Auditions

VLOG produces a wide variety of events of many different genres: cabarets, musicals, straight plays and staged readings. The exact mix in any given calendar year depends in large part upon the interests and inclination of its membership.

Our main stage productions generally tend toward fully staged classical and contemporary Broadway musical theater, as well as operettas of Gilbert & Sullivan and the like.

Our cabarets and smaller performances are held in less formal, more intimate settings and are intended to showcase our members’ vocal talents.

Although VLOG is a non-Equity, membership company, auditions for all roles, including all principal roles, are open to everyone. Once cast, all performers are required to become dues-paid members of VLOG. All events are cast only from those who attend an audition in person – pictures and resumes are not accepted by mail or any other method. VLOG is actively committed to diversity in casting and encourages performers of all ethnicities and gender identities to audition.

Please note that none of our performers are paid since we are a volunteer company.

Ensemble rehearsals are usually held two evenings during the week, with additional rehearsals for principals scheduled at other times.

VLOG is also seeking a diverse membership of backstage and behind the scenes creatives and volunteers. If you are interested in participating in a non-performing capacity, you are encouraged to come to any audition night to let us know your interests and to meet with members of the company.

To get involved, please email membership@villagelightopera.org!
