PLEASE NOTE: We are only auditioning and casting for the FALL 2020 productions of Back Home, She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms at this time. (Additional auditions and casting for the remainder of the seaon will happen in September.)

 

Welcome to the Drama Department’s Open Call Announcement 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

Before you audition, please make sure to read all of the following information about the 2020-2021 Season, Audition Schedule, and any Preparation Materials.  

 

At this time, all UCI 2020-2021 prodcutions are planned as Digital Productions or Zoom Events until otherwise cleared by both UCI Officials and State and Local Health Officials. "Presentation" (performance) weeks are also subject to change. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we plan for virtual productions.
