Auditions for our next production, Beauty and the Beast, JR, will be announced once scheduled. The search for a suitable venue is currently underway.
In the meantime, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how you'd like to participate.
Our productions are designed for special needs adults and teens combined with Partner Actors who support our actors. Partner Actors are fundamental to the success of My Turn Theater's productions and we would like to fill our stage with Partner Actors who are supporting and nurturing our special needs actors as they explore a new world of live theater.
Please consider joining our theater family and being a part of something truly amazing!

We're glad to see you! We want you to feel comfortable and know that you are with friends. This is YOUR TURN for theater. Your turn to be on stage!
Auditions at MY TURN THEATER are only to decide what role is the right fit for you. There is room for everybody.
Once we begin rehearsals you'll be matched with a partner actor who will be with you always, offering support and help with your lines. If you need a partner to help you audition, just say so!
You'll never be alone. You're wonderful!
Our actors are individuals with or without theater experience who have developmental or physical disabilities.
Because our rehearsal schedule is just like all community theaters, it's very time intensive and youngsters just can't keep up so our actors are 18 years old an up. We've even had some who are 72 years of age.
Please know that theater is a commitment. When you audition you are agreeing to attend all rehearsals to which you are called which may be as often as three times a week and for the entire week of "tech week". If you cannot make it to all rehearsals, let us know and we'll try to work with you on that. But TECH WEEK there are no exceptions. You MUST attend tech week and all performances.
Always remember you are with friends. Relax and have fun.
You will arrive and, when it's your turn, you'll be asked to sing. Why? Because our shows are musicals and have a lot of singing in them. It's okay if you're not too great at it - we welcome everybody. But we do need to hear your voice so we know what role suits you.
What will you sing? We have a small selection you can choose from. You must sing one of them (unless you just don't want to sing at all). The reason we do it this way is that we have an accompanist present and they don't know every song in the world - and probably don't know your favorite song of the week. So it's just easier if we stick to a few songs everybody knows. Please choose one to sing: Happy Birthday, Jingle Bells, or Yankee Doodle Dandy.
If you don't feel comfortable singing alone just ask and we'll get you a partner to sing with you.
You will go with your group and meet the choreographer. That's the person who will be teaching you the dances for the show . Right now she'll just show you a few simple steps.
You will be measured for your costumes. The costumer will need to know what sizes you'll need.
