Important Details for Auditions
  • Follow these three steps when you arrive at SRJC:

    1. Parking is available in the Mendocino Ave ("Zumwalt") parking garage. You will be required to purchase a parking permit to park on campus. (More parking info here.)

    2. Go to Audition Registration in the Burbank Greenroom.  The entrance is located on the back side of the Studio Theatre (that’s the square concrete building to the left of the main Burbank Auditorium entrance).

  • Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your assigned audition time in order to register, attend a brief orientation, and travel to the audition space.  Allow an additional 15 minutes if you did not email your completed Registration Form(s) in advance; we will have extra copies to fill out should you need to do so.

Restrooms will be available, as well as both inside and outside waiting areas.  Other than water bottles, we ask that there is no eating or drinking inside.

* Drop-Ins: Just follow the details above and come to Registration as early in the audition schedule as possible. We’ll confirm you for a time slot as soon as one is available; you might have to wait, but we’ll get you in.  If you do not have a completed registration form, we will have extra copies you can fill out at Registration.


On the "Audition Criteria..." pages for each show, in addition to information about the production and rehearsals, you’ll find a section labeled “What to Prepare.”  Carefully read those instructions, as each show may have different requirements.

What's a monologue?

A monologue is a speech from a play where one character speaks for an extended period of time to another character, themselves, or the audience. Actors are usually asked not to select a monologue from the play for which they are auditioning.

What if I don't have a prepared monologue?

No worries. If you don’t have a prepared monologue already, you may use one of the 'optional' monologues linked at the bottom of this page under "GENERAL AUDITION RESOURCES." , If you've never done this before OR found out about auditions at the last minute, do not worry about memorizing the monologue or reading the play the monologue is from (unless you want to). However, reading a bit about the play’s plot and characters online can help you prepare.
