Theatre Season – Student Auditions

Fall 2014 Theatre Season Audition Requirements

We are auditioning for two fall productions; God of Carnage  and the musical Cabaret. Call 205-665-6210 or e-mail Dr. David Callaghan at with any questions.


  • Unless you are a technical/design theatre major, performance theatre majors must present a memorized monologue audition (60 seconds)
  • All theatre students are welcome to audition for CABARET, but it is only required for musical theatre majors
  • Students from any major on campus are welcome to audition for GOD OF CARNAGE or CABARET
  • You must sign up for an appointment time for a monologue and a vocal audition for CABARET on the callboard in the stairwell of Reynolds Hall
  • Monologues for non-Theatre majors ONLY will be provided at the auditions, although try and memorize one if possible
  • For CABARET vocal auditions, prepare a short 16 bar musical theatre selection and our preference is that you bring sheet music. We will allow non theatre majors to sing a’ capella without sheet music. An accompanist will be present at the auditions.
  • To be cast in CABARET, you must also attend the required dance audition.
