Trinity Theatre holds an audition workshop so students can learn more about the audition process. Theater auditions are held at various times during the year; these are announced by way of the Trinity University Theatre email list.
How Auditions at Trinity Work
Trinity produces four faculty-directed main stage productions a year, as well as a number of smaller “lab” productions—directed, designed, and managed by students. Auditions for main stage and lab shows happen separately. Lab productions hold separate auditions at various times during the year; these are announced on the Stieren lobby callboard and through email.
For main stage productions, we welcome all Trinity students, First-Years through Seniors, regardless of major. Don’t be intimidated if you’re a First-Year; new students get cast regularly, in all kinds of roles!
Because we audition students for two main stage productions at a time, auditions for our main stage shows happen twice a year:
- August, just as classes are beginning
- Early in December, just as classes are winding down
You need only sign up for one audition slot on one of those days. At the close of auditions, the directors will post (via email) the names of those actors they wish to see for call backs. Times will be announced via email as well. During call back auditions, actors will be asked to read from the text of the shows they are called back for and participate in other kinds of audition activities (movement, improvisation, theater games, etc.), depending on the demands of a given production. Call back may take place in two separate spaces, the Stieren Theater and/or the Attic Theater, our "black box" space. Both locations are within the Ruth Taylor Theatre Building.
