Auditions for the Productions of the Season

Auditions are held for each production during the performance season.  Auditions schedules are posted in the Program office and announced in classes. Traditionally these auditions begin the night of the first day of class of the semester with a general call and last for 2 to 4 nights for call-backs for specific productions.

For a musical theatre production, students should prepare one monologue and a thirty-two bar cut from musical theatre repertoire.  The presentation of the monologue and the two musical selections should not exceed two minutes.  An accompanist will be provided.  Singing a Cappella or to taped accompaniment is not allowed.  Sheet music must be provided for the accompanist. 

For a non-musical theatre production, students should prepare an extended monologue or two contrasting monologues.  The presentation should not exceed two minutes.

If you are called back for a second audition, you will be expected to do a reading from the play to be produced.  Selected portions of the script will be available in the library.

All students admitted to either the Musical Theatre or the Performance track are required to audition for theatre productions every semester that they are enrolled in the program. Exceptions for extenuating circumstances must be requested in writing at least two weeks prior to the scheduled auditions. Failure to meet these conditions will require a petition and audition for readmission to the appropriate track.
