Audition Process

Prep: You should familiarize yourself with the script. Be prepared to do cold readings from the script. If you have a monologue, Ray would love to hear it. Be prepared for movement if needed.

We are also looking for people to work on crews, including stage management, marketing, and production. If you are a currently enrolled student, you may enroll in COM 131 for 1 credit depending on your credit load and financial aid status.

Over a seven-week period there will be approximately 22 rehearsals, the majority of which will be Tuesdays and Thursdays in the afternoon 3 – 5 p.m.  and evening 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. and Monday and Wednesday evenings or as schedules dictate.
