Auditions

Thank you for your interest in Topeka Civic Theatre and Helen Hocker Theater.
Our auditions are open to the public, and we invite and encourage anyone interested to come try us on for size.

Scripts (and scores for musicals) will be available in the Box Office two to four weeks prior to auditions. These are available for checkout with $25 deposit (check or card only) in the Box Office and must be returned by 6pm after a period of  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.

Volunteer

Have you noticed? There's always something going on at Topeka Civic Theatre. How exciting it is...classes are being held, rehearsals are taking place and productions are being mounted on three stages - all at the same time. It's no wonder it takes over 500 volunteers each year to keep TCT running smoothly. Whether your talents lie in performing, crewing, costuming, assisting with business operations or any of the numerous other volunteer positions we have to fill, we know you'll find that TCT has the perfect opportunity for you!

ENRICH YOUR EXPERIENCE.

Join us as a donor and you'll enjoy exclusive insider experiences that bring you closer to the artists.
Your support is vital to the success of Topeka Civic Theatre.
Most importantly, your donation to TCT is an important investment in our future by providing continuous, predictable revenue. This allows us to provide much-needed youth and senior programming and to increase our community enrichment. Bottom line, TCT does not receive any city or county funding and ticket sales alone only make up a percentage of our budgeted expenses. Your donation ensures that our actors, volunteers and audiences have a safe, creative place to work and be inspired.

Your Donations Build Our Future

In spite of TCT's wonderful history and successes, each year TCT struggles to make budget. Our mission is carried out through a variety of programs that simply do not pay for themselves. We receive no city or county funding. Ticket sales and other earned income provide only 60% of our budgeted expenses, and we must raise an additional 40% of funds through contributions, both corporate and individual, each year. That means we must raise $400,000 annually for the basic needs of the theatre: artistic and technical expertise and leadership, sound fiscal management and accountability, lights, water, electricity, insurance, repairs and maintenance. This ensures that our actors, volunteers and audiences have a safe, creative place to work and be inspired.

Could You Imagine

Can you imagine if we didn't receive these funds? We would have to cut 40% of our programming...we might have to cut our children's production program altogether, not to mention our Academy classes. There would be no Les Misèrables, School Edition or Stuart Little for our young people to stretch their artistic muscles, as there would be too many costumes and the royalties would be too expensive. All our Mainstage shows might have to be chosen from plays with two to four characters, eliminating a classic like Inherit the Wind, and we could never afford to costume shows like Camelot or Hello, Dolly!

Your gift means the fiscal health of TCT now and in the future. Give today and learn about Donor Benefits!

Mission Statement

Bringing our diverse community together to learn about, experience, and celebrate the joys of live theatre.

 

Co-Produce

Support TCT—Become a Co-Producer!

You can be a part of shaping the cultural offerings of Topeka and Northeast Kansas through your involvement as a Co-Producer!

Co-Producing a show at Topeka Civic Theatre & Academy is a great way to blend philanthropic dollars with an advertising investment! We invite you to join the “best of the best” Topeka and Northeast Kansas businesses, many of whom have been co-producers for TCTA shows for many years.

Co-producer support allows TCTA to keep our ticket prices at a reasonable level and to have greater “production value” (sets, lights, props, costumes, sound) than we would otherwise be able to afford. Plus, our co-producers have the satisfaction of knowing that they made a wise ‘investment’ in their community, helping to enrich the cultural offerings for their fellow citizens.
