Skylight Music Theatre: Auditions for Little Shop of Horrors

Skylight Music Theatre is accepting video submissions for their fall production of Little Shop of Horrors.

Skylight is an Equity, SPT 8+ theatre and encourages people of all races, ages,
ethnicities, abilities and gender identities to apply. Skylight is committed to a policy of
equal employment opportunities; to being a positive model of diversity and to the
elimination of discrimination in theatre.
We are planning to produce this show live on stage, with a combination of Zoom rehearsals until tech and in-person rehearsals starting at tech. The team at Skylight has created a safety plan to
minimize risk for our artists and our audience. The plan includes wearing masks in the
theater; socially distanced scenic design and staging; health screenings and weekly
COVID testing, among other protocols. The entire safety plan can be provided upon
request.
