Auditions are not required to participate in our curricular offerings or to become a major, however we do hold auditions for several productions throughout the year. These auditions are open to all students, regardless of major or experience, and no preparation is necessary.
There are additional audition opportunities throughout each semester for student-produced scenes and productions.
