Department of Theatre auditions and productions are open to ALL students enrolled at OSU, regardless of major or rank.
We hold open auditions on a semesterly basis. For the shows that are produced in Autumn semester, auditions are held the first week of Autumn semester. For Spring productions, auditions are held in the middle of Autumn semester. Audition requirements vary - see online registration for specific details.
Sign-up sheets for auditions are posted on the Monday of the week before auditions outside Room 107 of the Drake Performance and Event Center. Online registration is available here.
During auditions, we ask that you arrive 15 minutes early in case the auditions have moved quicker than expected. There is an information sheet you will fill out and then you will be escorted into the audition room. Inside will be directors for the shows currently casting as well as the Head of Acting/Directing. Following the first round of auditions, a call-back list is posted outside Room 107. If you are listed, there will be specific directions as to when you need to arrive and what you need to bring/wear/prepare for the call-backs. Whether or not you are cast, we encourage you to make an appointment with the Head of the Acting/Directing area to get feedback on your audition.
