2018 Audition Information

Other Roles:*

(optional) Genesius prides itself in giving roles to individuals who appear to look and act the part, regardless of past experience & expertise. "Seniority" or "I deserver a turn" is not how the casting decision is made. We encourage those who have no experience and are looking to try something new to give us a shot. We may take the audition process very seriously, but we also maintain a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere during the audition process to encourage all walks to attend. We encourage our recent newcomers, here and there friends, as well as our veterans to audition as well. Together, we will put something together that best represents our vision for the productions.

Briefly, write in your 3 most recent productions, the role you had, and the year it took place. NOTE: Please leave blank if you have no previous experience or if you are planning to bring in a printed resume for the casting directors.

NOTE: In the past, folks had the option to upload their resumes to their audition form. This is not an option this year. If you wish to provide a resume, please bring 5 copies to your audition. The copier will be needed for other tasks during auditions, and will not be available for you to make a copy of your resume. Please limit your printed resumes to a single page and a single side to promote professionalism and faster reference for the casting directors.

3) Some productions may request a minimal, non-refundable, custom costume fee.

    Genesius Theatre Reading

    High school. The time for figuring out who you are, and who you want to be, and how to get there. Were you the preppy good girl or the goth chick? The science geek or the stoner? The jock or the class president?

    Or maybe you were like Veronica Sawyer: a girl on the fringes, trying to navigate her way unscathed between all of the different worlds where she finds herself.

    Can it be done? Will Veronica - and everyone else - survive? Come find out when Genesius Theatre Reading presents

    Sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia: a cold-stimulus headache, or as we more commonly know it, BRAIN FREEZE.

    Veronica and J.D are both misfits who get off to a rough start, but bond over the wondrous effects of the deliciousness that is the Slurpee. But they have differences: Veronica wants to fit in with the status quo, while J.D. wants to blow it up. Literally.

    Come find out who gets what they want … and who gets what they deserve, when Genesius Theatre Reading presents

    Genesius Theatre Reading

    Today, April 19, marks 43 years since the passing of Genesius' founder, Jane Simmon Miller. 1923 - 1975

    A word from our Artistic Producer, Larry Fecho:

    "One of the greatest women I have ever known! ! I miss you lady! I so wish you were here to see how far Genesius has come and knew how many young actors lives you have touched! And to think it just started as a dream... a thought... a hope... in your brilliantly creative brain."

    "Jane died on the closing Saturday night of our production of “Cabaret” - April 19 - That was so Jane! The final lyrics of the finale are “Auf wiedersehen! A bientot! Good night!” - At the time of her passing she was directing “Plain Betsy” —- oddly or Godly it was the first show she ever directed and the last one as well!"

    An excerpt from "Genesius The Musical" by Larry Fecho & Michael O’Flaherty:

    “Then out of the blue, something happens to you... there’s a friendly face... a hand extended in love...”
