Thank you for your interest in auditioning at Limelight Theatre!

For more than 25 years, we’ve had the extreme pleasure of welcoming actors and actresses from the Northeast Florida area and beyond to our stage. They’ve brought with them a wealth of knowledge, insight, and passion — making a performance at the Limelight something audiences will not soon forget! 

We want you to be part of our story. Whether you are a seasoned performer or just starting out, there’s a place for YOU at Limelight Theatre. Give it a try!

Part of our role as a nonprofit performing arts organization and as theatremakers is to recognize and celebrate the differences in humanity that make us one. Theatre is a platform for building connection, empathy, and understanding — it gives a voice to those historically without one — it fosters a community. We are committed to creating a safe artistic atmosphere where the entirety of our community is represented and has a voice. Unless strictly and specifically mandated from the playwright, all roles are open and available to anyone regardless of race, color, or body type.
