Auditions are usually held on a Monday and Tuesday evening two weeks before the first rehearsal.
Auditions differ for each production. Usually you will participate in an acting or movement warm up and then read selections from the script with other actors. Musicals will include a singing and dancing audition. We always try to make everything easy for newcomers as well as veteran actors. You will not need to prepare anything for an audition, but it can be helpful to have read the script beforehand. Call the theatre a few weeks before your audition to check out a script.
Yes! You should bring your calendar to every audition. Being a part of a production is a big time commitment. Casting decisions are based on many factors, including the scheduling availability of the actor. It is very important that you be honest and as completely forthcoming about all possible conflicts. This helps the director determine if you can be worked into the rehearsal schedule.
If you have a resume or headshot, you're more than welcome to bring them to the audition. However, most of our volunteers do not have one, and it's certainly not necessary.
Unless otherwise stated, cast lists are posted the Friday following auditions at noon. Cast lists will be posted on the SCT website, on the SCT facebook page, and on the south doors of the SCT Playhouse. If you have been cast in the show, please follow the instructions to let your director know that you accept the role.
Absolutely. Sometimes volunteers who can't commit to the production would like to go through the audition process to meet a new director or practice their auditioning skills. You are always welcome at an audition. If you are not interested in being cast, please clearly indicate this on your audition form and let the stage manager or director know right away.
