Q: Does Rose of Athens Theatre, Inc. do musicals?
A: We commission composers who create music and perform for almost all of our productions. (For instance, Marty Winkler composed all the music for Alice in Wonderland). We integrate live music and dance/movement into many of our productions, so we like to know how you move and if you can carry a tune. Also, if you play an instrument, bring it to the audition and show us!
Q: When will I know if I get a part and will I be contacted if I am going to be considered for any roles this season?

Q: Are there callbacks?
A: There may be callbacks and production-specific additional auditions, as needed.
Q: What are you looking for?
A: We are looking for talented collaborators, who are hard working and have a commitment to the craft of theater. We cast equity, non-equity and youth.
