The Forum Theatre Company is holding auditions for its 2014-2015 season from 7 to 10 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at the theater, 147 S. Hillside.

People interested in auditioning for musicals should prepare two music theater songs, one a ballad and the other an up-tempo piece. A pianist will be provided.

Those auditioning for non-musicals will not have to sing and will be provided with a monologue or scene to read.

All participants are asked to bring a resume and head shot. Call Kathy Hauptman at 316-618-0444 to schedule an audition date and time.

People who have previously performed with the Forum Theatre Company do not need to participate in the first round of auditions. Contact Hauptman to sign up for callbacks, which will be at 7 p.m. Aug. 4.

The 2014-15 season includes the following shows:
