Auditions

Each year, the Salina Community Theatre (SCT) produces multiple full-scale productions. Performers are used in all plays and musicals produced at SCT. Performers are responsible for memorizing lines, musical numbers, and dance routines. Performers are expected to provide their own stage make up and properly store costumes during performances. Performers must attend all required rehearsals and be on time for said rehearsals. Rehearsals generally run 4-6 weeks, with 5-6 rehearsals per week, each 2-3 hours long. Performers are expected to participate in every aspect of Production Week (Sunday-Thursday of the week the show opens) which includes a costume parade, technical rehearsals (microphones, set, props, etc.), and running through the show in its entirety. Performances run for 3 weeks (but may be extended) with 4 shows each week. Understudies are not used and all performers are expected to attend every performance. Clean-up duties will be assigned to performers during the run of the show. At the end of a run performers are required to help strike the set.

At SCT, part of our core mission is to provide people of ALL ages and backgrounds the opportunity to participate in play production and other theatre activities. Because of this, SCT encourages all applicants regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender identification, national origin, disability, or sexual orientation.
