etc. Ambassadors (Auditioned ensemble)

Calling all 18+ actors (17 with permission), singers, dancers, musicians, composers, writers and directors !

Whether you are looking to perform in the show, are hoping to join us behind the scenes as part of the creative team, or looking to dabble in both, the etc. Ambassadors ensemble is here for you. Come audition!
Details below:
1. Audition date/time/location:
Auditions will be held on Saturday, September 16 between 2-4 P.M. in Suite 213 of the Noyes Cultural Arts Center, 927 Noyes St. in Evanston.
All interested in auditioning may simply sign up at our Facebook group ( event and/or e-mail director Mike O’Mara at: to receive a time slot that works for you!
Audition requirements:
The audition will consist of a monologue reading provided at the audition, as well as a prepared 32-bar selection of your choosing. The musical selection chosen may be of any style/genre, but keep in mind that we will be looking to do a comedy this time around, so upbeat and/or comic numbers preferred!
The audition will require you to bring in a sample monologue of your own creation, which will then be read by actors at the audition. If you are auditioning to be considered as a director of scenes as well, you will also be asked to quickly stage a short one-page monologue at the audition. Potential composers should prepare one song of their own composition for the audition; they may perform or provide sheet music for a provided accompanist.
If you wish to be a part of this ensemble and absolutely CANNOT make the September 16th audition date, don’t worry – we will accept e-mailed taped auditions as well! Just e-mail director Mike O’Mara at:
2. Fall rehearsals:
Saturdays 2-4 pm
3. Show Dates
December 8 – 10
Again, if you are passionate about auditioning and being a part of this ensemble but something in the above doesn’t work perfectly for you, let us know and let’s see if we can work it out!
4. Fee:
There will be a fee associated with this program. This fee will go towards paying our professional etc. staff (director/assistant director/choreographer), paying for materials (printing of scores/scripts, prop/costume items, etc.), and to help pay the rent on our studio space this summer.
The fee for this session will be $250.00 a person.
However, in cases of financial need, this fee may be alleviated by working towards the balance through assisting with other needs at etc. Music School.


We hope to see you audition for the Ambassadors this fall!
