SRJC Theatre Arts Casting Policy
Actors of all races, ethnicities, gender identities, ages, shapes and sizes and all abilities/disabilities will be considered for all roles.
SRJC Auditions are open to the entire community, including high school students.
(Middle school students and children are also welcome to audition when a production includes younger roles.)
Once cast, everyone enrolls in at least one class so then everyone becomes an SRJC student.

WHAT TO PREPARE
Carefully read the detailed instructions for each show below for what to prepare for each show's specific auditions.
REALLY HELPFUL AUDITION RESOURCES
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, him/herself, or the audience. Actors are asked not to select a monologue from the play for which they are auditioning.
What if I don't have a prepared monologue?
Not to worry. If you've never done this before OR found out about auditions at the last minute, you may use one of the 'generic' monologues linked at the bottom of this page under "GENERAL AUDITION RESOURCES." Since you have limited time, do not worry about reading the play the monologue is, although that does help you prepare. Reading about the play’s plot and characters online can help too.
Note: Some of these resources are prepared specifically for live, in-person auditions. However, they still contain lots of good information that can be helpful to consider when preparing your pre-recorded or Zoom auditions.
