Auditions

Upcoming Auditions...

Our next set of auditions are Friday 7th - Sunday 9th December 2018!

Week 3 (20th-23rd February) - The Ghost Light

There is a real-life tradition in theatres that a light should be left on once everyone leaves so that the ghosts may perform plays of their own..... and 'The Ghost Light' by Megan Roberts tells this tale. Join the cast of ghosts as we see them put together their play using comedy, improvisation and some number of spoons, whilst realising that someone, somewhere is trying to get rid of these phantom thespians once and for all.

Week 5 (6th-9th March) - And Then There Were None

"Ten strangers, apparently with little in common, are lured to an island mansion off the coast of Devon by the mysterious U.N.Owen. Over dinner, a record begins to play, and the voice of an unseen host accuses each person of hiding a guilty secret. That night one of the strangers gets murdered. One down and nine to go! A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten “soldiers” met his death until there were none. The tension escalates as the survivors realise the killer is not only among them but is preparing to strike again… and again…"

Our audition process is really relaxed so there is no need to prepare anything, just come down, have a go and enjoy yourselves! You can audition for both shows, or only one if you prefer. We welcome all new faces, with no experience required, and encourage anyone interested in theatre or acting to come and get stuck in!

Audition FAQs

I don't have any acting experience, can I still audition?

Of course! SUTCo auditions are open to everyone regardless of prior experience or knowledge of theatre. We know it may seem nerve-wracking at first coming to an audition if you've never acted before, but you never know, you may be an undiscovered star! So please do come along... and bring some friends too! 

Do I have to come to every audition session?

No. Most shows will have 2 or 3 first round audition sessions, of which you only need to attend 1. Once these first round sessions have been completed, you will be contacted by email to let you know whether you have been successful or not in getting a call back. If you get a call-back, congratulations! You must then attend the call-back session.

Do I need to prepare anything?

For the vast majority of SUTCo auditions you do not need to prepare an audition piece or monologue in advance. However, if you are, on the off chance, it will be made very clear on the audition event/information.

What if I can't make auditions?

Firstly, send us an email at theatre.company@shef.ac.uk 

explaining your problem. Most issues with auditions can be sorted out, and teams can try to find a time to see you audition. If you able to come to one of the first-round auditions, but unable to stay for the whole time listed or be there at the beginning of the session, please contact us and we will pass this information on to the production team of that show. 9 times out of 10 you will be able to go along for a shorter period of time to audition. If you can't make any of the audition sessions, it may be slightly more difficult for the production team to see you, but they will make every effort to find a slot for you. If you can't make a call-back, you should respond to the call-backs email explaining your problem. However, we advise that you try and keep dates for call-backs free if possible when auditioning for a show.
