Crane River Theater is excited to announce the Audition Sites for our upcoming 2014 Season.


We are looking for actors, designers, stage managers, technicians and education directors.

The 2014 Spring Show, The 39 Steps, will begin rehearsals on March 10th and conclude on May 5th.

The 2014 Summer Season will begin rehearsals on May 25th and conclude on August 12th.  Productions include Almost Maine, Shrek the Musical and Footloose


Crane River Theater will be attending auditions across the Midwest to assemble the 2014 Company.  Look for us at the American College Theater Festival in Lincoln, United Professional Theatre Auditions in Memphis, Midwest Theatre Auditions in St. Louis and locally in Kearney, Nebraska.  With more than two thousand auditioning last year, Crane River Theater was able to cast many talented actors, designers, and technicians from ten states.  Over 3,800 regional professionals, faculty and students were exposed to Kearney as an area arts center creating an awareness of Kearney’s performing arts venues.  We are excited once again to bring in artists from across the country to assemble the highest quality productions.  If you are interested in auditioning, but are unable to attend any of the listed auditions, please email us or call us at 308-627-5796.
