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.

1020 North Howard Street

Spokane, WA 99201


  • Directed by William Marlowe
  • We are looking for a wide variety of accomplished actors who can bring interesting quirky characters to the stage. A facility with an English accent is a must as is the ability to learn extensive lines quickly

  • Questions:

    Please email Creative Consultant, Jake Schaefer at

    Production Details:


  • Lord Summerhays: a former colonial governor, father to Bentley. He is an older striking man with an air of a proper English gentleman.
  • Bentley (Bunny) Summerhays: son of Lord Summerhays, fiancé to Hypatia; one of those smallish, thin-skinned men, late 20’s. He is slender, has a rather high immature voice and is rather frustrating.
  • Joey Percival: friend to Bentley and a part-time aviator. He is a splendid specimen of the English male, who later courts Hypatia.
  • Lina Szczepanowska: a beautiful but aggressive, proud and celebrated Polish acrobat; the members of her famous family make it a point of honor to risk their lives at least once a day; she receives advances from Mr. Tarleton, Lord Summerhays, Bentley and Johnny in the short time she is at the house. (flavor of a Polish accent will apply)
  • Julius Baker (Gunner): a peculiar and unhappy young clerk who sets out to right the wrongs he feels Mr. Tarleton has perpetrated against his mother.

Roles (cont.):

  • John Tarleton: the vivacious patriarch of the Tarleton family, who made his fortune in underwear. He is a great supporter of free libraries and is a man of many ideas.
  • Mrs. Tarleton: wife to John Tarleton and mother to Jonny and Hypatia. She is a shrewd and motherly old lady who has been pretty in her time and is still very pleasant and likeable.
  • Johnny Tarleton: an ordinary, young, handsome and muscular business man of around thirty. He has spent much time with his father’s business but is a bit of a brute in a very English sense.
  • Hypatia Tarleton: daughter of John Tarleton, fiancée to Bentley. She is a typical English girl of about 18 who is anything but typical. She is flirty, and seeks an exciting escape from her leashed boring lady-like existence.
