Ridgewood Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company holds auditions at least twice each year for participation in our mainstage productions and additional concerts and special events. At our auditions, all principal roles in a production are available, and many of our productions are double cast in order to provide as many performance opportunities as possible. Our audition process includes a singing portion – where a Gilbert & Sullivan selection is highly suggested – alongside reading sides from the show we are casting.

Although our rehearsal schedule and time commitment varies depending on production and role, RGSOC rehearsals typically take place on Monday and Thursday evenings in Northern New Jersey. All of our rehearsal and performance locations are easily accessible by train and/or bus from New York City, and ride shares are often coordinated for individuals living near one another. If you have any questions about our auditions or rehearsal process, please feel free to contact us or email us at


We have completed auditions for our Summer 2020 production of The Yeomen of the Guard, but we are accepting video auditions for chorus participation and a limited number of male principal roles. If you are interested in submitting, please contact us or email us at for more information.

Auditions for our Fall 2020 production of The Pirates of Penzance will occur in late summer. Please check back later for our audition announcement and production-specific information.
