Work With Us

We love working with talented people!
Born Yesterday, 2013

Producing theatre requires the talent and hard work of many dedicated people on stage and behind the scenes. We can't mount our shows without performers, stage managers, directors, lighting designers, choreographers, and more! Consider joining us at Big Noise Theatre! Opportunities for performers and production staff are listed below.



January 22 and 23, 7pm-10pm with Callbacks January 29, 7pm-10pm

Big Noise Theatre announces auditions for CHICAGO. In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap...until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another "Merry Murderess," Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the "American Dream": fame, fortune, and acquittal.

Directed by David Geinosky
Music Direction by Aaron Kaplan
Choreography by Kristine Burdi
