The Phantom Tollbooth, Jr.

Welcome to ACT's 2012 Collaboration with Arlington Center for the Arts.

We will be updating this page throughout the production, so be sure to check back here and refresh or reload your browser to make sure you are getting the latest information.


Auditions will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 11th and 12th from 5:30–7:30 PM at Arlington Center for the Arts. There are a few things we need you to do to prepare:

First Rehearsal

Our first rehearsal will be Monday, September 17th at 5:30 PM at ACT. We would love to have all parents attend our parents meeting at the same time. We need to recruit Committee Heads for Cast Party, T-shirts, Publicity, Tickets/box office, Raffle, Program, Costumes/makeup, Props, Sets, Bake Sale, and Run Crew.

We look forward to seeing you then.

As is now our standard policy, final casting decisions will not be made until after the first week of rehearsals. The staff will use this time to get to know the cast and explore the show.

Please note the rehearsal schedule for the show. Your child will not be required to attend every rehearsal, only those where they are called. You can look at the schedule links for last summer's productions to see how this works. Absences are strongly discouraged throughout the production, and attendance is mandatory from the beginning of dress rehearsals on, so please plan accordingly. All actors and at least one parent are also expected to attend the first meeting on Monday, September 17th, where we will share more details about the production and have sign-ups for volunteer committees.

All payments or payment arrangements must be secured before auditions. There are no refunds after the start of auditions. Although we sometimes have a waitlist, bringing actors into the production after auditions presents numerous challenges for the staff and does not give the late arrivals a fair start to the production.

Forms, etc:
