If possible, actors should provide a picture and resume, but it is not required. Please make sure to fill out the back page of the audition information document with your class schedule for the Spring and any weekend conflicts. Performers for “Eurydice” will rehearse Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings, and Saturday mornings. Performers for “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” will rehearse Monday through Friday evenings.

To be considered for the musical, “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown,” you must sign up for the acting and singing audition, and the dance audition. These are two separate sign-up sheets.


Please prepare a music selection in the style of the show that is no longer than one minute. Non-musical theatre selections are allowed. An accompanist will be provided. You must have sheet music in the correct key. No acapella or tracks will be permitted at the audition.

Dance Call

A dance call will be held on Monday evening in the Studio Theatre. Please watch a short instructional video to view the dance moves before auditioning. Be prepared to demonstrate in small groups. Anyone who wants to be considered for the musical must sign up for both audition formats. 


Callbacks will be held on Tuesday, Nov.10. Callbacks will be posted on the bulletin board outside of the Studio Theatre and also emailed to the theatre listserve.

Because of scheduling overlaps, students cannot be cast in both productions.

Both directors may choose to have understudies. Please read all of the documents provided in the folder for these auditions.
