Auditions for Theatre/Dance Department productions are open to everyone - majors, minors, non-majors/minors, community members etc. Typically auditions require a resume, headshot and one or two monologues plus a song for the musicals. Specifics vary from production to production but are included in each audition announcement. The Theatre/Dance Department produces five mainstage productions and 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.

Tips on recording videos from director
Please make sure I can see your face, but also most of your body in the video. I suggest mid-thigh up to the top of your head for a frame. Deliver your text straight down the barrel of the camera. Try to keep ambient and external noise to a minimum, and find a plain background. A bare, or nearly bare wall works well.
Fill out the Information Sheet and Questionnaire, and submit with your video. Please provide a theatrical resume in a PDF.
