  1. Hi,
    My 9 year old daughter has been involved in Catholic Community Choir for a year and a half but is interested in getting involved with the Media theater plays. How does she go about trying out?


  2. Hello,
    My name is Megan Murphy and I just moved to this area.
    When is the next set of auditions? I’d love to try out.
    I’d also love to get involved with Media Theatre in any way possible in the meantime.
    Do you need any help with the current show?
    Let me know!
    Thank you and God Bless,

  3. Please tell me that auditions for the vocalist are coming soon ! I need to be prepared for the competition this year !

  5. Hi,

    I wanted to contact you in order to express an interest in auditioning for a role in “Romeo and Juliet.” If possible, I would love to have more information on the availability of roles and audition possibilities and requirements.

    Thank you, and I hope to hear from you soon!

    1. Hi Julia,

      All roles are being considered for all types. Additional information will be posted in the coming weeks.

      1. Hi,

        Does your company allow video auditions? I am interested in auditioning for R&J. I am also based out of Nashville. Is it normal for you to cast out of town actors?

        Thank you!

        1. Lacy,

          Great questions – we do do video submissions. R&J is being done by a guest director, let me check with them what might be done with a video submission. To answer your other question, we do hire out of town actors. Generally, they have local housing in the area. If not, we do provide actor housing but it’s limited and based on casting and production needs.

  6. Good afternoon!

    I would love to audition for your production of Romeo and Juliet, but have a prior rehearsal conflict for that evening. Will you accept video submissions of a Shakespearean monologue and one of the sides provided?

  7. Hi,

    I would like to audition for Romeo and Juliet as Juliet and I need an email address to send a video submission, as I am an LA based actor.

    Thank you!
    Sarah Hollis

  8. I am interested in R&J, but all of the roles for which you have sides are the younger men … I am 45. Do we need to prepare one of those monologues, or one that is age appropriate? If the latter, does it need to come from R&J?

  9. Hi there, I’m interested in auditioning for R and J, but cannot make the May 10th auditions. Is there an email where I might send along a video submission, or could I come on the 9th and throw some Shakespeare into your musical auditions?

    Thanks so much!

  10. Hi my name is Patience aged 28,I’m interested in audition for Romeo and Juliet story but I’m not sure if you mind with body size because I’m size 36 body wise?What steps must I take to enter the auditions

    1. As far as requirements for individuals who wish to audition, there are none, in that the production isn’t sure in what direction the show may go. So all are welcome.

    1. Hi Ashley,

      There will not be a separate call – the auditions will fall under the season auditions.

    1. Hi Monica,

      Generally, with the volume of great talent we see, we can’t always call to let actors know but we do make announcements for when things have been cast so that everyone may know as soon as possible.

  11. Hi, I just missed auditions. Will there be another round this summer or is it advisable to send in my headshot/resume or email the contact above? Thank you.

    1. Hi Beth,

      Sorry to hear that! At the moment, please send your headshot and resume with:
      Attn: Jesse Cline
      The Media Theatre
      104 E. State St.
      Media, PA 19063

      In the future, as we approach our shows this upcoming season, individual audition sessions per show will be arranged. Stay tuned as we will update this page with dates for the future. We will be having auditions in New York near the end of June.

  12. Great! I see that the auditions in June are Wednesday, June 22nd in NYC. Are you willing to see non-equity singers/actors or only equity members?

  13. i have a question. for the vocalist junior, it says bring sheet music for piano player. do you need to veing sheet music? or can yiu bring a CD with th music burned on it?

    1. Hi Abigail,

      All Vocalist contestant are required to sing with an accompanist, therefore, the accompanist will need sheet music so he may play along with the chosen song.

  14. Hi there–my daughter is interested in the vocalist junior competition…..can you tell me the time requirements if she is chosen–including days and times she would need to be at the theater? Thank you!

    1. We’re glad to hear she’s interested in the upcoming Vocalist competition!

      Vocalist Jr rehearsals are on Saturdays from 8am-10:30am before the Sunday night Vocalist Jr competition. It’s first come, first serve for rehearsals with the accompanist during the rehearsal period. Once she’s done rehearsing, she is free to leave!

      We all look forward to your daughter’s participation in the upcoming competition! Break a leg!

  15. Hi there!
    I was very involved in theatre as a teen, and am looking to getting back involved. It’s been about 15 years, so I’m thinking about registering for the adult acting classes, to then pursue future auditions for the media theatre company. Is this the road I should take? Any suggestions would be appreciated!! Thank you!!

    1. We always welcome registrations for our adult acting classes! They are now open for the Fall Session
      Thanks for your interest

    1. Hi Racko,

      Our next musical will be A Christmas Story, though it and the following show, Romeo & Juliet have already been cast. Auditions for Side Show will be happening October 18th at the theatre’s dance studio in Media. For Teen-Specific auditions, those will be held at a to be determined time for summer programming! Keep in touch with our website and after the holidays we will probably have times posted.
