The Program in Theater will hold auditions for shows in the upcoming 2018 – 2019 season on September 10-11 and the week of October 8th.

No experience necessary. We especially welcome students who have never performed, or haven’t performed since the first grade!

It will be possible to get course credit for participating in Mad Dreams, Fun Home or Machinal next year through course THR 451, taught and directed by Bob Sandberg. Although it will not be essential to take the course in order to participate in the production, you will need to be available for certain rehearsal times.

For further audition questions, please contact Carmelita Becnel at
