The 5 & Dime is located at 112 E Adams Street in the heart of downtown Jacksonville, We hope to occasionally continue to perform different, frequently non-traditional venues – with a focus on the community of the Urban Core (Downtown, LaVilla, Springfield, Riverside, Avondale) of Jacksonville. Part of our mission is to show our community that art can and does thrive everywhere.

Most downtown areas have at some point in their history been host to a “5 & Dime” – that general store everyone delighted in popping into whenever they could to poke around and see what great bargain trinkets they could find. Those fond memories and that sense of community and nostalgia inspired our name. The correct name is “The 5 & Dime.” Our tagline is “a theatre company.”

The arts in Jacksonville are flourishing. In every nook of the city, there are passionate artists of all genres working to help make Jacksonville the exciting, cultured, and eventful place that its residents want and deserve. We seek to change the misconception that there is “nothing to do here.”  We seek to shake up the paradigm of how audiences expect that to be done.

GETTING INVOLVED

CONTACT US We are grateful for any assistance. Let us know how you would like to get involved and we will get back to you. The more, the merrier!

Sometimes. We don’t have a lot of storage space, but we frequently need help accumulating items for productions. The Jacksonville theatre community is very supportive and does share with other area theatres. If we don’t have the ability to store your particular donation, we suggest that you offer to one of the other theatres in town.

Sometimes. At this point, it is The 5 & Dime’s policy to allow the director of each production creative freedom to decide what particular casting process they prefer, and whether or not they would like to hold open auditions.

Due to our current structure of focusing on one production at a time, there is not a lot of advanced notice once auditions are set. (Only about a week or two). The best way to ensure you hear about any upcoming auditions is to SUBSCRIBE TO OUR MAILING LIST and follow us on SOCIAL MEDIA.

Any specific information will be in individual audition notice breakdowns but, in general…

REQUEST SIDES: We will make audition scenes available prior to the audition. In most cases the material is copyrighted so can not be linked to on our website, but if you send a request, you will be emailed a download link.

HAVE A RESUMÉ & HEADSHOT: These do not need to be professionally done, and the photo can simply be a small one printed in one corner of the resume, but please bring these with you to the audition! It shows you’re serious about your work and it is a HUGE benefit for the director to be able to quickly match names to faces and experience during a busy audition.

Maybe. The 5 & Dime is enthusiastic about developing new relationships with those who share in our mission of, “making change in Jacksonville.” If you have an idea on how we might work together, please CONTACT US

Maybe. The 5 & Dime is always on the lookout for new and interesting spaces in the Urban Core that we can transform for our productions. It does not have to be a theatre facility for art to be created there. So if you are interested, please CONTACT US

Let us know! CONTACT US with a description and any additional info you have on the show/ project.

The 5 & Dime is passionate about helping artists develop new works. We hope to be able to do more of this in the future. Check back for details on this soon.

Sometimes. If you are looking for entertainment for your special event, we may be able to work together. CONTACT US with your inquiry.
