If you haven’t already, we invite you to create a profile with CallBoard. This program was created by BYU students to help you find local auditions and actors for your projects. CallBoard is now recognized as the largest database of Utah Actors and Utah Auditions. We think this will be a great resource for all of our students. Actor accounts are only $10/year. This grants you access to all of the local auditions and upload your resume/headshot so that directors can contact you directly and Director accounts are Free. Our goal is to help you as a student connect with those in the industry by finding work both in the department and outside of BYU. Create an account as soon as possible with the link below.

American Fork Community Theater

American Fork Community Theater is excited to announce auditions for our spring production of, “Footloose,” directed by Beth Bruner. Auditions will be held on Wednesday, November 14 and Thursday, November 15 from 6-9pm. Callbacks will be held by invitation only on November 17th from 10:00- 2:00. Dancing will take place at callbacks only. More details to follow after auditions. Auditions will be held at the American Fork Arts Institute: 53 West Main Street, American Fork. Those who audition should bring a hard copy of a theatrical resume and a photograph (the photograph does not have to be a formal head shot). Please prepare a 1-minute monologue that reflects the character you are auditioning for (not from “Footloose”). If you want to join with a partner and bring a 2-minute memorized scene instead, that is also acceptable, however individual songs are requested. Those who audition are also asked to prepare to sing 18- 32 bars of a Broadway song in the style of the show. We will have an accompanist there but you can also bring your own MP3 or cds. Plugins for MP3 players or phones/pads will be provided. NO A CAPPELLA singing, please. If you bring a pre-recorded track, please find the karaoke or minus track without singing. We want to hear your voice, NOT the voice of the artist who recorded the song. If you are absolutely not able to attend auditions or callbacks, video auditions will be accepted until November 15th at midnight.

Auditions for The Importance of Being Earnest begin November 6th! ONLY online video submissions will be accepted November 6th to November 28th at midnight.
