Where Do I Sign Up?

  • Use the new and improved MWSU Theatre Audition Form!
  • Be aware that you will no longer be signing up for a specific time slot. Instead, actors will fill out their audition information sheet online (complete with conflicts) and then will be assigned an audition number.

While walk-ups are still welcome, early signups for these auditions are a necessity for our students.

In the meantime, begin preparing your monologues now and break-a-leg!

Additional Audition Information:

  • Community Members are encouraged to audition for all Missouri Western productions! See our casting policies for more information regarding our casting process.
  • Generally speaking, callbacks will consist of cold-readings from the show(s) being cast. This choice is at the discretion of the director.
  • Be prepared to stay at the auditions for at least one hour (unless otherwise specified).
  • Please read below for more information. Additional Information can be found on the Auditions FAQ, Auditions Etiquette and the MWSU Theatre Auditions Procedures pages.
  • Missouri Western Theatre and Music students will be required to provide 2 copies of an 8x10 photo/resume at the time of the audition.
