Welcome to the Drama Department’s Open Call Announcement and Sign-Up Website!

New Students: Auditions for the full academic year are in the fall at what we refer to as "Mega-Auditions," or "Megas."   During Megas, students have the opportunity to audition for all the directors of the season as well as the graduate student directors who will be directing several drama classroom projects throughout the school year. This is your opportunity to show the entire drama department your skill set and talent.  Everyone is always highly encouraged to audition--regardless of any perceived chance of success--because:

  1. An audition is your chance to show the director what they need
  2. It gets you in front of several directors who will be auditioning for future roles down the line
  3. Auditioning is a very important skill to practice

Below is information about our season and how to sign-up for an audition time. Audition sign-ups occur on a first come, first serve basis.  Before you audition, please make sure to read all of the following information about the 2018-19 Season:
