Auditions for 2013 Season

SSC artistic director, Marco Barricelli, will hold an audition tour during January - February 2013.  SSC will be casting Equity and non-Equity actors for principal and supporting roles, as well as non-Equity acting interns for the ensemble.  SSC operates under an LOA referenced to LORT with Actors' Equity Association.

SSC's audition tour is limited to the West Coast. For interested actors in New York, Chicago, or elsewhere, we request that you submit a DVD audition of two monologues (one should be Shakespeare). Please include your headshot and résumé.  SSC gives equal weight to DVD and in-person auditions.

January 18, 20 & 21 - San Francisco, CA
January 30 - Ashland, OR
February 6, 7, 9, & 10- Los Angeles, CA

DVDs are a viable way of auditioning for all actors, and will be given equal weight as the in-person auditions. Please submit DVDs no later than February 8, 2013.  In lieu of a DVD, if you have an audition video posted to a website, that is also acceptable. Please include any necessary password with your submission.

Please DO NOT submit mini-DVD’s or VHS.

If you wish to verify our receipt of your submission, please include a self-addressed, stamped postcard, which we will return as soon as we get your materials.

If you have questions, please contact Maria Frangos, Company Manager, at or (831) 459-5531.
