The Cedar Falls Community Theatre holds open auditions 4-5 times per year. The audition process is usually pretty loose and informal. Actors auditioning do not need to bring a prepared monologue. The actors will read from the script used in the show. At auditions, actors will fill out an audition form with basic information that includes education, acting background, show experience and any arts, acting, dance or musical training. Audition dates are set by the director and the theatre for each show about four months before performance is to begin. Actual auditions are usually held about eight weeks before opening night of that particular show. Check the blog on the home page on a regular basis for information about shows coming up, including information about auditions.

FREE CELTIC MUSIC CONCERT!
"The Langer's Ball" Celtic Concert takes place on Saturday, March 28, at 7:30pm. Kris Reints & Gaylord Stauffer will provide some pre-show music. This is A Free Will Offering Only! Please show up for the fun and help the theatre.
As a duo, Michael & Hannah have been playing since 2007 and have played over 500 shows at various locations; including the Irish Fair of MN, the Iowa Irish Fest, Shamrock Fest in Kansas City MO and have opened for Toronto based Celtic rock band Enter The Haggis.
Their first release As I Roved Out (2008) was awarded a Special Mention for “Best Celtic Rock & Punk CD’s of ’08 from PaddyRock.com and they were hailed as “…A Band To Watch.” This was followed by Ships Are Sailing (2009) which took the band to a new level in the studio, featuring full band arrangements and some original songs; Ships Are Sailing got a #11 spot that year from PaddyRock.com and earned a Special Mention from Shite’n'Onions as a best of for 2009
The warm reception for the live release, along with Michael & Hannah’s need to rock inspired them to pick up the mantle of Irish punk rock and in late 2011, they met the right musicians for the job. Bringing in Derek Jaimes, a former drummer of fellow Celtic rockers, The Wild Colonial Bhoys, Drew Miller, Bassist & leader of the legendary Rock’n'Reel band Boiled in Lead, and Rockabilly guitarist Danny McDermott who has played with countless bands. Together these 5 re-worked the material the duo had been playing for years, bringing new energy and talent to the mix, as well as revisiting the songwriting and bringing new originals to the stage.
Music from The Langer’s Ball is regularly featured on podcasts from around the world such as Paddy Rock Radio, Shite ‘n’ Onions, Celtic Roots Radio, 67 Music, Marc Gunn’s Irish & Celtic Music Podcast, and many more.
