We’d like to welcome any and all actors and aspiring actors to audition for our fall production of No Exit!

This show will be rehearsed face to face on campus, starting the first day back in Fall Quarter, following the COVID guidelines which are in place in the Fall of 2021. Performances of this show will be live-streamed, and possibly have some in-person audiences if conditions allow. Circumstances in the fall of 2021 are still unpredictable, so actors should be willing to adjust to any unexpected changes, though we intend to create a successful theatrical event under any circumstances!

The Theatre & Dance Department at Western is committed to inclusive and non-traditional casting, and we encourage all performers, regardless of experience level, ethnicity, gender identity, background, as well as performers with disabilities, to submit for any and all of our productions.

Auditions for this project will be by video submission only.
