In addition, a number of our actors have been awarded for excellent individual performances and had opportunities to travel to New York City for iTheatrics workshops and Choreography DVD filming after appearing at the festival.

You will be handed a JTF Code of Conduct and JTF Financial Agreement to sign in addition to your audition form. Please bring a headshot (or recent photo) and resume (if you have one) to submit with your audition form. Each of these will be posted to this page prior to auditions so you can complete ahead of time.

We will select and announce the specific shows prior to callbacks. The makeup and turnout of our JTF Company Auditions will help us determine which shows to select, so it is very important that you attend! If you have any conflict attending on March 23, please contact mandy@inspirationstage.com to arrange an alternate audition.

If you are planning to audition, please attend our JTF Information Session on March 6, 6pm-8pm.
