Please make note of the rehearsal, tech, and performance dates when signing up for auditions and filling out your audition form.
Auditions for Happenings and Dance Capstones are Monday, November 28th at 6:00PM in McInnis Hall. Check in begins at 5:30PM.
Please come warm and ready to move and dressed so that we can see your body (form-fitting clothing, bare feet, hair tied up). You do not need specialty shoes and do not need to wear a leotard/tights. You will have a short time to warm up in the space before the audition begins, but we prefer that you come warm if you can.
You will be grouped into small groups and taught a short combination to perform for the choreographers.
Auditions for Lost Girl and Silent Sky are Tuesday November 29th from 6-9 in the Empty Space Theatre.
ANYONE CAN AUDITION! We are looking for all majors, ages, and types. You do not have to be a Theater or Dance major to be cast.
Please prepare one memorized 60 second contemporary monologue. Feel free to use material that you’ve worked with before, or that you are currently working on in class. If you would like to audition, but do not have a memorized monologue, there will be a sheet with 3 monologues provided that you may choose from. You only need to present ONE monologue. Please time yourself beforehand and do not go over 60 seconds.
Please note that Theater Performance Majors are required to audition with a monologue.
Sign-in will start at 5:30PM in the Empty Space Theater, and you need to wear your number on your chest during your audition.
Dress: Professional attire, something you would wear to a job interview, but also something that does not restrict your movement as the character.
6:00pm – Meeting of all auditionees in the Empty Space Theater. We will go over procedure: Slate, where to sit with your group, where to stand for your audition, etc.
6:20pm – Auditions begin! Auditionees will enter the space in Groups of 10, and you will enter and exit as a group. All auditionees will be assigned a number and will go in that order.
7:45pm – Auditions end (at the latest).
Callbacks will be both emailed and posted on the 3rd floor callboard. Callbacks for Lost Girl will be Wednesday, November 30th from 6:00 – 9:00pm. Please be prepared to participate in a movement call and read sides from the script. (Movement does NOT mean dance, in this case. It refers to working in a group on your feet).
