We are seeking a very diverse cast representative of our community – with a wide range of ages, types and ethnicities. A full character breakdown from the script is available below. Additional information about the show’s plot and a character breakdown is available on our Audition page.

Those wishing to audition should prepare a vocal selection no longer than one minute. Please bring sheet music for the pianist as accompaniment will be provided. For these auditions, you will also be asked to sing selections from the show (we will teach them to you, of course). Callbacks will be by invitation only on May 16 – where we will also ask you to learn a dance routine and give out scene sides to read.

So, ladies and gentlemen (and those who have yet to make up their minds), we look forward to seeing you either May 14 or 15 at 7:00pm. Bring a friend or three – and go ahead and feel free to fill out and print our audition form in advance.

Auditions – MTI’s All Together Now!


Auditions – September 19 & 20 at 7:00pm at Theatre Tallahassee

Open auditions for All Together Now! – Produced by New Stage Theatreworks, in partnership with Quincy Music Theatre and Theatre Tallahassee.

Come join the cast of this global event celebrating local theatre – performing November 12-15 in both Quincy and Tallahassee. This show is a fundraiser for some of the companies that had to shut down during the pandemic, with more than 3,800 performances at 1,600 schools and theatres around the world in just one weekend.

We are looking for a diverse cast reflective of the theatre community – all races, ethnicities, genders and ages. Our final show order will be determined by the talent of those who audition – which is why we would LOVE to have the variety so we have more choices.

Come prepared to sing about a minute of a song that shows off your range (bring your own sheet music) – and also make sure you bring something comfortable to dance in. You can also download and complete the audition form before you get there:

This show is not your normal “musical revue” – we get to perform our own unique series of musical numbers and make the show our very own (with local celebrities and special guests). The following link will take you to the full show order – with SO MANY DREAM SONGS on this list:

Please wear a mask to auditions (we will tell you when you can take it off) and we look forward to seeing you!

Fun Home Auditions Are Coming


When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.


Auditions for this show are September 15 & 16.  Check our Auditions page for the most up to date information.

Auditions for HAIR

HAIR logo

The American tribal love-rock musical HAIR celebrates the sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, bell-bottomed, beaded and fringed glory. To an infectiously energetic rock beat, the show wows audiences with songs like “Aquarius,” “Good Morning, Starshine,” “Hair,” “I Got Life,” and “Let The Sun Shine.” Exploring ideas of identity, community, global responsibility and peace, HAIR remains relevant as ever as it examines what it means to be a young person in a changing world.

Auditions for In The Heights May 21 and 22

New Stage Theatreworks will be holding auditions on May 21 & 22 at 7:00pm for “In the Heights“, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, and book by Quiara Alegría Hudes. We are seeking talented individuals from our culturally-diverse community to join us for this musical’s Tallahassee premiere – running July 7-16.
N THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. IN THE HEIGHTS is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical.
This production is directed by Krystof Kage, with musical direction by Andy Lagrimas and choreography by Ashlee Benson.
Audition Specifics:
For auditions, please prepare 16 bars of a song and bring/wear clothes that are comfortable for a dance audition. Piano accompaniment will be provided. Songs from the show are discouraged. There may be a cold-reading portion with script sides to be provided at the audition.

For those wishing to be considered for Usnavi, Sonny, Benny or Graffiti Pete: Please prepare an original rap, to be performed a capella, that lasts no more than 30 seconds. We are looking for skills – diction, inflection, speed and movement should be highlighted.
