AUDITION F.A.Q.s (for mainstage roles AND internships):
What should I prepare for an audition? To be considered for our musicals, please prepare 16 bars of two songs (you must provide your own sheet music, clearly marked with cuts). We may ask for just one, we may ask for both, and we may ask for more of the same song or a different song! Please be sure to bring your full book of music.
To be considered for a non-musical play, please prepare a brief (1-2 minute) COMEDIC monologue.
"I am not able to attend your auditions in person. Do you accept video auditions?" Sorry, but we do NOT accept video submissions as the only audition. We prefer to see people in person first. However, we may ask that you video a callback with material we would supply (other than dance callbacks, which must be done in person).
When will we be notified of a callback? While many callback notifications are given the day of auditions, we also may need a few days to put our heads together. If we need to see more, we will contact you usually within a week of the audition, either by phone or email.
When is casting complete? When can we expect to be notified of a job offer? Our auditions continue at various locations thru mid-March. We may begin making offers early on, but casting will continue until all auditions are complete...and later! Typically, we are done with most of our casting by mid to late April. We typically see over 2,000 people at our auditions, so it is impossible to contact everyone as to whether they have been cast or not. We only contact people we are interested in hiring, but we encourage everyone to audition in the future - it might just not have been your year! (Also, we almost never cast without a callback first so that's something to keep in mind.)
If offered a job, is housing provided? Yes, if you are not a local actor, we do provide housing.
Do you pay your actors? We are a professional company and as such, we do pay all our actors. There are different pay ranges, depending on if you are in our Intern, Student or Jobbed In Companies. Please see the Performing Intern page on this website for more info about that company. Our Student Company is for actors who are still pursuing their studies in colleges or universities. The Jobbed In Company are actors who have graduated college.
Do you consider everyone who auditions for all the shows or just one? All roles in all shows are open at the time of auditions. Bring your A Game, shine like the top of the Chrysler Building, and let us figure out where you fit best in our season! Our audition form will allow you to tell us of any conflict dates you may have with our season.
Are there Equity Contract available? We are on a Guest Artist Tier III contract with Equity, so there may be one or two Equity contracts available for the summer. These are typically held for leading roles and/or for more mature/character actor roles.
Do you give Equity points? No, sorry - because we are on a Guest Artist contract, we are not allowed to give points. However, if pre-arranged with your learning institution, we can give college credit for your work with us.

OUR TOWN: by Thornton Wilder
STAGE MANAGER: male or female, any age: appealing, steady, even-handed, benevolent host of the play and the dramatic equivalent of an omniscient narrator.

MRS. GIBBS: (45-60) enduring, justly and appropriate, calm, appreciative and caring mother to her children and wife to Dr. Gibbs. Although content in Grover’s Corner she still desires to see Paris. Suggests the importance of seizing the opportunities life presents, rather than waiting for things to happen.
MR. WEBB: (45-60) Emily’s loving father and a caring husband, the publisher and editor of the local paper, the Grover’s Corners Sentinel. Good sense of humor. Kindly, demonstrative and sympathetic. Reports to the audience in Act I which is both informative and interactive. Has a well-informed interest in Napoleon.
MRS. WEBB: (45-60) Emily’s mother and Mr. Webb’s wife. No nonsense kind of person - innocent, caring, a little coarse-around-the-edges, somewhat anxious, hardworking and tolerant.

WILLIAM SAUNDERS / FRANK SINATRA. (30’s – 40’s) William is a Texas Real Estate Tycoon who is drunk at the bar, when he is “taken over” by the ghost of Frank Sinatra.

2018 Technical Intern Program
Cortland Rep has four technical interns in our summer program. In each department, knowledge of the basic skills is helpful, which our staff will work with the interns to refine over the course of creating 6 mainstage productions and one children's show. Interns will learn the balance of working in a very quick paced environment while creating high quality and detailed theatrical elements.
At this time, we are only accepting applications for the Scene Shop Internship. The other internships have been filled for our 2018 Summer Season.
- Properties Intern: This intern has the opportunity to work with a professional Props Designer and Artisan. He/She will work learn many “tricks of the trade” from our staff, assisting in the building / borrowing / pulling-from-stock all props and set decoration - from large furniture pieces and soft goods, to smaller hand props, edibles, paper goods and everything in between. It is helpful to have basic working knowledge of upholstery, foam carving, scenic painting, machine and hand sewing, Powerpoint and other computer photo programs...and have a great creative instinct!
- Scenic Shop Intern: This intern will work with our professional Technical Director and Scenic Designers, as well as Assistant TD and two Carpenters. He/She will work building and installing all the sets for all productions. In this quick paced environment, this intern will learn how to build scenic elements that are sturdy, strong and safe, but are also quick to install and strike. A solid working knowledge of all typical power tools is helpful; basic knowledge of scenic painting is a plus.
- Assistant Stage Manager/Assistant Company Manager: The ASM/ACM will act as the Stage Manager for our children’s show, and as ASM on all mainstage shows, attending rehearsals and working backstage. He/She will be in charge of the backstage running crew, which will consist of actors in the show and possible local assistants. This is perhaps the busiest job of the summer, but the only staff member who works directly with all show directors, designers and crew. Key traits are organization, strong people skills, problem-solving abilities and a tireless love of the theatrical process.
- Costume Shop Intern: This intern has the opportunity to work with our professional Costume Designers and Supervisors, taking part in the build of all the costumes for our entire season. Our shop builds from scratch, pulls from our considerable stock and borrows from local community members. A good working knowledge of hand and machine sewing, patterning and fabric dying is helpful. There are some long hours ahead, but the time spent is reflected in the quality costumes seen up close in our intimate, 250 seat theatre.
Per diem pay is $150.00 per week. Housing is provided. To be considered for a technical internship, please e-mail a cover letter, resume and at least three references with phone numbers and email addresses to Eric Behnke, Production Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the position you are applying for in the subject line. There is no formal application to complete. No phone calls, please. If we are interested in speaking with you further about an internship, we will contact you to arrange a phone interview (or in person, if you are in the Central New York or New York City area). No phone calls, please. Please see more information about the theatre and our intern programs on the information page for our Performing Intern Program. CRT's Intern Programs are supported, in part, by The Triad Foundation and The Tiger Baron Foundation

