Auditioning for Key City Public Theatre

General Auditions are held each year in the fall for the upcoming season.

In addition, KCPT Artistic Staff attend the annual Theatre Puget Sound (TPS) General Auditions held in Seattle. For further information about TPS Auditions, please visit their website.

General auditions dates for the 2016 season are to be announced.

General Auditions are open to actors of all ages and experience levels.  Each season, a few roles are available to members of Actors’ Equity Association (AEA Special Appearance Agreement).

General Auditions are audited by the season’s directors and KCPT artistic staff.  By attending, you are eligible for roles in any production including our mainstage shows, PT Shorts, or other special readings and events.

NOTE:  Auditions are scheduled by appointment with a five-minute time limit.  Schedule your appointment by emailing christa.cesmat@keycitypublictheatre.org

A free audition preparation workshop will be held in advance of General Auditions.  More information on that workshop is below.


Audition Preparation

Please prepare two contrasting monologues or one monologue and a song.  No accompaniment is available.  If you do not have prepared material, a monologue will be provided at the audition.

Bring a headshot and resume (one copy) OR your photograph will be taken and an audition application will be provided.

Perusal scripts of 2015 season plays are available — at the KCPT uptown offices at 1128 Lawrence Street and at the Key City Playhouse Box Office.
