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.
Unless otherwise indicated below, auditions are held in the McKinley Studio Theatre.
