Auditions are typically held on a Monday and a Tuesday evening, starting at 7:00 p.m. You do not have to attend both nights of auditions, but you are welcome to read both nights of auditions if you’d like. If callbacks are necessary, the director will schedule the date and time.
Audition appointments are not necessary unless you are unable to attend auditions on the regularly scheduled days and times. In that case, the Director may agree to schedule a separate audition appointment for you. This choice is entirely up to the Director.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. You do not need to have prepared monologues. Copies of the scripts for the current season’s plays are available at the Downtown, Lacey, and Tumwater branches of the Timberland Library. You may ask for a copy of the script at the information desk. Scripts are only available for use at the library and may not be checked out.
Headshots and resumes are welcome at auditions, but are not necessary.
Rehearsals are typically Monday through Thursday. Additional rehearsals and/or the rehearsal schedule are at the Director’s discretion. Performances are typically Thursday through Sunday; Sunday is the only matinee.

The Wickhams Christmas at Pemberley, set in December of 1815, is a companion piece to OLT’s 2019 production of Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley. This delightful Regency romance tells the story of what is happening “below stairs” in the Pemberley servant’s quarters while the Darcys are hosting a family Christmas. As the events of “Miss Bennet” are unfolding upstairs, the servants find themselves in the middle of a different holiday scandal. An unwelcome visitor has stumbled in the hall in the middle of the night — Lydia’s incorrigible husband (and Darcy’s nemesis): Mr. Wickham. The faithful servants must balance their holiday preparations with the daunting task of keeping Wickham confined and the search for a secret letter which may finally bring him to justice.
