    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:
