Specifics vary from production to production but are included in each audition announcement. The Theatre/Dance Department produces six mainstage productions, two Summeround productions annually. There are also opportunities to audition for the directing class scenes, one-act plays and the Emerging Choreographers Concert. You can find the details about upcoming auditions below.
