Audition

Community theater is a wonderful way to experience the magic of live performance. Whidbey Playhouse is truly a place where everyone belongs. A place where everyone is working together for one reason: to bring joy to audiences. What’s better than that?

 

We encourage you to audition for our upcoming productions. We know that stepping out of your comfort zone and in to the spotlight can be daunting, especially when you don't know what to fully expect.  But, remember, it doesn't matter if you don’t have any experience — everyone is welcome. All ages. All skill levels.

Show Opens September 6 and runs thru September 29, 2024. 

The Savannah Sipping Society is a comedy that touches on the true meaning of friendship and what it means when circumstances force us to adjust to the uncomfortable changes, twists and turns that confront us in life. 4 Southern women: Randa, Dot, Marlafaye and later, Jinx, their new “life coach”, agree to meet on Randa’s veranda on Friday nights for cocktails.

We are looking for 4 females to play middle aged women, and 1 Female non-speaking double cast role. The set will have a flight of stairs for the closing scene, actors will be required to exit and enter the rest of the set quickly during transition scenes, and they will need to be able to take a few dance steps.
