University of Iowa Theatre will hold its fall auditions Aug. 23-26. More than 80 roles in a dozen productions in the Mainstage, Gallery, and Workshop series and staged readings of the UI Department of Theatre Arts will be cast.
General auditions will be held from 6 to 11 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Aug. 23-24. Callbacks will be held beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 25-26. Casting will be announced at 10 p.m. Aug. 26, and some productions will begin rehearsals on Monday, Aug. 27.
Audition sign-up will begin on Monday, Aug. 20. To sign up for a slot, or to get additional information, visit the department's wiki.
Auditions for UI Theatre productions are open to everyone. For academic considerations, priority is given to theatre arts majors, and then all other students of the University of Iowa. Members of the greater Iowa City community are also strongly encouraged to audition.
Many excellent roles are available throughout the year, and many non-majors and actors from the surrounding community are cast each season. Occasionally, professional guest actors will also be employed.
"Non-traditional" casting is the norm for directors in all productions, except those in which race, gender, disability, or age is the explicit issue. Casting is "non-traditional" when all roles in a script are open to casting without bias in terms of race, gender, disability, or age, so long as the actor can fulfill the artistic requirements of the role.
First-time UI auditioners are invited to attend an audition workshop at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 22, in Theatre B.
