General Audition Information


Thank you for your interest in joining our community! We want this to be the best possible experience for everyone, so we ask that you review our general requirements for our audition process. At ASH, being part of a show is a commitment – to the theatre and to your fellow cast members. Teamwork is essential and we expect the following commitment from our cast members:


Scheduling & Conflicts


We ask that you consider that theatre is a time-intensive commitment, requiring that you prioritize your schedule according. Please do not audition if you do not plan to accept a role if offered to you. If you are planning to audition for another show which might interfere with your commitment to the one at ASH or if you have known conflicts for rehearsal or performance dates, you must notify the theatre of these conflicts at the audition. Part of what the theatre relies on is your commitment, your word, that you will fulfill your obligation, once you are cast. Without that assurance the theatre cannot continue to operate. Preliminary rehearsal schedules for all productions will be listed with audition notices.

Commitment & Concentration


You must be able to bring a sense of focus and concentration to rehearsals and performances, leave your everyday concerns and personal issues outside and be willing to fully engage in the production process. We need your imagination, creativity, and inspiration in order to make our show a success. Negative energy only diminishes a creative atmosphere. 



If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Anthony at anthony@ashtheater.org

ASH Theater Company's Junior Theater Program

Auditions: March 25th & 27th 

Ridge Avenue United Methodist Church

7811 Ridge Avenue Philadelphia PA 19128 

The program is designed for ages 8-18. Students ages 6-8 may register for our junior ensemble group. The junior ensemble will participate in basic theater training and perform in only a select number or scenes. Students interested in stage crew should also register.

Frozen JR. is based on the 2018 Broadway musical, and brings Elsa, Anna, and the magical land of Arendelle to life, onstage. The show features all of the memorable songs from the animated film, with music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, plus five new songs written for the Broadway production.


There is a $50 registration fee due at the first rehearsal. 

Tuition - $200 per performer, $100 for junior ensemble and stage crew

We never want cost to prevent a student from joining. Tuition can be paid through fundraising or sponsorships. Please reach out to Anthony - anthony@ashtheater.org for any concerns. Discounts available for families with multiple students participating. 


What do I need to prepare for my audition?

Please prepare a 1 full song and 1 monologue under 1 minute. You may be asked to only sing a portion of the song at your audition. Please remember that you are auditioning for the program not just the show. Please see auditions slides here.

Does the song/monologue need to be from the show?

No. You can prepare any piece; however, please be sure that the song/monologue showcases your talents. 


When are rehearsals?

Rehearsals will be held every Monday evening, occasional Tuesdays for choreography and 1 Saturday/Sunday a month. Workshops will be held on separate days with a separate sign up. 

What if I can't make a rehearsal?

We allow a student to miss up to 3 rehearsals for planned conflicts. Mandatory rehearsals that cannot be missed are October 6, October 14-17 (Tech). Students must also be available for all performances (October 18-20, 24-27). 

Is there any tuition assistance? 

Our goal is to make art accessible to all members of the community. We never want the cost of our program to be a burden. If your child wants to participate, we will help you to make it happen. Tuition can be paid for through fundraising efforts or sponsorships. Discounts are available for family members (of the same household).

Where are rehearsals?

Rehearsals will be held at Ridge Avenue United Methodist Church at 7811 Ridge Avenue Philadelphia PA 19128. 

Where are performances?

All shows will be held at Venice Island
