Audition Changes for 2022

The Fall Professional Auditions are traditionally held as live auditions, however we recently surveyed our professional companies that attend in the Fall and while all would like to be in-person, they have expressed that a virtual format would be better for them at this time. We have decided to once again host the auditions virtually to increase opportunities for those who are not able or willing to travel or attend in-person. 

  • All applicants are required to provide an audition video. This will serve as your audition.
  • Time limits have changed. All auditionees will have a time limit of sixty (60) seconds regardless of the type of audition you perform.
  • We have added an additional audition video upload. This is so you can show more of your talent. Please be aware that this is an additional video, your main video will serve as your official audition to be screened. If you are doing both acting and singing, your main audition video will need to have both.
  • There will be no Dance Call or Dancer-Only Auditions this year. Those who wish to be viewed as dancers in addition to acting and singing may also upload a dance reel to be viewed by the hiring companies.
  • There will be no Fall Qualifiers. Since we are now screening every audition/application, qualifiers have been removed.

If you have any questions or encounter any technical issues, please email Elizabeth Theodora, Professional Services Manager, at elizabeth@setc.org.
