Potter Theatre

What do I prepare?

A 60-second monologue showing some range of teenage angst (and also suppressing that feeling)

A 32-bar cut of a rock style song. This does NOT have to be a musical theatre piece--we welcome musical theatre pieces but also would welcome any song that is appropriate to the style of the show that shows off the actor's talent. NOTE: Please do not sing from the show.

There WILL be a movement call at this dress to thrash.

Time limit:
  • Monologue - 60 seconds
  • Song - 32 bars

Callbacks are Friday, November 10 at 6PM.

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.
