Get Involved

Omaha Community Playhouse is committed to diverse, inclusive casting.


Actors please be prepared with the following:
  • You will be asked to fill out an audition form in advance, not at the audition. You can return the completed paperwork by email or bring it to the audition. Please have all necessary contact information and schedules available.
  • A recent photo to attach to your audition form. Please note, the photos do not need to be professional and will not be returned.
  • Should you not have a photo, one will be taken at the time of the audition, but the check in process may take longer.

Auditioning for a Play

  • You will be asked to read from the script, which will be provided at the audition.
  • You may be asked to participate in movement exercises, if the play requires movement.  Please be dressed comfortably.

Auditioning for a Musical

What to Bring:
  • Please come prepared with 16 bars of music prepared to sing. An accompanist will be provided.
  • There will be a dance audition, please come dressed ready to move. No boots, sandals, flip-flops, slick shoes, etc. (This is excluded from the 2020/21 season musical auditions. Dance skills will be evaluated at callbacks.)
  • To expedite the check in process—please bring recent photo if you have one available. Please note, photos will not be returned.
