TCT Open Casting Call Notice

The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati (TCT) is holding auditions ONLINE for the first MainStage production in their 102nd Season: Disney’s Decendants.

TCT is the nation’s oldest children’s theatre. All roles are paid positions.

The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati believes the stories on our stages and the work we do behind the scenes must reflect the diverse communities we serve. We believe inclusive work cultures spark wide-ranging, exploratory conversations and learning. Therefore, we strongly welcome and encourage people from all backgrounds, races, ethnicities, gender, gender identities, religions, abilities, and ages to apply as we continue our commitment to diversity and build an inclusive environment at TCT.

Auditions are by online submission only.

Young Artists currently in High School and Adults 18+ may submit an audition video. 

All actors in Disney’s Descendants must authentically portray characters ages 16+.

You MUST register online and include a youtube link (marked as unlisted) in the registration. PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER UNTIL YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR VIDEO AUDITION.  If you need to cancel or make changes, please follow the link in your registration email.  Multiple slots for a single actor will be cancelled.  You will need to register for a specific time which will be used for internal purposes only, DO NOT REPORT TO TCT IN PERSON.

Visit to sign-up and submit your video audition.

Submissions will be accepted April 26 to May 10, 2021

You may be asked to return and attend a “socially distanced” in-person callback if you are being considered for a certain role.  We will reach out directly to all auditionees we’d like to callback.  Callbacks will be held Mid June 2021.


Please prepare one memorized song that best shows your vocal range. (1-minute max). The song must be age appropriate and should reflect the style of the character(s) you are interested in being considered for.

You only need a song. You do NOT need to prepare a monologue.

You must submit a RECENT 8×10 headshot or photo and an UPDATED performance resume.

Due to concentrated rehearsal periods, we ask that you do not have conflicts during rehearsals. In an effort to best facilitate all rehearsal times, all those auditioning will be asked to list all conflicts at the time of the audition. Additional conflicts could result in a stipend adjustment. Please take note of when rehearsals begin, the day and evening tech and performance schedule, before submitting.
