AUDITION

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can audition? 2018-01-03T23:00:47+00:00

Anyone can audition for a show at Spokane Civic Theatre! We try to provide adequate character information for each production so everyone can decide which role is best for them to audition for.

What should I wear to auditions? 2017-12-20T00:22:27+00:00

We recommend that your outfit be more business casual, but something that you are comfortable in and can move in. If a director requires dance clothes or specific shoes, that information will be listed with the other details about that specific audition.

Can I read the script before my audition? 2017-12-20T00:14:04+00:00

Yes, Spokane Civic Theatre keeps copies of all scripts for the season in the Box Office that are available to be read either during Box Office hours or can be checked out for a $20 deposit (your deposit is returned if you bring the script back before the auditions).

If you are looking to check out a script, please call the Box Office at 509-325-2507 at least one hour before you would like to pick it up.

For musical auditions, can I bring my own track music? 2017-12-20T00:10:41+00:00

For all of our musical auditions Spokane Civic Theatre will provide an accompanist for your audition. Please bring piano sheet music for them to play while you perform.

Can I perform a monologue or a song from the show I am auditioning for? 2017-12-20T00:07:55+00:00

In order for our production teams to get an impression of you as a performer, we like to see you audition with content not from the show you are auditioning for.

Are there auditions for the Academy? 2017-12-20T00:26:20+00:00

The academy classes that are offered each quarter are not audition based and anyone in the age range of the class may sign up to participate.

The intensives and other special performance camps may require an audition, so please check our audition page for any Academy shows that are coming up for auditions.

Artie Shaugnessy is a songwriter with visions of glory and the lead character of this delicious black comedy. Toiling by day as a zookeeper, he suffers in seedy lounges by night, plying his wares at piano bars in Queens, where he lives with his wife, Bananas, much to the chagrin of Artie’s downstairs mistress, Bunny Flingus, who refuses to cook until they are married. On the day the Pope is making his first visit to the city, Artie’s son Ronny goes AWOL from Fort Dix. Also arriving are Artie’s old school chum, now a successful Hollywood producer, Billy Einhorn, and his starlet girlfriend who holds the key to Artie’s dreams of getting out and away from the life he so despises. But like many dreams, this promise of glory evaporates amid the chaos of ordinary lives.

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor, and a leggy lab assistant, Inga, Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s.
