Audition/Production Info

Adult Theatre Productions

Overview

We welcome the experienced actor as well as the first timer! Playhouse 38 offers four adult productions per year, and will be offering a mix of musical and non-musical productions.

Auditions

Auditions will be 6 to 8 weeks (12 for a musical) prior to the show. Participants are asked to prepare a short monologue of their choice (this can also be a poem) and to do a cold reading from the script (provided at the audition).  Once cast, participants pay a registration fee and receive their script and rehearsal schedule.

Rehearsals

Rehearsals vary with each show but are usually 3 nights a week. Once cast, a detailed rehearsal schedule is provided along with the script. The week before the show is tech week, where all of the costumes, lighting, sound, and stage moves are rehearsed, and attendance is mandatory for everyone cast.

Performances

Shows are performed over a weekend, and typically include 4-5 showtimes - Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday afternoon and night, and Sunday afternoon. Some shows are held over two weekends. 

Tickets can be purchased online at genevaparks.org; in-person at Sunset Community Center and Stephen Persinger Recreation Center; or by calling 630-232-4542. Any remaining seats the day of the show will be sold at the Playhouse 38 box office. Concessions, including bottled water, bottled soda,  juice, and candy, are sold on-site at the box office prior to the show and at show intermission.

Other Volunteering Opportunities

We are always looking for volunteer help with props, set painting and construction, stage crew, and tech. Please contact our Cultural Arts Coordinator Lisa Pivaronas at lpivaronas@genevaparks.com for more information.
