SJCT: Holding Zoom Auditions For New Digital Work

From San Juan Community Theatre…
Join us for auditions for SJCT’s new webseries, “Friday Harbor Happenings!
This new, digital work is a satirical sketch comedy show with an ensemble cast, created by San Juan Community Theatre for our beloved local community. The writers hope the episodes will bring a smile and some laughter to everyone in these uncertain times.
Friday Harbor Happenings” centers on a new (but fictional) social media page and the (also fictional) island inhabitants that join the page. All actors will be filmed via Zoom on their home computers.
There are two dates scheduled for auditions – Thursday, September 10, 6:30-9:00pm and Sunday, September 13, 2:00-4:00pm.
All auditions will be held via Zoom. Actors will read from script pages provided by SJCT.
To schedule your audition, please read the character breakdown below and then fill out this form. You will receive an email from Courtney Kessler-Jeffrey, production manager, confirming your time slot, providing the audition pages, and sending a Zoom link. If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, please familiarize yourself with its use before your audition to prevent any technical issues on the day-of.
Any questions can be sent to Courtney Kessler-Jeffrey at
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you!
