Upcoming Auditions


We invite actors to attend open auditions for all of our regular shows. To receive reminders of upcoming auditions, sign up for our audition mailing list.

We request that actors download and fill out our audition form to bring to the audition. This will include a listing of all your conflicts from the start of rehearsals through closing night, including weekends. Resumés are appreciated. Headshots are not required.

Unless otherwise specified, American accents are used for all shows.

Performances are at the Nomad Playhouse in north Boulder, except as noted.

  • Dark of the Moon, directed by Jim Heun, jim.heun@theupstartcrow.org; Tuesday, March 7, 2017; rehearsals begin Monday, March 20, 2017. Performances are weekends, April 27 - May 7, 2017.

    Dark of the Moon features bluegrass music, but there are many non singing roles. 13 male roles and 12 female, ages 12 to 105. Banjo, fiddle, guitar and voice are pluses. All ethnicities are welcome. Appalachian accents will be used.

    A synopsis is available at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_of_the_Moon_(play).


All auditions and most rehearsals will be held at 7:30pm at The Upstart Crow Studio, 2131 Arapahoe Avenue, Unit A, in Boulder. Actors are requested to bring a resumé and prepare a one-minute reading from a similar play (it need not be memorized). Expect cold readings from the script as well. Normally, shows are cast the night of auditions. If you have any questions, please contact the director or info@theupstartcrow.org or call (303)442-1415.

Rehearsals are Monday-Friday, 7:30-10:00pm at the Upstart Crow Studio (at the theater starting the Monday before opening).

All actors in Upstart Crow productions receive a small stipend. Not enough to pay your rent, but it might help with your transportation.

The Upstart Crow Theatre Company is an actors' company and actors are expected to help with tech work - set and/or costume construction weekend afternoons during the rehearsal period - and publicity. All actors are expected to help with move-in on the Sunday before opening and strike on closing night.

Like all theatre companies, we have a commitment to our ensemble members. Still, we always cast actors from outside our company. Act with us often enough and you'll gain the benefits of membership.

We have roles for all ethnicities.
