The Screening Process

Actors and singers who don’t yet qualify as career professionals have the opportunity to secure an audition slot at the SETC Spring Professional Auditions in March by attending and advancing from an SETC Professional Screening Audition in one of the 10 states within the SETC region. Please Note: Only a percentage of those participating in the Screening Auditions will be invited to advance to the auditions in March.

1.   Find Your Assigned State

Each of the 10 states in the SETC region hosts Screening Auditions.

You must register for Screening Auditions in either:

  • the state where you hold permanent residence
  • the state where you are currently enrolled in post-secondary school

Don’t live in or attend school in the SETC region? Don’t worry, just hover over your state on the map below to see your assigned audition state. Click the star on your host state for full details.

2.   Apply by Your State’s Deadline

Audition dates, registration deadlines and application fees vary by state. Click on your state above (or on the links to the right) for specific details and instructions regarding your assigned audition state. All applications open at Noon ET on Sept. 14, 2018. 

2018 SETC Screening Application Deadlines are at Noon (ET)

3.   Prepare & Audition

You will receive your audition number and other information shortly after your state’s application deadline. Prepare as per the Official Guidelines (2018-2019 Guidelines Coming Soon). At the event, you will audition for a panel of adjudicators who will score your audition. Break a leg!

4.  Wait for Your Results

Wait to hear back from SETC regarding your Screening results. We’ll let you know whether or not you have been passed on to audition at our Spring Professional Auditions as soon as possible.

5. Register for SETC

If you are passed on to audition at the SETC Spring Professional Auditions, you must register for the SETC Convention and pay the spring audition fee by your assigned deadline.

The total cost of convention registration, SETC membership, and the spring audition fee will be: $170 for students and $270 for adults.*

*If you plan to register for other events such as the Theatre Job Fair, Graduate School Auditions, etc., you should also register for these at this time. Some activities may incur additional fees.

6.  Break a Leg at the SETC Spring Professional Auditions

Join us at the Spring Professional Auditions where you will audition for thousands of roles with 60-80 companies from across the nation. You will also have the chance to take in workshops, shows, networking events and more as part of the annual convention.

The 70th Annual SETC Convention will be held Feb. 27 – March 3, 2019, in Knoxville, TN. Audition dates are Feb. 28 – March 2, 2019 (Thursday, Friday, Saturday). You will be assigned to one of those dates based on the block of availability for which you are eligible.
