• Audition for The Hudson Players


  • The Hudson Players is Truly a Community Theater

    We 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 music for the accompanist. Musical auditioners will also be asked to read from the script, and in many cases will be 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.


    Feel free to complete and print out the below audition form to bring with you to auditions.

    10M, 9F (approx) + ensemble


    Harold Hill, a smooth-talking salesman with a knack for deception, arrives in River City, Iowa, with a scheme to exploit the town's naivete. He convinces them to invest in instruments and uniforms for a boys' band he promises to lead, despite his complete lack of musical knowledge. His plan to pocket the money and disappear is thrown off course when he unexpectedly falls for Marian, the librarian.
