Rocky Horror Show Auditions

February 6 - 7, 2024 | 6pm

Stan State's production of Richard O'Brien's Rocky Horror Show.

For the auditions, please prepare a sassy monologue from any era, and any length 60s/70s rock 'n' roll style song. A song from The Rocky Horror Show is an excellent choice, especially if you have a role in mind. All roles are open to all genders.

Check out the production, Live from London's West End Rocky Horror Show.

The overall style of this production is high satire ‘camp’. The characters are extremely broad and stylized. Most of the characters will be in some scant, suggestive costuming.

***Mature Content***
Caution! Please familiarize yourself with the show before auditioning! Read the script (available in the Theatre Department office for review) AND watch a staged production (NOT the movie) on the internet. Please refer to the Department’s Intimacy and Casting Policies, also available in the office. If there are actions the character takes or words the character says that you feel you would not be able to perform, please let us know at the audition. Perhaps a different role might be more suitable for you, i.e., the Offstage
Audience Participation Ensemble will not be costumed suggestively.

For the auditions, please prepare:

  • A one-minute contemporary, comedic monologue from a play in the same style: satire, "camp", theatre of the absurd, or something similar
  • One 60s/70s rock’n’roll style song. A song from The Rocky Horror Show is an excellent choice, especially if you have a role in mind. Roles are open to any gender, except Brad and Janet.
