Theater Marquee Lights


Auditions for the RBT season are held primarily at the beginning of each season, but also periodically throughout the season. Auditions for the 2021 season have come to a close. Please refer back to this page in the Winter of 2021 for audition updates for the 2022 season.

2021 Season Auditions

The Round Barn Theatre of Nappanee, IN is seeking musical theatre performers to fill paid-positions for our 2021 season. Please see the info below for types of contracts and production dates and schedules. All auditions will be accepted via video submission. Callbacks will be scheduled by in-person appointment (if available) beginning in January of 2021. To submit, please visit the bottom of page and click "Submit Audition". Please submit auditions before Friday, January 22.

Contract Offerings:

Core Cast: The Core Cast will be contracted for 45 weeks (beginning in March and going to December 31, 2021). Being a member of the core cast doesn't necessarily mean you'll have a lead each show, but it means you'll be contracted in each show. While for most shows a core cast member will be acting, it is possible to have a different assignment (ASM, Crew, Etc). A core cast contract would receive a weekly pay rate and some of the contracts would include housing. Note, we're still finalizing housing details for 2021, so we're unsure on how many we will be able to house at this time. We'll continue to give updates on housing throughout the casting process.


Non-Core Cast: Non-Core cast members will be essential for the casting of each show. While this position does not include housing, it does include a stipend that will be paid per-show performed. Again, this doesn't mean that you wouldn't be considered for a lead, etc. Think of this more as an "A La Carte" contract, where you could have a few different shows booked, but not all 6. This contract is just a bit more flexible.

Child Contracts: RBT will be seeking 5-6 children for "When Calls the Heart" and "A Musical Christmas Carol". Please follow the instructions to submit an audition above.

Please note: The roles of Quasimodo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Jo March in Little Women have been filled.
