Forge auditions are open to the public, no matter the level of experience, and are generally held on two dates in order to allow the most number of people to fit it into their schedule. Some directors prefer a prepared audition, others do cold readings from the script, still others may do both. Be sure to check the audition page for the specific show you are interested in for audition information. Please note: Forge is an all-volunteer organization. There is no compensation of any kind.
