General Info About OLT Auditions

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.

Olympia Little Theatre is a community theater and you need not have any previous experience, just passion and commitment!

Audition Scheduling

Audition announcements for our upcoming season will be posted here and to our Facebook page. Stay tuned for more information!

Auditions for Miss Bennet Christmas at Pemberley by Lauren
Gunderson and Margot Melcon will be held on Sunday, October 6th from
1-4 and Monday, October 7th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Olympia Little
Theater.

This charming play is a sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice,
but this time, bookish sister Mary is the heroine. When the family
gathers for Christmas at Pemberley, an unexpected guest sparks
Mary’s interest and her hope for independence, and possibly even
love.

Characters:
MARY BENNET (early 20s). Seen by her family as s plain and boring
future spinster,  Mary is actually  intelligent, curious, and
lively. She does not suffer fools quietly.

ARTHUR DEBOURGH (mid to late 20s). He is studious, unsociable and a
loner who prefers books to people.  He has recently inherited a
large estate, and has no idea what’s next.

ELIZABETH DARCY (20s) Married to Mr. Darcy, Lizzie Bennet is
charming, confident and witty. She is Mary’s elder sister.

FITZWILLIAM DARCY (30) he’s a loving, generous and smart, (if
slightly stiff) husband to Lizzie.  He is quiet and watchful and
sees what others miss. He knows what it’s like to be lovelorn.

JANE BINGLEY (20s). Also Mary’s elder sister, Jane is married to Mr.
Bingley,  and is seven months pregnant. She is sweet, optimistic and
kind.

CHARLES BINGLEY (mid-20s). Gracious and happy, he is married and
devoted to Jane.

LYDIA WICKHAM (17-19). She is flirtatious and self-centered.  Her
marriage to Mr. Wickham is a sham, but she will not admit it.

ANNE DEBOURGH (20s). An only daughter who has lived in her mother’s
large shadow, never speaking for herself. She is judgmental and
impatient.
