Auditioning for MMFT

for the Mid Michigan Family Theatre

Mid Michigan Family Theatre holds open auditions for the majority of its shows. They consist of cold readings from the scripts along with other activities chosen by the director. These might include announcing a prepared monologue, improvisations, or something similar. Unless noted, auditions are for all ages.

Actors are expected to come in 10-15 min. before the scheduled time in order to fill out paperwork and leave when dismissed by the director.  Please be punctual.  

Please look at our website for information on specific roles in our plays.

A Note on Production Fees:

Like other sports and recreation programs for young people, there is a participation fee to be in the production. We charge reasonable, modest fees. With these fees you will receive a script, costumes, props, and help with overall production costs. Adults will not be assessed a production fee but are asked to help mentor younger actors and / or help with production duties such as costuming, set building, etc.  Thank you.
