Auditions Home 2023-2024 Season Information Mega Audition Schedule Preparation


Welcome to the Drama Department’s Open Call Website!



New Students: Auditions for the full academic year take place 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 main stage season as well as the graduate student directors who will be directing several Drama Classroom Projects (DCPs) throughout the school year.  This is your opportunity to show the entire drama department your skill set and talent.  Everyone is highly encouraged to audition--regardless of any perceived chance of success--because:

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

Megas are often the first place faculty, graduate directors, and other members of the Drama Department meet you and have a chance to see your work as an actor.  Thus, Megas can have a positive impact on your casting opportunities throughout the academic year.

Below is information about our season and how to sign-up for an audition time. Before you audition, please make sure to read all of the following information about the 2023-24 Season. To be considered for a role for any of the shows you must attend the Mega Auditions.
