Auditions at the Very Little Theatre are open to all.

In any given season, and in any given production, you will find people who have been acting and honing their craft for decades, performing next to someone who is onstage for the first time – or the first time since they performed in Annie in middle school! VLT works to create an atmosphere where all levels of skills and knowledge are welcomed and appreciated.

For auditions, directors sometimes request a prepared one to two-minute monologue. This can be from any play, but you might find a favorite passage from a favorite book to memorize. It’s just something that gives the director a sense of how you carry yourself. Other directors will have short scenes from the upcoming play to hand out at auditions for what is called, a cold

If you are cast, you can look forward to 5-7 weeks of rehearsals, which usually take place in the evening, Monday through Thursday with an occasional Sunday. Shows at VLT usually run three weekends, Friday and Saturday evenings, with Sunday matinees and one Thursday evening performance in the last week.

If you are not cast, you might be invited to consider being on the crew – running lights or sound, or moving the set pieces around. These positions are essential to the success of each of our shows and helps create a cohesive team!

Thank you for your interest in VLT. You are welcome to join the family!

Minority Voices Theatre

MVT is proud to produce a weekend with illioo Native Theatre as we commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Klamath River fish kill with a reading of the play Salmon is Everything by Theresa May in collaboration with the Klamath Theatre Project.
The play follows the story of three families on the Klamath River during the drought, salmon crisis, and devastating fish kill of 2002. Its message about the kinship among salmon, people and the land is as relevant today – for all great rivers in the Pacific Northwest — as it was 20 years ago.
