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. Pre-COVID: 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. At this time, all general auditions are video submissions. Callbacks may be in person or via zoom. Please see the semester production audition page for more details.
  • For Antigone, submissions should be a 45 to 60 second monologue from the Fitts and Fitzgerald translation of Antigone – the character of your choosing.
  • For Spring Awakening, submissions should be a 16 bars of a pop/rock song (not from a musical) and a 45 to 60 second contemporary monologue that you feel are appropriate to the style of the show. Songs should be recorded with piano accompaniment.
