FAQs

 

How much do you pay?
It varies and is discussed privately at the time of offer.

Will we cast local?
Absolutely – it’s our focus.

Will you cast nationally and regionally?
We sure will!

Is there a % of local/verses non-local casting?
No.  That’s show dependent and talent/fit dependent.

Why are all the auditions being held in Spokane?
Based on venue needs, timing, and staff needs, this was best.

Where will rehearsals be?
As a nonprofit, we rehearse when and where we can for free. With the new (2015-16) season schedule being one that we could control, most shows will spend the majority of their time in the actual venue they will perform in- on its stage. On occasion we use a local church, the lobby of the Spokane venue or University High School in Spokane Valley, WA..

To be perfectly honest, locations in Spokane have been much more supportive when offering free locations to rehearse – this has actually been the biggest struggle in CDA. Thus, if someone has a way to remedy this in CDA please email me.  Thanks!

When and how long are rehearsals?
Typically, they last anywhere from 3 to 5 weeks prior to opening night. It various on cast size and availability.  The design team typically works during the day.  Therefore, most are 5 to 6 days a week from about 4pm to 11pm.

Do I need to audition for all plays AND for all musicals independently?
That is preferred.

What if I am only interested ion certain shows?
You will be asked that in your audition.

Why are you doing generals for the entire season?
This is common for many theaters to do.  Imagine knowing your entire schedule for the year! All those other shows you are wondering if you can audition for…  trips you want to plan… time of from work needed… Now you will know.  Also, we want to promote our talent for the season in blogs, web pages, and social media.  Finally, being able to cast in advance allows us to pre-plan marketing shots and playbills efficiently.

Do you house your out of town performers?
Yes, either with host families or in a private suite depending on availability.
