Frequently Asked Questions

Who may audition?

Departmental productions are open to anyone who wishes to attend.

How do I audition?

Specific information about each season’s auditions will be posted to the semester production audition page. Please follow all instructions regarding acceptance of roles, physical/cosmetic changes, costume fittings, etc.

The procedure for auditioning is as follows:

  • Complete the online audition form. This form typically opens about a week before auditions start. You may only submit one form — all subsequent submissions will be discarded. You will be assigned an audition number based on when you complete the form. All auditions will take place on August 18th beginning at 6:00 p.m. Callbacks will be held on August 19th and 20th. Please see the semester production audition page for more details.
  • Audition material should be no longer than 60 seconds (90 seconds including a slate). This can include 16 bars of a song and a monologue, two contrasting monologues, or a single monologue. Auditions that exceed the 60 second time limit will be stopped at time. Directors have requested:
    • Pippin: A contemporary monologue and song in the style of the show
    • Pipeline: A contemporary monologue
    • The Colored Museum: A monologue in the style of the show
