If acting is your thing, we have many opportunities year-round for you to try and make it to the stage!

For our major productions (spring musical, winter and fall plays), auditions are typically held 12-16 weeks before opening night. We also hold auditions for our Family Theatre, summer musical camp and, periodically, for our On Book! Readers Theatre productions.


UPCOMING AUDITIONS


2020 Playwrights Festival Audition Information

 
About the Festival

2020 has brought a lot of changes and the SJCT Playwrights Festival is changing with it! The challenges of quarantine, social distancing, and maintaining a safe and healthy community have inspired us to re-think our format.

  • Plays will be produced as readings, September 3-6, 2020.
  • Audiences of up to 50 may be permitted to attend if San Juan County has moved to Phase 3 of re-opening, depending on guidelines from Public Health Officials.
  • All readings will be recorded and posted online for public viewing.
