South Carolina Children’s Theatre holds open auditions for each of its productions at our new facility in downtown Greenville. This means that ANYONE can audition and yes, first-timers are often cast – adults and children.
Where do I audition?
South Carolina Children’s Theatre
153 Augusta Street
Greenville, SC 29604
How do I prepare for an audition?
Each audition will be different based on the type of show, the cast needed, and the director’s requirements. Therefore, you will need to check the specific Audition Call for each specific production you are interested in. Audition requirements will be posted on the audition page of our website. If you have further questions regarding auditions, please get in touch with Anna Bowman.
Do I have to take classes at SCCT to audition?
Not at all! You are not required to take SCCT classes to audition or be cast in a production. We do, however, encourage participating in theatre training. It’s like any other form of training. It takes practice to hone the craft – the more you do it, the better you get.
What do I wear to my audition?
In preparing for your audition appointment, please be sure always to dress neatly and comfortably.
What do I wear to a dance call?
Most musical auditions will include learning and performing a short dance. In this case, you would want to wear comfortable clothing and appropriate shoes that will allow you to move. Skirts/dresses and open toed shoes are not recommended.
How do I know if I am cast?
For MainStage shows, the cast list will be posted online under the production’s page on the Friday following the audition. Every one that auditioned should check the cast list – just because you did not receive a callback does not necessarily mean you did not get cast.
How does my child get involved in SCCT?
Auditioning is a great introduction to South Carolina Children’s Theatre, but the best ways to get involved at SCCT are by participating in classes or volunteering. Both ways provide the opportunity to learn the essentials of bringing a production to life.
If I can’t attend the auditions, can I still be considered?
Absolutely! If you can’t attend in person, you can submit a video audition. Here are some guidelines for creating your video.
What kind of time commitment is required if cast?
Rehearsal times vary based on type of production, directors, and individual roles. Most rehearsals are scheduled Sunday through Thursday 6:30 pm- 8:30pm the three months leading up to opening night. Rehearsal schedules are subject to change.
