No experience, membership or fee is required to audition/perform with us.  Please download the audition form, complete it and bring it with you when you audition.  Copies of the form will be available at the audition.  [Download Audition Form] All auditions take place at The W.H.A.T. Theatre (in residence at the First Lutheran Church) 65 Oakwood Ave, Kearny, NJ. WHAT is currently auditioning for the following productions:


  • The Stinky Cheese Man [ February 7 & 8 7:00-9:00]  ALL ACTORS MUST BE 18+ YEARS OLD
    • About The Show:The award winning book comes to the stage, bringing a zany collection of “fairly stupid tales” to life. Our narrator Jack tries to keep a wild group of your favorite storybook characters in line before total chaos or a song breaks out. No need to hold your nose, this uproarious show mixes humor, music, and audience participation that will delight both children and adults.
    • Show Dates: The show will run April 5, 6, 12, & 13
    • About The Audition: All roles are comedic. Singing, improv or slapstick pratfalls is a plus. The show is made up of multiple quick scenes and has many roles (as many as 29 individual characters). There will be a minimum of seven actors (4 male and 3 female) with the number of multiple roles for each actor to be determined at the time of casting (expected to be 3 to 6 roles each). The number of actors may be expanded based on the makeup of those who audition. There are several choral and a few solo songs in the show. While singing ability will be considered, strong comic acting is preferred. Actors will be asked to sing the Hallelujah Chorus accompanied by recorded music (no preparation is required) and, in the spirit of the show, singing badly will not disqualify anyone. Sides will be provided, and will be used to judge the actor’s sense of material and not necessarily match the part(s) that will be played in the show.
