General Audition Directions



You do not need to prepare anything for the auditions, everything will be provided for you at that time. Try not to be nervous. -- It will all be okay!





Auditions are held in Loyola High School's Berendo Music Building in Room M4. Make sure you go to the correct building.  




Arrive to the Berendo Music Building and head to the Green Room (Room M6).  You should be fifteen to twenty minutes early.  Arriving before the time you signed up for on Tuesday, September 3 or Wednesday, September 4 will help you be better prepared as there is a lot to do before you actually begin your audition. 

Our Stage Managers will be there to check you in.  They will also be there to help you if you had trouble with any of the online forms.   Bring your laptop if you have had trouble with the online forms.  Only one computer will be available, but the stage management team will help you complete them.  


At Auditions, a printed copy of the "Consent To Treatment Form" will be available, and you will need to take it home and return it if you are needed at Callback Rehearsals.  This form must be returned signed by your parents or you will be ineligible to be cast.  




The stage managers will usher you into the Black Box (Room M4) when it is the appropriate time.  The only thing you have to worry about is having fun and doing whatever the panel asks you to do!


A typical audition begins with a quick warm-up of some kind.  Then,  you will be asked to work on a reading with a partner from your audition group.  You will then be asked to return with your partner to present it for the auditioners with no less than ten minutes preparation. Your total time at the audition may be as much as forty-five minutes.



After eight o’clock on Wednesday, September 5, log on to www.hannontheatre.com to see the callbacks list and final cast list.  If your name is on the Callbacks List, you will need to return to the Berendo Music Building at 4:00 on Thursday, September 6.  

If your name is not on the Callbacks List, unfortunately, we will not be able to cast you in this production.  

Callbacks will be tailored to the needs of the auditioners.  Have fun and relax!




When you get home on Thursday, September 5,  the final cast list may have been posted.  It is guaranteed to be posted by 11:00 pm that evening. If there are discrepancies in the paperwork, Mr. Wolfe may need extra time to complete casting.


When it has been posted, read the cast list at www.hannontheatre.com.   

If you are cast, IMMEDIATELY accept your role by e-mailing Mr. Wolfe at wwolfe@loyolahs.edu.  If you need to decline at the last moment, make sure that you e-mail him concerning this decision as well.  


Reminder:  At the bottom of your audition form, you should have checked one of the boxes regarding your casting preference.  If you’d like to talk to Mr. Wolfe about your casting, you will need to email him and set up an appointment for the following week.


If cast, you will need to attend the second cast meeting on Monday, September 10 at 3:45


If you are not cast, please know that Mr. Wolfe and the whole Hannon Theatre Company thank you for your audition. 


Although it is not necessary for you to do so before auditions, if you are curious about the play for which you are auditioning, you may read it HERE.  You will need a password to access it.  The password will be sent with this week's edition of HTC Weekly, published and sent to you via email every Thursday evening.  If you sign up for auditions and your email address did not get added to the mailing list, email Mr. Wolfe at wwolfe@loyolahs.edu to have him add you.
