Alton Little Theater is actively seeking young adults (both males and females) for several new plays being considered for upcoming productions in 2016-2017. We are looking to greatly increase our resource of talented newcomers and performers with previous experience. ALL OF OUR AUDITIONS ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND MOST OFTEN CONSIST OF COLD READINGS FROM THE SCRIPT….Please consider ADDING “Being in an ALT Play”  to your “Bucket list.”


(Production Dates: December 1st - 10th, 2017)

Auditions – Saturday, September 23, 2017; 10 am or by appointment

Directed by Kevin Frakes

4 Female and 3 Males, all age 25 - 70+

Director Kevin Frakes states that even though the Comedy is a sequel of sorts to NICE FAMILY THANKSGIVING done at ALT in 2015, the play revolves around some NEW extended family members and roles will not be automatically filled with previous performers. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and a little improvisation exercise and will be held at the Showplace.


(Production Dates: February 8th - 19th, 2018)

Auditions – October 17th and 18th, 2017; 7 pm

Directed by Kevin Frakes

12+ roles, may be played by males or females

To be held at the Dorothy Colonius foyer at the Showplace. The well- crafted Farce has a dozen roles of zany characters, a few of which can be played by males or females - AND some roles may be played by ONE very-talented Actor or Actress! The production calls for an enormous and somewhat complex set with precision timing, so rehearsals will begin right after the Holidays. Frakes says that being part of this very funny show should be a blast!
