Production Auditions

General Audition Information

The Department of Fine and Performing Arts holds auditions for actors, singers and dancers for its Mainstage and studet led Second Stage productions throughout the academic year.

On average, the DFPA produces 3-4 Mainstage productions a year and 6-10 Second Stage projects. Depending on the time commitment, students that are cast are enrolled in THTR 323 - Rehearsal and Performance. This one-credit class, in addition to supporting the amount of time a student spends in rehearsals and performances, also serves as part of the applied knowledge in production that theatre majors will receive as part of their graduation requirements.

Incoming freshmen have the opportunity to audition for competitive scholarshipsUsually these auditions are scheduled in the February prior to a student's enrollment in the program.

Current students looking for more information regarding upcoming auditions are encouraged to join the THTR PROGRAM Sakai site. 

Functioning much like the class-specific Sakai spaces, the THTR PROGRAM Sakai is the best place to find any announcements or information regarding upcoming opportunities. Please email dfpamc@luc.edu to be added to the site. Students enrolled in theatre classes are automatically added to the site at the beginning of the semester.

Current students may also join LUC Theatre News on Facebook.
