Auditions are usually held at the Magic Circle Theatre, unless otherwise posted. Experience is NOT necessary. All roles are open unless otherwise announced. Information packets with all information related to upcoming auditions can be picked up at the Magic Circle box office outside in the clear plastic cubby or can be found as a PDF in the Auditions schedule section on our website at least two weeks prior to auditions. Whether the audition is open to the public to observe or closed to just the directors and actors auditioning is up to the directors.
Through the songs of ABBA, we meet Donna, a single parent, feisty and independent who doesn't need a man to complete her life. Sophie is Donna's twenty year old daughter and is the true romantic, wanting the big white wedding, babies and romance. After finding Donna's diary, Sophie learns that Bill, Sam or Harry could be her Dad! With Sophie's wedding only hours away, who will give her away? Sam, Harry and Bill have been invited by Sophie but kept the invitation a secret from Donna.
A tiny Greek island, a wedding and the songs of ABBA have made this musical popular from the early 90's and Magic Circle will open the 60th Season with Mama Mia!

Following original audition dates, it is often necessary for directors to hold Call Backs to get a second look at an actor, hear another song selection, see how one would match-up with other actors, etc. A Call-Back does not mean that a specific actor is cast, but, it does indicate interest. Not being called back, does not necessarily mean that an actor is not cast.
Directors have their own vision in mind when casting their play, however, so much depends on what each individual actor brings to the audition in terms of preparation, commitment to the material, creativity and how they look. Each director has their way of notifying actors with regard to casting and they will inform actors at the auditions whether there will be a phone call and/or list posted outside the theater as well as on the website. Magic Circle Players strives to cast new faces and talent as much as possible, and we encourage anyone who is even a little bit intrigued about live theater to join the fun and audition for a show.
