On Stage

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE NOTIFIED on any upcoming auditions, please subscribe to our auditions email list using the button below.

Thanks for your interest in becoming an active member of the Guild. Check this page for audition updates.

Audition Preparation:
Directors run auditions differently. Some may say, “Please come prepared with a monologue” and others may not. Musicals may require auditioners to have a song prepared and bring sheet music. It’s a good idea to come prepared as requested.

Auditions are usually on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive at the scheduled start times as auditions will end when the last person has been seen. Some auditions are done privately and some in groups.

Yes, I would like to be notified when Auditions occur!

Backstage

THE GUILD PRODUCES eight or nine plays a year in our own facility. Volunteers make this all possible. It can take a team of up to 100 people to make a show happen. Some work for one evening, some design and build before a show opens and some volunteer each night of performance. Others serve year-round on our Board and other committees.

For those new to theatre, we have skilled and talented people who can work with you while you learn. We always welcome people to fill the following roles:

• Box office (processing ticket orders in advance and at the door)
• Ushers
• Bartenders
• Set building
• Set painting
• Props (creating and locating them and managing them backstage during a play)
• Technical (running sound and lighting)
• Stagehand
• Stage make-up (experience with make-up helps)
• Production assistant
• Costumes (sewing experience needed)
• Dressers and wardrobe (assisting with costumes during a play)

Those with more experience can assist with:

• Stage managing
• Producing
• Directing
• Choreographing
• Musical Direction
• Set Design
• Costume Design
• Lighting Design
• Sound Design

For the Kids

THE GUILD IS PROUD to partner with Linda Kash and the Peterborough Academy of Performing Arts (PAPA) to provide classes for young children and teens. Linda and her late husband (Actor Paul O’Sullivan) created PAPA to provide the highest quality drama education to local children and adults alike.

The mission of The Peterborough Academy of Performing Arts is to provide the highest caliber of education in the performing arts to students of all ages and experience, so that they may achieve their fullest potential as artists, and community members. PAPA provides an educational environment that fosters the artistic, intellectual, and personal growth of its students and prepares them for the next level of their artistic education. PAPA shares with the Guild a commitment to uphold the diversity of the community by fostering an environment that is inclusive, supportive, and welcoming to all.

Follow the link to PAPA to learn more, or to register your child for classes.
