School of Theater Spring 2023 Unified Auditions
Casting is open to all full-time degree-seeking Mason students, regardless of major, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. Students audition for all shows to be produced in the semester in one session. Auditions for productions will be held in person on January 25 and 26, from 6 pm to 9 pm in TheaterSpace.
This spring, we have the opportunity to be back together for in-person productions. As in previous years, on-time attendance for rehearsals and performances is required. Unless otherwise stated by the director(s), all rehearsals (except for 1,001 Plays) will be conducted in person (Eastern Standard Time).
In the Blackboard Organization: SoT Spring 23 Audition Portal, you can submit your audition materials (i.e., headshot and resume) as an assignment and sign up for an in-person audition slot through Sign-up Genius or put a video audition submission or a link to it (also as an assignment). Whether you audition in person or submit a video, callback auditions on January 28 will be in person. Performance dates and general rehearsal information will also be available at that time.
Audition Notes (more information will follow after the form is submitted):
The Night Knights is a devised piece for young children with a cast of 6-7 actors.
The Hunchback of Seville depicts colonialism, genocide, racism, and ableism through a satiric lens. Two characters will have some intimacy, including a kiss.
The Road to the End deals with themes of death, sickness, hospitals, neglect, trauma, and contains strong language.
