The Department of Theatre Arts holds open auditions and invites all students, regardless of major, to audition. Faculty, staff, and community members are also welcome to participate.
Directors make casting decisions based upon the following:
Auditions are typically comprised of cold readings from the script. However, they may also include improvisation, movement studies, and dialect readings. Musical auditions require each individual to prepare at least sixteen bars from a previously produced musical (accompaniment is provided). Please bring a copy of your sheet music.
Auditions are announced at least two weeks prior to the audition date via departmental email, ETBU This Week, Tiger Daily, and the website.
If you have questions about the audition process, the time commitment involved, or about a particular production, please do not hesitate to contact the faculty of the Department of Theatre Arts.
