We will announce auditions for the rest of the 2014-2015 season soon.

Plymouth Community Theatre holds auditions for each production. The requirements for each audition will vary by director and will be posted when the auditions are announced.

Actors interested in attending our open auditions may request further information via the "Get Involved" link on the right. Attending an open audition does not excuse an actor from auditioning for each show individually. However, actors may be invited to audition for specific roles based on their open audition, or they may be invited to callbacks despite being unable to attend a show audition.

For open auditions, we request two prepared monologues (comic and dramatic), each under 2 minutes in length. If you do not have prepared monologues, we will have stock monologues for you to read from. Please feel free to email us ahead of time and we will forward you the appropriate readings for you to review prior to the auditions.

Singers may also prepare 32 bars of a musical theater song of their choice.

Resumes and headshots are welcome, but not required
(we will take your photo when you check in for the audition).
