Acting and Auditioning





If you are interested in becoming involved, please call us at 605-996-9137 with any questions or to chat about getting started. You can also visit our Facebook page at Area Community Theatre in Mitchell.


The most obvious way to become involved is through acting.  Do you ever wonder how it feels to be on stage but are to nervous to audition with no experience?  Don't worry! We accept all levels of experience. There are plenty of plays throughout the year that offer smaller roles for new actors. 


All you need to do is show up to auditions for the particular show you would like to be in. To know what days auditions are, check below.  If you still have questions call the theatre.  We also post on Facebook frequently, so "like" our page to stay up-to-date on all ACT news!
