Auditions and Upcoming Events

There’s always something going on at Schenectady Civic Players. From auditions to free staged readings, social and work events, find out more about being involved.

Our Audition Process:

The Schenectady Civic Players’ season runs October through May with five shows in a season. Each production consists of a 6-10 week rehearsal cycle with rehearsals 3-4 nights per week on varying nights. Each play runs for eight performances. All casts are chosen at public auditions.

Schenectady Civic Players’ auditions are held on 2 separate nights. Registration begins at 7:00 with auditions starting at 7:30. Audition forms are provided so resumes and head shots are not required, but can be helpful.
Audition readings are typically done from “sides” or excerpts from the script. Monologues are generally not required unless expressly specified by the director. During auditions, readings are conducted in small groups assembled by the audition committee.

If you are not cast, please feel free to find out more about the many other ways you can still be involved in the production.
