Audition and Show FAQs

Bar None auditions take place April 4 from 5:30-7:00pm at the Arts District Mansion. Check the meetings sign just outside the elevator for the correct room.

Bar None is open to everyone in the Dallas legal community who wants to perform! Our casts include lawyers, judges, paralegals, other legal professionals, as well as their friends and family.

Not much, but it depends on how much you want to be involved.

  • If you want to be considered for a solo part in a song, come prepared to sing a song with sheet music, or a karaoke version of a song on your phone that you can sing along to. If you don’t have either of those, that’s okay; we’ll have songbooks available from which you can pick a song to sing. If you only want to sing in the chorus, no singing audition is necessary.
  • If you want to act, we’ll have Bar None scripts that you can read with some of our cast members.
  • If you are a dancer, come prepared to discuss your experience with our Choreographer. No dance audition is necessary.

Not at all – our auditions are low-key and informal.

We cast everyone who auditions, regardless of talent. The main reason we hold auditions is to get an idea of where to fit you in among our skits and songs.

We purposely hold auditions on Tuesdays, when the bar at ADM is open. Grab a drink and get to know us!

Rehearsals begin the first week in May and end June 10. We rehearse for 2-3 hours every Saturday and Sunday, and individual skits and songs are rehearsed for 30 minutes each Monday through Thursday in the early evening.

Depending on your level of involvement, you can expect to spend 6-8 hours/week during the first 4 weeks of rehearsals, and then 2-3 hours/day in the evenings the last two weeks before the show. The longest time commitment will be the weekend before the show; this is when we start full run-throughs of the show, so both Saturday and Sunday can be long days.

Bar None 2023 will be performed June 14-17 at the Greer Garson Theatre on the SMU campus. Showtimes are 7:30 on Wednesday and Thursday, 8:00 on Friday and Saturday.
