Where Will You Be When Companies Are Ready to Hire?

The SETC Spring Professional Auditions will go on as scheduled, but will happen 100% virtually. SETC has had to shift gears a bit to accommodate this new format, but we are committed to providing the same service and opportunity.

The benefits for both auditionees and professional companies are the “one-stop shop” of being seen by several companies at one time and SETC’s assistance in seamlessly scheduling/executing virtual callbacks. Video auditions also have a “shelf life”. Companies will have the auditions to view and share with their counterparts for months to come.

Some of the deadlines and communication dates have changed to take advantage of the flexibility of the virtual platform and provide more accessibility for all.

* Please note that every applicant must submit a screening audition which will be adjudicated for advancement to the SETC Spring Professional Auditions.

The selected screening auditions will become the final auditions submitted to the professional companies for review prior to Convention. They will have the option to tell SETC which actors they want to callback and SETC will notify those actors. Companies will provide time blocks and actors will fill out virtual appointment sheets to schedule. Callbacks will be run through Zoom with waiting rooms and stage managers assisting in managing those rooms. Each company will also have the option to communicate directly with and arrange for its own callback with the individual actor either before, during, or after Convention.
