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

Next to Normal
A Musical

Next To Normal is an unflinching look at how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness. Winner of three 2009 TONY Awards including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize. Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal, because the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. Next To Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart.

Parental Advisory: Next to Normal is intended for mature audiences due to language and adult topics.
