Early Auditions for Spring 2019 Shows

The auditions will be used to try to cast the show in part or full. In the event we cannot fully cast or a cast member drops over the winter break, we will use the spring auditions to continue to fill and cast the shows. Our goal is to cast directly from our pool of students before reaching outside of our community.

  • December 5 and 6, 6-8:30 p.m. in the Angelina Pedroso Center
  • Callbacks: December 7, 6-8:30 p.m. in the Angelina Pedroso Center

Notice to Off-Loop non-union actors

The theatre program within the Department of Communication, Media and Theatre is a liberal arts program serving the whole University community. Since the beginning, the program has had an open casting policy, which means roles are open to students, faculty, staff and people from the Chicago area. Typically, we find that Off-Loop actors are motivated to audition for roles in the University productions to get the opportunity to play specific roles or to add more evidence of experience to their resumes.

Roles are non-paying, and directors are encouraged to cast students for the majority of roles.
