Theatre Auditions FAQ

We have a wide variety of Theatre Arts concentrations. We have auditions for productions, but Theatre and involves many roles. Auditions or portfolio reviews are not required for consideration in a Theatre major or minor. Instead, once you've declared a Theatre major/minor, you will receive individualized advising. Our faculty and staff help you take advantage of every opportunity we offer.

Can anyone audition?

Yes, all are welcome! Auditions are not limited to anyone within the major!

Where and when are auditions held?

Depending on the show, the location will vary but will always be on campus. Please check the Theatre event feed for the audition location and time.

What is the time commitment?

5 to 6 nights weekly for roughly six weeks prior to opening

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.

Can I get credit for this?

Yes! Once you are casted in a show, you can sign up to receive credit for your performance and rehearsal.
