Welcome to the Theatre Alliance of Buffalo (TAB) Auditions Page!

Please note that in order to audition for TAB, you must be a graduating college senior or out of school.  Current students who will be enrolled as a student during the 16-17 season are not eligible.  Individual theatres will hold auditions for student actors if their shows warrant it.

Auditions for the 2016-2017 Season will be held:

PLAYS - Monday, Feb. 1 at Road Less Traveled Theatre, 500 Pearl Street, Buffalo, NY, 14202. (6pm-10pm each night)

MUSICALS - Monday, Feb. 8 at MusicalFare Theatre, 4380 Main Street, Amherst, NY 14226 - on the Daemen College Campus. (5pm-10pm)

Auditions are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.  The deadline to make an appointment HAS PASSED.  No further appointments are being accepted for the above audition dates.

 Stipulations/Materials Needed:            

                FOR PLAYS
              -One (maximum) two-minute monologue OR one (maximum) five-minute scene between two people.  The monologue/scene MUST be memorized and may not be longer than the allotted time.  Your audition will be stopped by a monitor at the appropriate-minute mark. 

If you are choosing to do a two-person scene, please be aware that both auditioners must both have the same time slot – please check with your audition partner for his/her availability before contacting TAB.  Please make sure that when you set up the appointment that BOTH auditioners’ forms/headshots/resumes are sent in simultaneously – preferably in the same email. 

            -Your $5 audition fee.  If you are doing a two-person scene, BOTH auditioners must pay the $5 fee. 

              FOR MUSICALS:
            -Sheet music for 32 bars of ONE SONG. Sheet music must include piano accompaniment.  The song MUST be memorized.

            -Your $5 audition fee (if you didn’t already pay at a play audition).

(7) Individual TAB theatres will hold callbacks at their discretion later in the year for individual shows. 

Your TAB Audition fee is used to help pay for CDs containing all auditioners’ headshots, resumes and audition forms, thus saving auditioners the cost of having to provide up to 50 printed copies of those materials.

TAB Auditions are a general audition allowing actors to perform for representatives of TAB Member Theatres for the upcoming season, and for subsequent seasons.
