Summer & Outdoor Theatre Auditions
New Audition Dates: March 26 & 27, 2021
Location: Greensboro, NC
SETC Summer & Outdoor Theatre Auditions Moved to March 2021
Due to COVID-19, the Summer & Outdoor Theatre Auditions, originally scheduled for January 15-16, 2021, will be moved to March 26-27, 2021. A survey informed SETC that the professional companies prefer the possibility of an in-person audition in March versus a virtual one in January.
SETC Outdoor Theatre hosts auditions for summer and outdoor theatres looking to cast acting, singing, dancing and stage combat positions. Interviews are also available for technical positions and internship opportunities. Both outdoor and indoor theatres are invited to participate.
