Join us for these upcoming auditions at the Sioux City Community Theatre. Auditions are open to the public, and anyone can try out. Auditions usually run two nights and require participants to read a passage from a script by themselves or with another actor, and sing if they are trying out for a musical.
Before you come to the audition, please fill out an Audition Form.
Auditions: Monday, July 30 at 6:30 PM and Tuesday, July 30 at 6:30 PM
Location: Sioux City Community Theatre, 1401 Riverside Boulevard in Sioux City
Performance Dates: 10 performances; Sept. 14 – 30, 2018.

Director Eric Sorensen will be holding auditions for SCCT’s production of HONK! on Monday, July 30 at 6:30 PM and Tuesday, July 31 at 6:30 PM.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother’s protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out that being different is not a bad thing to be.
Please arrive early to fill out the audition form (be sure to bring a list of all conflicts). Everyone auditioning will be asked to sing 16-32 bars of a prepared song and read aloud from the script. Please bring your own accompaniment – a CD/MP3 player will be provided.
