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

Megas are important for your entire career at UCI. This is the first place Faculty, Graduate Actors, and Graduate Directors will see your work, whom will be casting their own projects throughout the 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 2022-23 Season. To be considered for a role for any of the shows you must attend the Mega Auditions.

All Season Information is Subject to change

Production Schedules for each production can be found on the UCI Drama Digital Callboard.
