AUDITIONS

The Who, Where and When of Auditioning

We are so excited to remount The Hunchback of Notre Dame in March 2023 after it was interrupted March 13, 2020. This was a very long intermission that continued on while Meadowvale Theatre underwent extensive renovations. Understandably, not everyone from our original cast could rejoin us for this remounted production since so much time had passed. Therefore, we will be auditioning for a few select roles that are now available.

All candidates who would like to be considered for the following roles in CCMP's remounted production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame will be required to audition with prepared songs and will be required to participate in a dance call. 

If you have any questions, please contact us and we will be more than happy to help you.

Auditions are inclusive to everyone 16 years and older. Review the roles available and choose one that is right for you. Audition times are available by appointment in 5-minute time slots. You will receive a confirmation email ​after you book your audition.

  • Wednesday, September 14 and Friday, September 16 - 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

  • During the audition time slot each candidate will perform a memorized musical theatre song(s) 

  • All candidates are required to participate in a 20-minute dance call before or after their audition slot​
