Spring 2019 Production Auditions

Who may audition?

Departmental productions are open to anyone who wishes to attend.

How do I audition?

The procedure for auditioning is as follows:

  • The online audition form will open November 12 at 12 PM and close Monday, November 19 at 12 PM. 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 any time between 6:30 and 10:00 on the day you select.
  • You will attach a headshot and resume to this form. Please be prepared to provide these documents while you complete this form.
  • On the night of your audition, check in with the stage manager on-site in RJ 141, 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.
  • Prepare a 90-second monologue or a 60-second monologue and 16 bars of a song (not from The Drowsy Chaperone). Your slate is not included in your time.
