Audition Information


You don't have to be Jewish to love Jewish Theatre Grand Rapids!

Auditions are open to everyone. You do not have to be Jewish to audition or get involved with Jewish Theatre. In fact, most of our actors and volunteers are of other faiths. No previous theatre experience is required.
