Night of the Stars Auditions 

September 16-17, 2024, 4:30-8 pm
Performances: November 14-16, 2024

WHAT: Night of the Stars is an auditioned talent showcase featuring acts from performers all over Northwest Arkansas. The proceeds from this event go towards funding Lower Lights Theatre Company’s programs.

WHOWe invite performers of all ages to audition as individuals or groups, including:


  • Vocal performers (musical theatre selections, pop, Country, jazz, etc. Please no sacred music for this event)

  • Instrumentalists (strings, wind, brass, percussion, piano, guitar, ukulele, etc.)

  • Ensembles (bands, orchestras, choirs, dance troupes, etc.)

  • Theatre (perform a song or a scene from a show with your cast)

  • Entertainers (jugglers, magicians, comedians, sketch comedy, puppeteers, ventriloquists, jump ropers, etc.)

  • Dancers (ballet, hip hop, tap, Irish dance, jazz, etc.)

HOW: Each performer will prepare a family friendly act, from content to outfit to movement, for audition (see below). When choosing an act, please look for age appropriate material for the performer. Those selected will have the opportunity to perform that act on stage at the main event in November. 

WHEN: Open auditions will be held September 16-17, 4:30-8 pm. Come when you're ready and we'll hold auditions in the order that performers arrive and check in.

If selected, there will be no scheduled rehearsals, but there will be two REQUIRED tech/dress rehearsals to practice staging, entrances/exits, and sound/lighting cues. These will occur November 11-12, 2024.

WHERE: Both the auditions and the performances will be held at The Neighborhood Church at 2702 SW I St, Bentonville.
