“Hattiloo Theatre lives at the nexus of artistry, community, enduring tradition, and limitless possibility... and that's why it's my Hattiloo”
-Harry Lennix, actor


Hattiloo is always looking for new talent in all areas of performing arts. We usually hold public auditions for each of our major performances.

Please dress comfortably and come prepared to deliver a short monologue from a play of your choosing.

If you are auditioning for a musical, please be prepared to sing a verse of a song that demonstrates your vocal range and to perform a dance step. If you need musical accompaniment, please have your c.d. ready and let the attendant at the sign-in desk know that you have music and the selection number.
