PAPA is Hosting open Auditions for......



We are so excited that you're here, this is a big show that needs all kinds of people! There are usually a lot of questions that come with wanting to be a part of a show. So we're going to do our best to answer them right here! If you have any additional questions to the ones answered below please feel free to email us at or call us at (360)244-1454.

When:  Saturday April 14 & Sunday April 15 from 1-4:00PM,  Monday April 16 from 4-7PM

Where: Fort Columbia Theater, Chinook Wa (On top of the tunnel) 

What will I be asked do? - You will be asked to read a short monologue, sing part of a song and do some simple movement!

What do I bring? - Feel free to just bring yourself and a friend! We will have monologues for you to choose and read from, unless you would like to bring your own family friendly one. There will be a small selection of well known songs you can sing, but feel free to bring a song to sing acapella or with your own music (we will have an aux cord for phones). We will also have an accompanist if you choose to bring your own sheet music.

Who can audition?  - The auditions are open, Beauty and the Beast requires a very diverse cast. Children are welcome and adults of all ages! (If you wondering if your child is old enough feel free to contact us directly). You do not need to be from a certain area or a member of PAPA to join in the fun!

Are any roles filled? - No! All roles are open and needed! There will be a special spot on the audition form if you want to make sure we know you would like to be Belle! Or the Beast...or Lumiere....or....

What if I can't make auditions but still want to be in the show? - We are more than happy to accommodate private auditions. Preferably before the listed audition dates, just call the number above or shoot us an email at and we will fit you in! 

Where are rehearsals? - Rehearsals will primarily be at Fort Columbia Theater in Chinook, WA. Some rehearsals early on (end of April and a bit of May) may be located in Long Beach or Ilwaco WA, exactly where is TBD. [We have shortened the length of how long we rehearse from previous years, and have added some handy helpul tools!]

When are performances? - We open the first weekend of July and close the first weekend of August. Friday, Saturday evening and Sunday matinee. Unless you are double cast you are needed at all performances. (We typically don't rehearse between performances just weekends of fun!)

If there isn't a good role for me, can I still help? - Yes! We would love for you to be apart of the family! We will need lots of help producing this show and there are many ways to be involved. Head on over to our "Get Involved" tab to see all the opportunities!
