Auditions for Hairspray The Musical - Seminole Theatre Players


Auditions for Hairspray The Musical - Seminole Theatre Players

The Seminole Theatre Players is calling auditions for roles in the production of Hairspray, the musical, and we want to see YOU in the show!  All ages, types, and experience levels are encouraged to audition.   There are two days of open calls - you only need to attend ONE day of open calls.  

  • Tuesday, May 23 7:00-10:00pm at the Seminole Theatre

  • Wednesday May 24 7:30-10:30pm at Lucky's Saloon for Karaoke Open Call 

After open calls, you may be invited back to callbacks on Thursday, May 25th at the Seminole Theatre from 7:00-10:00pm.


Hairspray is a diverse show set in inner city Baltimore in the 1960s.  Actors of all ages, race and body type are encouraged to audition.  Due to the nature of the show, some roles are specific to certain ethnicities and to respect the nature of the play, we will make best attempts to cast as such.  For a full breakdown of roles, click HERE.

Audition Guidelines
For Wednesday's Karaoke open call, be prepared to sing in a karaoke setting at Lucky's Saloon, just down the street from the Seminole Theatre.  No sheet music is required, just bring yourself, your friends, and maybe pick up some liquid courage at the bar.  If you're interested in being in a show, but not sure how to audition - this is a great way to get your feet wet and have fun.

Musical Guidelines

Choose a song that you are comfortable with and one that shows off your strength - it does not have to be from a musical. If you are called back on Thursday, we will teach you a song and a dance number from the show.
