Spring Professional Auditions
Real Work. Real Theatres. Real Opportunity.
March 5-7, 2015 | Chattanooga, TN
For more than 65 years, SETC has been bringing hiring theatre companies together with professional actors, singers and dancers all in one place: SETC’s Annual Convention. This year’s convention in Chattanooga, TN, will once again offer a one-stop shop for auditions and callbacks where actors find quality work and companies discover quality talent.
Companies can count on excellence. SETC hosts the nation's most reliable, longest running combined auditions — where quality has counted for over 65 years. Theatre companies come to these auditions knowing they’ll discover carefully screened, professional-level talent (from over 800 actors, dancers and singers) who they’ll be eager to hire.
How to Register/Apply:
To participate, theatres and actors must register for Convention, and actors must apply/be approved for an audition slot.
