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 of your choosing. 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 the nature of 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

Oklahoma!
An Musical

Set in a Western Indian Territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!
