Traveling Troupe Auditions 2019

Traveling Troupe Auditions

Traveling Troupe is by audition only, for current 9th – 12th graders. Want to guarantee your spot at TPE this summer? Register for High School Ensemble before you audition—we’ll apply your tuition toward Troupe if you get in. 

Auditions are also open for Commedia Troupe.

While not all of Traveling Players’ alumni pursue theatre professionally, those that do have done quite well.  Our students have attended Yale, Emerson, Muhlenberg, NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, among other schools, often receiving artistic awards or scholarships.  Our alumni are currently working with the SITI Company, Trinity Rep, Shakespeare & Company and Cal Shakes.

What to Prepare

Please prepare a Shakespearean monologue (min. 14 lines).  Wear comfortable clothes so you can move around.  Auditions will include some improvisational games as well as cold readings from the play.  Please familiarize yourself with the plot and characters.  If you have not registered in advance, the audition fee is $60 at the door.  Bring a bagged lunch: we’ll have some snacks as well.  


Audition: Sunday, May 5, 
2 – 5 pm
Old Firehouse Teen Center
1440 Chain Bridge Road
McLean, VA 22101
