CTA makes every attempt to provide a fair and equal audition opportunity for all actors that meet the age requirements of each production. No experience is required and selection is made entirely by the artistic staff and based solely on the performance that each auditioner presents on the day of auditions. Actors are cast based on their ability and suitability for the parts. Please email with any questions.
