Current Season Auditions

Auditions are your gateway to the performance experience. The experienced director knows that appropriate casting is essential to a successful production. You, the actor, know that being cast in a production will enable you to practice and advance in your art. Thus, you must approach the audition seriously and make your best effort. In any audition, as in any job interview, professional demeanor and trust are essential.

Auditions for Theatre Department productions are open-call auditions, which means that audition appointments are available to students regardless of major, as well as to faculty and staff, alumni, and friends of the university.

All auditions seek to discover combinations of performers capable of creating ensemble and convincingly capturing the characters of the play. Other qualities the director looks for include stage presence, self deportment and confidence, applied imagination, vocal control and flexibility, movement capabilities, the ability to focus on task, sensitivity to rhythms, and physical characteristics. Casting is made, first of all, with the best interests of the show in mind.
