General Auditions will be held on Tuesday, January 14th from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Anyone interested is welcome to audition, though Performance majors are required

These General Auditions will be used to cast several shows this semester such as the final Mainstage production: Titanic, the Spring student lab show: Eight to Eighteen, the second season show: The Lesson. There will be a list posted on the backstage callboard on which you will sign up for your audition time.

What to Prepare:

A 1 minute memorized monologue from a play of your choosing.

What is Expected:

-Arrive in the Green Room (CA 1099) 15 minutes prior to your audition time.

-Check in with the Stage Management team and fill out required forms.

-Wait in the Green Room until you are cued by an SM team member.

-Once in the audition space, walk to center stage and state your name, major, year (Freshman, Sophomore, etc.), and audition piece.

-Perform your prepared monologue. You will be stopped if you exceed the time limit of 60 seconds.

-At the end of your monologue, restate your name.


For Those Auditioning for Titanic: (a message from the director)

Due to the nature of "Titanic" and the comedy of Christopher Durang, everyone should read "Titanic" to make sure you are comfortable with the material and can commit to text and physicality without reservation. If any of the text or physical situations would make you uncomfortable to perform in front of an audience, please indicate on your audition form that you do not wish to be considered for being cast in "Titanic".
