Audition

Every summer, Park Playhouse produces three musicals - two that will be performed in July and August on our Albany Medical Center Stage in Albany's beautiful Washington Park, and one that will be performed on the historic Cohoes Music Hall stage. We are interested in union and non-union talent for our July production; both strong dancers who sing & singers who move well, who are at least 18 years old. For our Park Playhouse II and Park Playhouse Kids programs, students ages 12-18 and 8-13, respectively, are encouraged to audition.
