This is strictly to track stage auditions, not film/TV. If there is a company in O.C. (or reasonable driving distance) I have left out, or an audition you know of outside the normal published schedules – for a showcase, a reading, a dinner theater opening, etc. – and you’d like to share it, please e-mail me (nt(at)nicholasthurkettle.com) and I’ll try to get it in.

If a date is not yet listed, I order by the show’s opening date, and you can generally assume auditions will be held 6-10 weeks before that. Click on the company’s name to go to their website for their location and additional audition info. If you want to see when I’ve updated, just Follow me on Twitter.

A lot of actors have contacted me to tell me that they prefer this bulletin board to some of the paid subscription services they have used in the past; and I’m always glad to hear that. I want to keep this bulletin board free for all but it does take time to maintain, so if you have ever used it to land a part, it would be great if you would consider the proverbial price of a cup of coffee. I like coffee. You can send a PayPal payment to me using the same e-mail address in the previous paragraph; your generosity is appreciated.

We’ve got talented actors in Orange County, and the more good people we can match up with auditions, the better the theater gets for everybody. Hope this helps – break a leg!
