Keyano Theatre Company

Keyano Theatre Company (KTC) is a volunteer company of real people, real stories and real performances enriching the spirit of community theatre. We are committed to providing meaningful, relevant and quality entertainment. Share the experience and celebrate with us!

Auditions

This is where the Artistic Team decides who is the most appropriate for the production, based on several factors. After the auditions, the Director considers the strengths of all the candidates. With a big cast or musical production, this process takes longer as there are several discussions and consultations with other Artistic Team members.

Callbacks

Sometimes it is important for the director to see an actor again, in a different context. This is when a “callback” is requested. This means that an actor will be asked to come in and perhaps repeat their audition or perhaps work on a scene with other actors.
