Ocala Civic Theatre holds open auditions for all shows.

No experience is necessary. Newcomers and theatre veterans alike are welcome and encouraged to audition. Ocala Civic Theatre does not use understudies. Actors must be available for all rehearsals and performances.

Copies of this season’s scripts are available at the Theatre and may be checked out from the box office for one week with a $10 refundable deposit. Box office hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Please call (352) 236-2274 before coming to make sure a script is in stock. If you check out a script the week before auditions, you must return it by 5 p.m. on the Friday before auditions.

Specific audition information for each show is provided in the Cue Sheet (our e-mail audition notice) and on our Facebook page as details become available. 



Diversity in Casting

Ocala Civic Theatre is committed to casting diverse artists who reflect the demographics of our community and our society.

As a community theatre with an open casting policy, we promote equal opportunity and inclusion. We actively invite those performing artists who may have been historically underrepresented.

Ocala Civic Theatre is an inclusive community where artists of all backgrounds can find a safe place to tell stories that encourage our wonderful audiences, volunteers, and actors to walk in each other’s shoes.

Golden Troupers

The Golden Troupers is a dynamic group of performers ages 55+ who bring live theatre into the community through a 45-minute readers-theatre program of songs, comedy skits, and magic. The Troupers provide their own sound system, music, props and materials. There is no charge for the performances, although donations to Ocala Civic Theatre and its youth programs are gratefully accepted. To schedule a performance for your club or organization, call Ocala Civic Theatre at (352) 236-2274.
