The Hudson Players are a true community theater. Thus all our shows feature volunteer actors and stage personnel. All roles in our productions are always open to auditioners, with no restrictions. For non-musicals scripts are usually available for perusal at the Hudson Library at least two weeks prior. Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script. For musicals, auditioners are asked to have a song prepared and to bring along appropriate sheet musical for the accompanist. Musical auditioners will also be asked to read from the script and in many cases shown a brief movement exercise. Those interested in working backstage, on sets, lights, etc, are encouraged to come to auditions as well and fill out a form letting the producer know their areas of interest. All auditions are held at the Barlow Community Center on Oviatt St in Hudson, typically at 7pm on Sunday and Monday evenings.
