General Information About Auditions at Theatre South Carolina

Anyone may audition, and every interested person is encouraged to audition. Theatre South Carolina casts a number of non-students every year, if not in every show. Production is an extension of teaching, so students' needs are one factor considered in casting, but not the only factor.

TSC tries to audition all shows for a semester at one time. The directors for each show together with the Artistic Director and the acting faculty decide on casting. Occasionally some parts will be cast before auditions; this is always true in the case of guest actors.

TSC embraces non-traditional casting. The use of ethnic minority actors, female actors, and physically-challenged actors is encouraged where these elements are not essential to the story of the play.

Actors should sign up for audition times before the audition nights in the Department office, 4th floor of Longstreet Theatre. Some scripts will be available for checkout in the Department office before auditions.

Auditions are usually held in the acting studios on the first floor of Booker T. Washington Auditorium, entered from Wheat Street between Pickens and Bull Streets.

Generally, actors are expected to present a short monologue at the first auditions. For the exact nature of the monologue, see the posting for a specific show in the Department office. Sides are provided to be read at call-backs. Call-backs are posted in the Department office. Casting will also be posted in the Department office.

Good Luck!
