Thank you for your interest in auditioning for a show at the Greenwood Community Theatre! GCT holds open auditions for anyone in the community who is interested. Auditions are typically held 6-8 weeks before the show opens. No experience is necessary to audition.  Auditioning is probably one of the most frightening things about becoming a part of the theatre.  People can be filled with pure, unadulterated terror!  The following is some basic information that will help you to succeed and feel like a pro at GCT!!

When auditioning, you should:

  • Come in relaxed and prepared to have fun!
  • Get to GCT early and plan to stay the entire evening
  • Wear comfy clothing
  • There will be an audition agreement for you to sign.  If you are age 13 or under, you MUST have a parent or responsible  adult there with you to sign the agreement.
  • If auditioning for a musical, you will be warmed up and taught a selection from the show.  You are welcome to prepare a song 16-32 bars; however, it is not required.
  • You will read a little something from the script and play theatre games
  • If you get a callback that means the director wants to see more, but the one audition may be enough.
  • ALWAYS CHECK THE CAST LIST which is posted on the front door of the theatre and emailed out to all auditionees.
  • If you are cast, you will sign a contract agreeing to all the requirements of the show.
