The Department of Theatre Arts produces four main stage shows each year. All Towson University undergraduate students are welcome to audition for these plays. Auditions are held the semester previous to the production: Fall plays are cast in February, and spring plays are cast in October.
Specific audition dates will be announced by the Department of Theatre Arts. You can also call the department for more information, 410-704-2792.
If You are Cast in a Play
We ask that all students audition only if they have the best intention to accept the role in which they are cast.
If you turn down a role, the department will not provide you an opportunity to audition again for a one-year probationary period. (Majors will be held to the probation as stated in the department's Undergraduate Handbook.)
MFA and Undergraduate Student-Directed Shows
The department also produces plays directed by undergraduate students and MFA students.
MFA shows have open auditions, and can cast from undergraduate students, MFA students or from the community.
Undergraduate student-directed plays must cast from the Towson University undergraduate population.
Do we do musicals?
Yes. In the same way we do Shakespeare. Although we are not a Musical Theatre program, we do a musical every two years as part of the student training.
How do I prepare for the audition?
Generally we ask for a monologue and singing (for musicals). We do, however, change our auditions to best fit the needs of the directors. Call four weeks before auditions with any questions.
How do I
sign up to audition?
Come to the department to sign up for a time.
