Arts Center of the Ozarks is a community theater, which means that all the actors who perform on our stage are people who live and work in the community who have a talent and interest in theater arts. Everyone from novice to the most seasoned actor is welcome to audition. From musicals to comedies, dramas, radio theater, and children’s productions, there’s a wide range of performance opportunities. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming audition.

Information about upcoming auditions will be updated on the schedule below on a regular basis. Those planning to audition for a play will be asked to read from a script. For musical auditions, come with a prepared song and be ready to take part in a dance audition.
