There will be 3 parts to the audition: singing, acting, and dancing, all to be recorded and submitted. Please put all of these on one video, with a slate at the beginning. (So, you'll introduce yourself, give your age and/or grade, and tell us a little about yourself and then create the video.) Please don't edit the video except to connect them one to the other. Please,  upload your video to YouTube. Make sure to make it "unlisted" in settings, that way only people you give the link to can see it.

Along with a video submission, auditionees should attach:

Call backs will take place virtually and/or on a later date. Tech positions will also be cast from auditionees.

Prepare a 30-60 second monologue. Shoulders up should be in frame for this segment of the audition.


Please learn the dance combination with the instructional video. Then, record with the run through video. Full body should be in frame for this segment of the audition. Don't worry! This is just to see how you move. Please wear clothes and shoes that you can dance in.

Past Productions

2023 - Seussical

"What a wonderful performance of Seussical that we experienced on opening night last Thursday. Our grandchildren enjoyed it tremendously.

This is a high-quality production, supported by OPAS and performed by talent from several counties in this area. The talent was amazing and the story is fun.

We would encourage everyone to get tickets and go this week"

~ Mike Holland

2022 - Godspell

"Go Tell It On The Mountain - Tonight's Godspell performance... exuded unbeatable quality, passion, and commitment by the cast which permeated the theatre during the entire performance. Oh wow!"

~ Murry Air

2021 - Once Upon a Mattress

"Over the years, we have seen many wonderful theatrical productions at the plaza, but this Plaza/Arts Barn collaboration was outstanding.... They were a joy to watch as they performed, sang, and danced their way into the hearts of an appreciative audience.... As we walked home afterwards, Tom remarked, "Tonight was exactly what the founding members dreamed about as we worked to restore the school and build the Plaza." I consider that a high praise indeed!
