Professional Auditions Available

The hiring process for Tibbits Professional Summer Theatre begins in February for the June through August summer season.


Tibbits Summer Theatre attends the United Professional Theatre Auditions in Memphis, TN and the Midwest Theatre Auditions in St Louis, MO. In 2018 Tibbits will also be represented at Straw Hats in New York. If you have not attended either of these unified calls, you may arrange an audition at the Opera House. Ideally prepare a comic monologue from the modern repertory.  Two contrasting vocal selections (in the style of what is being presented that summer) are also required. Please have accompaniment on tape or disc as no pianist is on staff until the summer.
