Monstersongs Auditions

Franklin Footlight Theatre is thrilled to announce auditions for our fall production of MONSTERSONGS!


Auditions for this production are by video submission only. Submissions will be accepted August 7th-30th. We may reach out to you with a request to see more from you based on your initial submission, so don’t hesitate to submit early!



Monstersongs is an immersive song cycle about the world of monsters, featuring music by Rob Rokicki and illustrations by David O’Neill. Perfect for the spooky season!

Listen to the cast album here: Monstersongs-spotify


Please prepare a short video of yourself performing a verse and the chorus from a song of your choice. We are most interested in seeing something “mixy” in a pop or rock style. Please also introduce yourself at the beginning of your video, and indicate which role(s) you are interested in.


Not familiar with the show? We highly encourage you to listen to the soundtrack and see which song or character resonates with you the most. Our music director, Chris, would love for interested auditioners to reach out to her for song suggestions!



Please fill out our audition form online here: Monstersongs Audition Form

You may upload your audition video via the form, or email it to us directly at



Performances are at 7:30pm October 27-29 and 2:00pm October 30 at the Franklin Opera House in Franklin, NH



At most, we rehearse Tuesday and Thursday from 7:00pm-9:30pm and Sundays from 6:00pm-9:00pm starting in September. Not all actors will be called to every rehearsal: due to the nature of this show, it will have a relatively low rehearsal commitment. All actors should be available every night of tech week.


The Footlight Board has decided to require vaccinations for Covid-19 for all participants eligible for vaccination at this time, in order to both keep everyone safe, but also to give the best chance of getting through the production dates without an outbreak amongst the cast that would force us to shut down. Health and safety is our top priority. We will continue to monitor the situation based on information provided by the CDC and DHHS in terms of guidelines. This includes masks being worn, and always encouraged if an individual feels more comfortable wearing one, as well as potential postponement if a surge dictates that is the best course of action.
