THEATER PROGRAM STUDENT AUDITIONS

Open to all Princeton students. No experience required!

The Programs in Theater and Music Theater will hold auditions in mid-October for a diverse season of 18 classics, contemporary theater and music theater, and student-created pieces. Some student theater groups will also participate in these auditions. Performing roles, production and design opportunities are all available to freshmen – a great way to dive in right away to Princeton’s exciting theater community! No experience required in any area. There are additional opportunities for run crew and stage management positions; if interested please contact Carmelita Becnel, cbecnel@pricneton.edu.

 

OCTOBER 10, 4:30 – 6 pm: Beginners Audition Workshop with Peter Kim

For anyone who would like to try out auditioning on campus but has little or no experience. Please RSVP to Janecox@princeton.edu


OCTOBER 16 – 17, 5 – 9 pm: General music theater auditions

In these general auditions for all of the season’s music theater pieces, which include many styles of musical expression, we welcome students of all level of experience (or lack thereof) who would like to sing in a piece of music theater, in roles and ensembles of all sizes. Each student will sign up for a five minute slot.

Experienced students should prepare a 32-bar cut of a song that shows off their vocal range, acting abilities, and personality. They should bring sheet music with cuts clearly marked. They should bring other song options if they have them. Less experienced and new to music theater students should not be afraid to attend without sheet music. Students can sing a cappella, with their own accompaniment if they bring it (such as a guitar) or can simply sing “Happy Birthday”. We hope to have varying levels of experience in the room.

Call backs for specific shows will be held later in the week and over the weekend.

OCTOBER 17 – 18, 5 – 9 pm: General theater auditions

In these general auditions for the theater season, including our Spring Show which is run as a course for credit, students will sign up for a five minute slot in each audition room. Each audition room will have a few directors from different season events and shows. We especially welcome students who have never performed, or haven’t performed since the first grade!

Ideally, students should prepare up to one minute of material for performance. You may choose your own performance material or monolog to bring, or you may use one of the pieces that will be posted at the link below. You may choose to memorize this material, but are not obligated to do so. We will also have printed monologs from the plays available at the site in case you decide to join us on the spur of the moment.

Call backs for specific shows will be held later in the week and over the weekend.

ALL students need to sign up for 2 slots, 1 in each room — Sign up here AND here
