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.

Margot and Robert Odgen Main Stage

A Place To Call Home is a story of benevolence – the fruition of a dream conceived in the mind of a 14 year old orphan, Levi Hutton. When Levi and his wife, May Arkwright Hutton, struck it rich in 1901, they were left with the financial means to do just about whatever they chose. After May’s early death, Levi eventually chose to gift all of his assets to the construction of a home for unfortunate children. To be sure that it could last for at least 250 years, he endowed it with the income from all of his businesses already in place in the Spokane area. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Hutton Settlement, “A Place To Call Home” is the story of how that dream came to life.

Firth J Chew Studio Theatre

In 1982, on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the wealthy, articulate, pot-smoking teenagers who were small children in the ’60s have emerged as young adults in a country that has just resoundingly rejected everything they were brought up to believe in. The very last wave of New York City’s ’60s-style Liberalism has come of age—and there’s nowhere left to go. In meticulous, hilarious, and agonizing detail, This is Our Youth follows forty-eight hours of three very lost young souls in the big city.

By KENNETH LONERGAN

Directed by ANDREW START

Preparation:

Actors are strongly encouraged to read the script. Sides will be provided at auditions for cold readings. No monologues required.

Available Roles:

Seeking three magnetic, spontaneous and emotionally versatile actors of any race or gender to play characters ages 19-21 in the prime of their ‘youth.’ Actors should be comfortable presenting as the age and gender of the character they are auditioning for.

Dennis Ziegler – Male – 21: grungy, former athlete, a very quick, dynamic, fanatical and bullying kind of person; amazingly goodnatured and magnetic, but insanely competitive and almost always successfully so.

Warren Straub – Male – 19:  thoughtful, vulnerable, has spent most of his adolescence in hot water, and is just beginning to find beneath his natural eccentricity a dogged self possession, despite being enormously self-destructive, he is, above all things, a trier.

Jessica Goldman – Female – 19: a fairly cheerful but nervous young woman, prone to a watchful defensiveness as a method of coping with her nervousness, despite her prickliness, she is basically friendly.
