The 2017 Spring Professional Auditions will be held March 2-4, 2017, as part of the 68th annual SETC Convention in Lexington Kentucky.
For more than 67 years, SETC has been bringing hiring theatre companies together with professional actors, singers and dancers all in one place: SETC’s Annual Convention. Last year's Spring Professional Auditions were a huge success, with more than 875 actors, singers and dancers auditioning for roles with 66 hiring companies. This year’s convention in Lexington, KY, will once again offer a one-stop shop for auditions and callbacks where actors can find quality work and companies can discover quality talent.
