Auditions for students studying off-campus in the fall semester (so either in NY, DC, etc or somewhere else abroad) will occur on Sunday, Aug. 26.
For O War, the auditions will take place from 9 to 11 am, and auditionees are asked to be present the entire time frame.
For Mr. Burns, the auditions will take place in 5-minute time slots from 12 noon onward, and callbacks will be happening as well throughout the auditions on a case-by-case basis. Actors should plan to stay through the evening if they intend on auditioning for this piece.
For Love & the Law, our student-directed musical festival, there will be a short movement call for all intended auditionees from 11:30 to 12, and then 5-minute audition slots from 12 onward.
To sign up for an audition slot, please email email@example.com with your Name, Cell Phone Number, and the shows you intend to audition for. You will then be assigned appropriate time slots. Scripts will be emailed back to you when you sign up.
Students are required to find their own housing, etc if they would like to come a day before or stay the night of. Those students studying in New York are encouraged to attend these separate auditions, though it is possible to come to the regular auditions at the end of the semester. However, those audition dates have not yet been determined.
