Audition Details

Auditions for the fall 2024 productions of Everybody and Into the Woods are in April at the University Center for the Arts. The UCA is located at 1400 Remington St.

Auditions will consist of a 1-minute monologue and 32-bars of a song and can also include some talent you wish to showcase.

Monologue: The monologue should be adapted language from classics written by contemporary playwrights.
The source material for the monologue can be from antiquity to the medieval period, but the monologue should come from a play written in the last 50 years (1970 to today). Students can reach out to faculty for support finding a monologue.

The song should be either a piece written by Sondheim or something you feel represents the style of Into the Woods.

Talent (optional): The actor can present 30 seconds of any talent they choose to share. This talent can include playing an instrument, gymnastics, dance, magic, martial arts, or whatever else you think might be interesting.
