Chicago Auditions

Welcome to the Gilbert Players' AUDITIONING page.

Our next production will be CHICAGO, a fast-paced, electrifying and comedic story of passion, mayhem and murder — Quite the combination! One of America's most highly rated and longest running musicals will be stepping onto the stage of the Eagle Hill Cultural Center in Hardwick, MA.

Presented and directed by the Gilbert Players, this production will be in good hands following past productions such as The Producers, Shrek, Into the Woods, Little Mermaid, Peter Pan, Wizard of Oz, Anything Goes, Matilda, Beauty and the Beast, Jacques Brel and numerous others. Sold out performances are not uncommon so get your tickets early.

AUDITIONS for LEADS and CO-LEADS: Brief character descriptions can be found here.

Auditions are supportive and friendly. Pre-audition scripts and music can be had by request from Scripts and music will be provided at auditions as well as our company production pianist. If you are not familiar with the music, you may bring a selection of your own that is similar in music style. You will need to bring your own sheet music for this.

Come prepared to sing, read, and DANCE...or move well. Please bring comfortable, tight fitting shoes. It would behoove you to become familiar with the dance style moves of Bob Fosse. You may be asked to read for one or two parts as well as your requested role. I'm sure that you all have a favorite.

Callbacks (if needed) will be a week later and will be announced. Come prepared and confident. The Gilbert Players troupe are a very accomplished and fine tuned group of people. They are accepting of new people and look forward to their next challenge. We are looking forward to seeing some of our favorites and welcoming new members.

See you Monday, Sept. 26th at 6:30pm for all leads as listed here.
Sunday, Oct. 2nd at 4:00pm for all strong dancers, ensemble and smaller parts. Looking for 20 very strong dancers who can sing and singers who can move well MALE and FEMALE.
