Audition and Casting Policy and Procedures
An open casting policy exists for all Mainstage (Culbreth and Helms) and Lab Series productions. All students, faculty, staff, and Charlottesville community members are encouraged to audition.
Please see below for additional information on casting procedures. The only exception to the open casting policy occurs in the second and third years of the graduate actors' careers. These actors will be pre-cast in suitable thesis roles as an integral part of their advanced training.
Helms/Lab Series Auditions
Audition Preparation for Mainstage Productions
Performers will be screened in these general auditions and selected for callbacks where readings from individual scripts will be the primary audition material. Some directors may also ask actors to improvise. Actors auditioning for musicals may be required to dance. Actors should arrive at least fifteen minutes before their scheduled audition time.
Audition Information Sheets
The actor will be required to provide directors with specific information such as address, phone number, previous performance experience and availability for rehearsals. Actors should declare all known conflicts at the time of the general audition.
