The Great Gatsby Auditions

The Sioux Empire Community Theatre will hold auditions for The Great Gatsby, August 30 and September 1, at 7pm. Beautiful stagecraft, dazzling choreography, jazz music, gorgeous costumes and breathtaking language will bring this classic to life!

All roles are up for grabs, and we’re looking to cast not only the principal characters but also a dancing, partying ensemble.

Show up either night at 7pm to read either the male monologue or female monologue. Memorize it, print it out and read it, write it on your hand and try to trick us into thinking it’s memorized – we don’t care! And then stick around, because we will lead you through a fun dance call designed to see how well you move in the Jazz Age style.

We will invite those of you we need to see more from to attend the callbacks held on the weekend (you can absolutely be cast in the show without needing to attend the callbacks). At the callbacks, we will cold read scenes from the script.

The cast includes but is not limited to:

Jay Gatsby – a romatic idealist, with a disarming smile
Diasy Buchanan – Southern, with a voice that sounds like money.
Nick Carraway – Midwestern, with a kind face and a gentle manner.
Tom Buchnanan – Daisy’s Husband, with a powerful cruel body.
Jordan Baker – Daisy’s friend athletic with and athlectic , almost masculine body.
Mrtyle Wilson – Tom’s Girlfriend, New York, fleshy and sensual.
George Wilson – Mrtyle’s husband, New York, spiritless and anemic.
Meyer Wolffsheim
Mr. McKee
Mrs. McKee
Mrs. Micheals

Please join us – we’re always looking for new people to welcome into the SECT family!

Please let us know that you are coming!
