Auditions are open to the public, and we invite and encourage anyone interested to come try us on for size.

STEP ONE: CHECKOUT A SCRIPT / SCORE

Scripts (and scores for musicals) will be available in the Box Office two to four weeks prior to auditions. There is a $25 deposit fee (check or card only). Scripts maybe checked out for three business days. (Scripts can no longer be returned at auditions.) If the script is returned after 6pm on the third business day, the deposit will be considered payment and is nonrefundable. Scripts returned on schedule will have their deposit refunded.  Topeka Civic Theatre Box Office Hours: 10am – 6pm, Monday – Friday

STEP TWO: MAKE AN AUDITION APPOINTMENT

Contact Chelle Decker at Chelle@TopekaCivicTheatre.com or by phone at 785.357.5213 to make an audition appointment at Topeka Civic Theatre. Contact Lynda Denton at Lynda@TopekaCivicTheatre.com or by phone at 785.251.5990.

Audition times are Saturday from 1-4pm and Sunday from 1-2:30pm unless otherwise posted. Auditioners should be available for callbacks on Sunday from 2:30-5:30pm if requested by the director.

STEP THREE: PREPARE
  • You will be asked to read scenes in small groups. You do not need to have anything memorized and you will be allotted time to read through the lines with your small group/partner prior.
  • For musical auditions you should come prepared with a song (about 16 measures). It is preferred that you sing a song from the show, but not required. An accompanist will be provided for auditions.
  • For musical auditions, more than likely the audition will also contain choreography, which will consist of learning and then performing a few dance steps in a small group.
STEP FIVE: STAY INFORMED
