What to expect at your interview

Calvin Theatre Company actors rehearseCTC interviews are held in small groups of 5-6 students. Since theatre is a collaborative art form, we begin to build a community during the audition process.

We talk briefly about the company and answer any questions you may have. We also do a few simple physical and vocal warm-ups, and for those interested in acting, we provide you with a short audition piece to read.

You do not need to prepare anything for your interview. Simply show up a few minutes early for your scheduled time, wear comfortable clothes and expect to spend about 30 minutes with us. For more information please check out Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
