Audition Information

Auditions are open to everyone, from beginning actor to veteran performer, and are held about two months prior to each show’s opening.

SBCT auditions are in multiple locations, so check the notice carefully. They are either in the South Bend Civic Theatre building at 403 N. Main (Mainstage, Studio Theatre or Lobby); or in The Firehouse, 701 Portage Ave.; or occasionally in the church next door.

Rehearsals are generally held four or five nights a week for six to eight weeks, heavier closer to opening.

Productions are usually in either the 209 seat Wilson Mainstage Auditorium, or in our 80 seat Barbara K. Warner Studio Theatre, and run 2 to 3 weeks.

Unless the script specifies otherwise, all roles are cast without regard to race and/or ethnic origin.


There are no auditions items at this time. Please check back soon.
