Auditions

The Theatre Department invites ALL STUDENTS to Audition for the Spring 2023 faculty directed productions 

Friday, November 4 from 6 to 9 pm at Mahaney Arts Center, Room 232 


Interested in getting involved in productions not as a performer? Stop by the Tech Info Table in the lobby outside

Interested in being part of a production but not as a performer? There’s more to theatre than what the audience sees! You can enroll in THEA0210 as a stage manager or assistant stage manager (requires permission from director), or enroll in THEA129 and create lighting, scenery, and props. Student shows need designers, stage managers and  light and sound board operators.

Stop by the Tech Info Table in the MAC lobby outside MAC 232 during auditions or email rimmer@middlebury.edu for more information!


Somewhere by Marisela Treviño Orta

Directed by Olga Sanchez Saltveit, performances on April 6-8, Seeler Studio Theatre

Stranded in the apocalypse, two families cross paths in ways that transform their lives and the future of the world…


Hamlet by William Shakespeare

Directed by Alex Draper, performances on May 4-6, Wright Memorial Theatre

This 2-hour version of Shakespeare’s classic will feature 10 actors who all take on the role of Hamlet.  


Student Productions TBD


Additional Information:

Come to the MAC lobby at 5:45pm to sign up for a slot. We will hear people individually in the order they have signed up. All are requested to have a 45 - 60 second monologue, and heightened language* is preferred but not required. Memorization and preparation are strongly preferred.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are unable to attend auditions in person, please send a short video of your monologue to Alex Draper & Olga Sanchez Saltveit. Videos received by Thursday Nov 3rd will be considered for the callbacks.

Need a Monologue?

Bring your own or the Theatre Department has a few options available for you here (you must be signed in to Google with your College credentials).

Classical and contemporary texts that feature heightened language* can be found here

Heightened language is text that has elements, often poetic, that lift it beyond everyday speech.

Callbacks

  • Callbacks will be held the weekend of Nov 5th & 6th, perhaps extending into the following week. All Students will be contacted via email.
  • Final cast lists will be emailed and posted (on the Theatre bulletin board) prior to fall registration.
