The GCP is a community theater. If you would like to try your hand at acting, we would love for you to audition. We welcome actors of all experience levels. Generally, to audition for a regular play, you will be asked to do a “cold reading” which is a small reading directly from the play script.

Occasionally, some directors will ask that you come with a prepared monologue. Check here or in the Scene Magazine in the Thursday edition of Gainesville Sun for the audition announcement.

For musicals, in addition to the cold readings come to the audition prepared to sing 16 measures of a song. Please bring sheet music for your song selection. A piano player will be available to accompany you. For musicals there may also be a simple dance audition. Because we are a community theater, we realize that actors come with a wide range of dance ability from two left feet to experienced professionals. GCP choreographers are experts at making everyone look like naturals dancing on stage.

At the GCP we see dozens of new faces at every audition. Some actors come to audition for specific rolls they have been dying to play all their lives. Some actors are happy just to be cast in any part of a show. We welcome all! Often newcomers are offered smaller roles and chorus parts giving them and us the opportunity to “get to know each other.”

Upcoming Auditions

Breaking Legs
A Comedy

English professor and playwright Terence O’Keefe is about to discover that there’s no business like show business…. unless it’s “the family business.” Terence hopes Lou, the father of former student Angie Graziano who runs an Italian restaurant, will invest in his latest play. Although they are theatre fans, “Break a Leg” means something entirely different to them. Lou’s mafia money comes with an order to marry his daughter and Terence already has a wife. After witnessing an unfortunate accident, Terrence realizes he is in way over his head. Will he wind up married to the mob, or will this fish-out-of-water find himself sleeping with the fishes? Well-seasoned with irresistible innuendo, laughter is on the menu as this deliciously dark comedy serves up spaghetti with a side of murder, menace, and meatballs.+

Please Note that this show contains adult themes, comedy and sexual content.
