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.
The Bridges of Madison County (Mar. 1 – 17, 2019)
Location: Sioux City Community Theatre, 1401 Riverside Boulevard in Sioux City
Performance Dates: 9 performances; Mar. 1 – 17, 2019.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-ravaged Italy, looks forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm when her family heads to the 1965 State Fair. When ruggedly handsome, National Geographic photographer, Robert Kincaid, pulls into her driveway seeking directions, though, what happens in those four days may very well alter the course of Francesca’s life.
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.
