender, or age. Whenever contractually required to do so MCP will cast within the guidelines of the script and the playwright’s desires.
