Join us for 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.

ABOUT THE SHOW:
Here is an outrageous comedy for community theatres that puts the audience on the hot seat! A series of sixteen, quick-paced scenes illuminate the joys and tribulations of the modern theatre-going experience. In “An Audience of One,” a single theatre patron delivers an impassioned monologue to convince the actors to perform the show just for her. The scene, “What the Crowd Is Thinking,” allows us to hear the real thoughts of an audience sitting through an uninspired performance. In “Uber Ushers,” a band of ushers, driven to the brink of madness by the boorish behavior of an audience, stages a ferocious uprising to reclaim their theatre. The scenes are propelled by two feisty old ladies, Lottie and Bernice, who keep popping up to express their contempt for the theatre, all the while snacking from enormous purses stuffed with groceries and candy, wrapped in crinkling paper, of course!
Please arrive early to fill out the audition form (be sure to bring a list of all conflicts). Everyone auditioning will be asked to read aloud from the script.
