Audition Opportunities with Center Stage Players

Center Stage Players focuses on helping experienced actors hone and advance their theatrical and musical skills. This is an advanced study opportunity; we place high expectations on our students, and we demand their full commitments. However, our students gain significant expertise and critical on-stage experience. We are a great stepping stone for teens looking to build their resumes prior to formal college study and professional acting careers.

Upcoming Auditions

Center Stage Players present GHOST BIKE; a play by Laura Jacqmin. Show Dates: October 13 – 15 at Center Stage Theater – Naperville.

About GHOST BIKE: Ora and Eddie fell in love with Chicago on their bikes. But when Eddie is hit by a car and killed, Ora refuses to let him go. Instead, she rides beneath our city to bring him back, facing off against underworld gods and ghosts – some interested in helping her, some determined to get in her way. Chicago culture skitches off of Greek, African, and Chinese mythology, sparking a spirited mash-up of underworld and after-life as seen from the seats of fixies, BMX’s and ten-speeds.
