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 this website. 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 will open 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. Please be certain you are available on the day you select.
  • On the night of your audition, check in with the stage manager on-site between 15 and 30 minutes prior to your audition time. Those arriving earlier will be asked to come back.
  • Come dressed appropriately for an audition — whatever that means to you.
  • Please bring 6 copies of your head shot and resume.

How do I know if I’ve been cast?

Cast lists will be posted on the callboards outside of 105 Rowand-Johnson Hall, as well as emailed to those cast on callback day. Casting information is not provided online.

What if I am studying abroad during general auditions?

In the event that a person wanting to audition is studying abroad during general auditions, they will be allowed to submit a link to their audition video (YouTube or Vimeo only) to Shaina Pierce at
