Upcoming Auditions

2024-2025 Season Auditions

Each year, SCCT holds two general auditions. One is in the spring after the upcoming season is announced, and another is in the early fall when the new season is underway.

Actors only need to attend one of these general auditions. Callbacks for each show occur closer to when those specific shows begin rehearsals. After you audition, you will be notified if you are called back for specific shows.

audition Date

Though we are holding TWO general audition dates for your convenience, you only need to attend ONE:

First General Audition: Saturday, April 6, 2024, from 1:15 pm to 8:00 pm.

Second General Audition: We will announce this date after the summer break.

You only need to attend one of these general auditions to be considered for any/all shows in the season. We’re holding two generals because it gives everyone two different audition options based on your availability. No matter which audition date you attend, you will be considered for any/all shows in the season that have not yet had callbacks (dates will be published on the website).


Audition appointments for the second round of general auditions are not yet open for registration.

Video submissions

Can’t make it to our general auditions? No problem! We accept video auditions on a rolling basis throughout the season. Please refer to the guidelines provided here for submitting video auditions.

Audition Preparation:

To be considered for a musical, please prepare a 16-32 bar cut of a song – review our guidelines for auditioning for a musical here.

If you do not wish to be in a musical, please prepare a 60-90 second monologue of your choosing or use one of these options.
