Audition Opportunities

Auditions for our seven Mainstage productions and two cabarets will be planned six to ten weeks before a production. Audition times, sign-up links, and casting information will be posted roughly four weeks before each audition. COVID-19 policies continue to be in place, but change based on CDC recommendations.

COVID-19 Policy Update

COVID19- Audition/Rehearsal/Performance Protocols at Waukesha Civic Theatre

All children 12+ and adults who are auditioning for a WCT production or members of a shows’ production team will be asked to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination. If you are not vaccinated or did not bring proof of vaccination, you will need to wear a mask while auditioning. 

At the first rehearsal, if you did not provide proof of your COVID-19 vaccination at auditions, please show it to your production Stage Manager prior to entering the rehearsal hall. If you are not vaccinated, you will need to wear a mask at all rehearsals. 

If you are not vaccinated you will need to provide the production Stage Manager a weekly negative COVID19 test result taken 72 hours before the first dress rehearsal and again prior to the first performance of each week in a show’s run.  Assuming a negative test result, a mask will not be required on stage during performances, but will be required before/after all performances.  

These protocols apply to both children and adults and are subject to change based on CDC recommendations.

When Henrietta Leavitt began work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she wasn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories.

Auditions will consist of cold reading from the script.

Commitment to Diversity and Equity

WCT is committed to increasing representation of our whole community on our WCT stage, artistic teams, staff, and volunteer groups, and are dedicated to creating a safe, respectful, and equitable workplace for all. 

We acknowledge that while we have come a long way to become equitable and accessible to our community with disabilities, and have proudly provided opportunities of leadership for all gender identities, we have not yet had a proportionate cultural representation and equity in our theatre and we are working intentionally to improve.
