I'm an Eastman student. Can I audition?
Yes! We'd love you to.
I'm not a UR student, can I audition?
Sorry! Auditions are only open to undergraduate and graduate students currently registered at the UR.
What if I don't have a monologue?
Show up, we'll give you something to read.What if I've never acted before?
It doesn't matter. If you don't try out, you'll never give yourself the chance you deserve!
Can I bring in a poem/piece of prose/something I wrote, instead of a monologue?
Sure, bring in anything that you think will show you off in the best light.
Do I have to memorize my audition piece?
We generally find that helps, but if it's going to cause you undue stress don't worry about it.