Below please find information about Cortland Rep's Performing Intern Program. If you are interested in becoming a Performing Intern at CRT, we MUST see you audition in person. Please check the Audition section above for updates on dates and places. (There will be a form to fill out at the auditions upon which you can state your interest in our intern program - there are no additional applications beforehand.) Again - There is no written application for our internships, but we do require you to audition in person. Websites, YouTube clips or DVD auditions are useful to add after your initial audition, or to serve as a reminder to us of your abilities; however, we rarely (meaning, never!) hire anyone without seeing them audition first in person. Our intern program offers significant performance experience, and we look for strong performers who can handle a busy, tiring schedule. We audition our interns just as specifically as we do our mainstage professional actors. We are looking for not only good performers, but hard workers and people who are dedicated to the "quality of the end result." Have no doubt – you will work hard, you will learn a lot, and when you finish your stay with us, you will have built a strong resume and have a better understanding of how a professional theatre works.
Questions and Answers
How many interns will there be?
We are hiring 9 Performing Interns for the 2018 summer. We also hire Technical Interns in the Scenic, Costume, Properties and Stage Management Departments. See more information about the Technical Interns in the section above.
Interns are offered a weekly stipend of $150.00. We also reimburse your travel to get to Cortland at the beginning of the summer, up to $100.00 (with the presentation of travel receipts).
Housing is provided, and will be in off-campus apartments connected to the State University of New York - Cortland campus. Almost all the actors in the mainstage company are housed in the same building, with the technical crew housed just a short distance away. All the bedrooms are single rooms, but you will share the apartment (kitchen, bathroom and living space) with 2 other members of the intern company. Laundry facilities (coin operated) are located in the basement. Housing is about an 8 minute walk to downtown Cortland, our downtown offices and our rehearsal site. However, a car is GREATLY useful because the grocery store is about a 5 minute drive and the theatre itself is about a 20 minute drive. (Transportation will be arranged if you do not have access to a car). Because this is college housing, we will move out mid-August, to be relocated to private homes of our Guild and Board members. They have been doing this for years and are very welcoming.
What are the dates of an internship?
You must be able to arrive no later than May 21, 2018. Rehearsals begin on May 22. Our season runs until September 8; however most intern contracts will end before that (most around August 11) so that you can return to school. We are somewhat flexible with the contract ending date, as long as it does not conflict with performance dates.
Can I get Equity points?
CRT operates under a Guest Artist contract with Actors’ Equity Association and so, by Equity ruling, unfortunately can not offer points towards an Equity card.
Can I get college credit?
Assuming your college will allow this, we are happy to work with you and your department to arrange college credits for your internship with CRT.
What is entailed in a CRT performance internship?
CRT's Performing Internship is primarily focused on performing. All the performing interns will be in at least two mainstage shows (our two large-cast musicals) and our children’s show. In true summer stock fashion, these will happen at the same time, which means you may be rehearsing a show during the day and performing a different show at night.
Where possible and appropriate, our interns are considered for leading roles as well as ensemble parts. Over the years, some of CRT's past interns have played such roles as Paul, Mark, Val, Maggie and Larry in A Chorus Line, Baby John, Chino, Graziella and Velma in West Side Story, Cosette and Marius in Les Miserables, Munkestrap, Jennyanydots and Mr. Mistoffelees in Cats, and Frenchie, Jan, Patti, Doody, Sonny, and Eugene in Grease. Others have had featured ensemble roles in Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, 1776, The Addams Family, Chicago, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
In 2018, principal and ensemble intern roles are available in Saturday Night Fever, Newsies, Our Town, and Women in Jeopardy!. Also, our interns comprise the cast of this year's children's show Dorothy Meets Alice.
What other duties are there? Is there tech work involved?
The entire company - mainstage actors and interns alike - assist with strikes and change-overs. These happen directly following the last performance of the run of the show, typically about 9:30 PM to midnight. Then we have a dinner provided by our Theatre Guild, after which you are free to go. Also, the intern company is responsible for the set-up and take-down of the set and costumes for each children's show performance. Occasionally, you may be asked to work backstage as running crew or as a dresser during the run of a show that you are not performing in. However those duties will be arranged so as not to conflict with your rehearsal schedule. But - that's it! There are no shop hours or cleaning the bathrooms duties...!
We also request that all interns participate in our weekly Friday Night Talk-Backs with our audience, any publicity events or interviews, or other such duties as assigned (including the occasional Instagram Take Over!)
There is one day off a week, which varies depending on the show schedule of that week.
You get two comp tickets for each show in which you are performing.
Are there workshops?
Due to the very busy rehearsal and performance schedule, workshops are tricky to fit in. However, many of our directors and choreographers are happy to hold audition, acting or dance classes when possible. If arranged, these workshops will be at times so as not to conflict with rehearsals or performances.
Can I bring my pet?
No sorry, absolutely no pets are allowed.
Thanks again for your interest! If you have any other questions, drop us an email. Please do not call. Good luck!
