The Performing Arts Youth Academy is open to children and teens ages 7-15, and is geared towards students who already have performing arts experience and ability, but all interested students are encouraged to audition. Auditions for PAYA 2022 will be held in April/May 2022. Students who would prefer to participate in our PAYA Technical Crew Academy don't need to audition. For more about PAYA, visit our Youth Academy page. 
"Participating in local community theatre has created a space for my creativity to run wild! Being part of a tight-knit theatre ensemble is the perfect embodiment of true hometown theatre. We create magic on-stage, happiness in the seats, and friendships all around. I am eternally grateful for the opportunities I have had to grow and develop my theater skills right here in the community where I live."

Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble
Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble encourages both seasoned performers and those new to the stage to audition for our productions. Everyone is welcome, and will find a home on our stage. On this page, you'll find information about auditioning for our main stage productions. While some of our main stage shows do include opportunities for younger performers, if you are under 18, you'll also want to check audition & training opportunities available through our youth academy, as described below.

Audition Calendar
The following audition schedule can help you plan for participating in our upcoming shows. Note that these are our planned dates, but that they are subject to change.
Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
Ghostlight Theatre Ensemble encourages all community members to participate in Ghostlight productions. We believe that local live theatre should provide a supportive environment for creative expression for people of all genders, ethnicities and backgrounds. Every day, we work to ensure that Ghostlight is a safe, welcoming space where all members of our cast, creative team, production crew, volunteers and audience members can learn, grow, and create.
We are proactively working towards greater diversity within the cast of our shows. This is an on-going process, and we recognize that it is our responsibility to broaden our reach to ensure that BIPOC and LGBTQ+ community members are aware of upcoming auditions, and to ensure that they feel welcome to join our productions. We are also broadening our reach to attract BIPOC directors and production team members. We know this can make a significant difference in generating greater diversity at our auditions.
  • FESTIVAL 10 - many of the roles in our play festival have already been cast, as we are performing most of the plays that had been planned and rehearsed in 2020 prior to the show's cancellation due to the pandemic. However, we do anticipate that there may be some roles that will need to be filled as some of the actors may have other obligations. As such, auditions are likely to be held in January for these unfilled roles.
