  • All students interested in auditioning should sign-up for a Monologue and Vocal Audition time slot on the Callboard in the Stairwell of Reynolds Hall in late August.  All theatre performance students must present a memorized, 60-second monologue. (NOTE: Technical/design theatre students do NOT have to audition, but will sign up to interview for production positions on the callboard. ) Musical Theatre majors only are  required to audition for HEATHERS THE MUSICAL, but all theatre majors and UM students are welcome to audition.
  • NOTE: if you are not a theatre major, you are encouraged but not required to present a memorized monologue.
    Ideally, please prepare a 16-bar rock/pop music cut for your initial vocal audition for HEATHERS, although we will allow other selections… and bring sheet music as an accompanist will be present.   Music from the score will be provided if you are called back to sing for a specific role.
  • All students auditioning for HEATHERS… must attend the dance audition to be cast in the musical.
