AUDITIONS
Our next round of auditions will be in early March, 2017. To keep up on the latest news and announcements, please join our mailing list and follow us on Facebook.

The information below was from our most recent round of auditions. It is here to give you an idea of what to expect when the next round comes.

Important Audition Info

Please read the following information below about auditioning. Also, be sure to:
  • Check the season calendar of rehearsal and performance dates and cross-reference your own calendars for potential conflicts.
  • Print and sign the Parent/Guardian Signature form (150kb PDF). This important document contains the photo release, company member conduct pledge, and medical release information. This must be read, signed, and turned in at the audition! (We will have hard-copies on hand at auditions.)
  • If I auditioned last year, do I need to audition again?
    Yup. Year after year, we’re amazed at how much growth we see during auditions. We don’t pre-cast shows — if we did, it would be to our own detriment, since the pool of talent changes so dramatically between auditions. Plus, auditioning is a great opportunity to meet some new friends, face a scary thing down, and practice your one-person show.

    (Also, remember that every rehearsal is an audition -- if we have worked with you on past shows, we've gotten to know what you are capable of and what you're like to work with in greater detail than any 5 minute audition could show. An important fact to remember each day of rehearsal, eh?)

  • What shows do these auditions cover in terms of casting?
    THE MUSIC MAN: The story of a charismatic conman who convinces a bunch of kids to participate in the arts, thus teaching them and their parents a thing or two about community. Sound familiar? Yeah, it's basically R2P the Musical. And since this show is leading off R2P's 10th Season, we're doing something a little different, and the charismatic conman will be played by R2P's own artistic director and resident charismatic conman Joey Steinhagen. Since the romantic lead opposite Harold Hill obviously can't be played by a teen, Marian the Librarian will be played by Lynn Craver, artistic director of one of our favorite sister organizations, Opera Ithaca. All other roles will be played by R2P company members. The show will be directed and choreographed by R2P favorite Tucker Davis. All grades. Performances January 13-15.

    ALL IN THE TIMING: A collection of some of the smartest and outrageously funny one-act plays spanning typewriting monkeys, love in fake-language class, and the worst-turned-best first date. All grades. Performances February 24-26

    JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT: For our show that features the youngest half of our company, it’s a non-stop genre-switching smash that manages to incorporate every musical style from 50’s rock to country/western to 60’s go-go to French torch song – all while telling a familiar and colorful story. Grades 6-9. Performances May 12-14.
  • Is there a way for me to read the script or hear the music ahead of time?
    Sure. We have copies at the Just Be Cause Center (1013 West State St/MLK Jr. St. in Ithaca – directions). Email joey@runningtoplaces.org or call/text 607-216-8750) to make arrangements to borrow materials.
