REMINDER - If you have an appointment, there is a mandatory $5 audition fee which you bring to your first audition.  Payment may be made by check (payable to Theatre Alliance of Buffalo) or cash (exact change only).  You only pay this $5 fee ONCE, whether you are auditioning one night or two nights. 

If you wish to have your headshot and contact information on the TAB website, you may add $20 to your payment (for a grand total of $25).  This is not mandatory.

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. 

            -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).

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.

Auditions are being held earlier this year due to actor feedback - there WILL NOT BE auditions in April/May as in past years. 

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