PCT is excited to announce audition information for its Summer 2020 production of Guys and Dolls!

Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desks and Olivier Awards. Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result.

Auditions will be held at Epiphany Lutheran Church (268 Hill Road North, Pickerington, OH 43147).

Please choose one of the following audition dates:
Friday, April 24, 2020 – 7:00 PM – 9:30 PM
Saturday, April 25, 2020 – 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Sunday, April 26, 2020 – 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM (as needed for call backs)

SPECIAL NOTES: We will be in need of many skilled dancers and tap dancers for this production. If you absolutely cannot make auditions the scheduled weekend, please email the director, Chris Gallaugher, at Chris.Gallaugher@PCTshows.com to schedule a separate date (or to audition by video). The show will be cast without regard to race. We need men and women ages 16 and up.

Performances will be held at the Wigwam Theater (10190 Blacklick-Eastern Rd NW, Pickerington, OH 43147). Performances are scheduled for Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, July 10 – 19, 2020. Showtimes are 8:00 PM on Fridays and Saturdays, and 2:00 PM on Sundays.

Rehearsals are tentatively scheduled for Friday evenings, Saturdays (10:00 AM – 2:00 PM), and Sundays (2:00 PM – 5:00 PM). Rehearsals are organized so that you will only be called when you are needed.

The audition process has some very simple steps:

1) You will be asked to fill out an audition form. You may attach a resume and picture if you wish (it is not required). Please bring a calendar that includes conflicts. You may click HERE to download and print an audition form to bring with you to save time. You may click HERE for a list of character descriptions.

2) You will have your picture taken and a number will be assigned to you.

3) Be prepared to sing part of a song of your choice (no more than a minute long). A piano is available for use and an accompanist will be provided. CD/MP3 accompaniment is also fine. Please choose age appropriate music. A Broadway song is preferable. DO NOT sing a song from Guys & Dolls.

4) If seeking a speaking role, please be prepared to stay for cold readings from the script. There are many videos of this show on-line for you to check various characters.

5) We will have a simple dance audition (performed in small groups). We are also looking for featured dancers. For chorus roles we only need to see basic movement.

You will receive a phone call Saturday evening if you have been called back for a lead role. If you are not called back this does not mean you will not be cast nor does it mean you will not have a speaking role (there are many named roles). The final cast list will be sent via email by Wednesday night, April 29, 2020 and posted on our website. 


This June, Pickerington Community Theatre will host Missoula Children’s Theatre for a weeklong theatre camp for children entering 1st grade through 12th grade!

Camp dates are June 15 through 20, 2020. The weeklong camp begins with an open group audition (Monday) and culminates in two public performances (Saturday at 3:00 PM and 5:30 PM) at the Wigwam Theater (10190 Blacklick-Eastern Rd NW, Pickerington, OH 43147)! Fifty to sixty students are cast and well-rehearsed throughout the week, learning lines, songs, and choreography to perform as an ensemble in producing a full-length musical. All of MCT’s shows are original adaptations of children’s stories and fairytales–a twist on the classic stories that we all know and love!

This year, PCT will present MCT’s take on King Arthur’s Quest!

Participation in the camp will cost $120.00 for the first child from a family. Each additional child within the immediate family can participate for a reduced price of $100.00. The cost includes camp registration and a camp t-shirt. Camp will run 10:00 AM through 3:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The kids will have a 30 minute lunch break each day, so make sure to pack and send lunch with your camper. On Saturday, campers will attend from 1:30 PM through the final performance.

The camp will be held at Epiphany Lutheran Church (268 Hill Road North, Pickerington, Ohio 43147). The registration deadline is set for Monday, June 1, 2020. Please note that this is one of our most popular programs and registration slots will fill up quickly! Once our registration cap is reached, we will no longer accept additional registrations.

Registration is now open for the 2020 Missoula Children’s Theatre camp! Please click HERE to register your children.
