Theatre Auditions FAQ
Vaccinations Required for Auditions
Auditionees will be expected to bring their vaccination card or photo of their card in order to audition. For safety, no vaccination exceptions or waivers will be allowed.
Every performer taking part in our co-curricular productions must be fully vaccinated in order to participate. Even if a student has received an approved waiver or exemption to attend WWU, waivers will not apply to be a part of our productions. Students should be prepared to provide proof of vaccination upon being cast.
Thank you for helping us keep our community protected. If you have questions or concerns in the meantime, please contact Ashley.VanCurler@wwu.edu. Stay safe and well!

Where and when are auditions held?
Depending on the show, the location will vary but will always be on campus. Current auditions will be listed at the top of this page.
Can I get credit for this?
Yes! Once you are cast in a show, you can sign up to receive credit for your performance and rehearsal.
What is the time commitment?
5 to 6 nights weekly for roughly six weeks prior to opening
Where can I find out more information?
You can sign up for the Theatre & Dance Department weekly newsletter, “Monday Matters." Sign up for the newsletter.
What should I expect to happen on the audition day?
Please arrive at least 15 minutes early for your audition in order to complete the form that will be provided. Bringing a head shot and resume is encouraged, but not required. If the audition requires you to prepare a musical excerpt, have the music neatly arranged in a 3 ring binder with your start and stop points clearly marked. Wear professional clothing which allows all movement necessary for your monologue/song. Prepare to bring a change of clothes in case there is any movement/dance portion to callbacks. Once your audition is complete, the production team will contact you. They will let you know if you're needed at callbacks, or whether you have been cast in the production. If you have questions, use the contact information on the audition posting, or contact Ashley VanCurler.
