Theater Auditions

Auditions for all Golden West College Theater Arts Department productions are open to GWC students and the general public. Unless otherwise indicated, all roles for all productions on our season are open. Audition appointments, advanced preparation and prior experience are not required for the audition unless specified in the posted audition information. However, it is suggested that actors familiarize themselves with the script prior to attending an audition. All actors and crew members cast in GWC productions will be required to enroll in a GWC Theater Production course. Each production will employ technical support crew. Individuals interested in backstage crew positions should attend the audition of the production they wish to join.

Please Note:  The Golden West College theater arts department welcomes all actors to our auditions. Golden West College follows health guidelines established by Cal OSHA and the Coast Community College District. It is recommended that all actors/students be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or demonstrate a medical or religious exemption. We anticipate that updated health and safety measures may be instituted at any time including requiring proof of vaccination or proof of an exemption. Onstage performers in GWC productions will not be wearing masks and will be working in very close proximity to one another. Unvaccinated actors and crew may be required to undergo weekly testing.  Students who wish to participate in these productions as members of the crew backstage/offstage will wear masks during all rehearsals and performances.

Thank you for your understanding of this unique situation.

Parking for auditions is in the Gothard Street student parking lot only. GWC parking regulations are not in effect on audition nights for the Gothard Street student parking lot only. There is no fee for parking for these auditions.
