Auditions for the 2017-18 Season

All auditions are open to any BU student. We do sometimes have specific productions that hold auditions for the wider community to include faculty, staff, and/or community members. We will announce those auditions here as well. To read more about the upcoming season visit the Current Season page.

Upcoming Auditions

Machinal (Mainstage Production)
Initial auditions on Monday, November 13 and callbacks on Thursday, November 16.
Temporary Theatre Laboratory (McCormick 2314)

From Dr. Blasenak, director of Machinal: "The rehearsals of Machinal will require an ensemble with well-focused mental, physical, and social skills. Therefore, the initial auditions will be a 25-minute movement and improvisation workshop followed by a collaborative rehearsal and staging of the audition side (available in the dropbox and on BOLT) from the first scene of the play. Please be prepared to do any or all of the roles. You are free to meet up with your fellow auditionees beforehand if you want to assign roles amongst yourselves. Because there are 5 roles in the side, I encourage groups of up to 10 actors to audition in each hour-long slot. Come prepared to move, sing, and listen to each other."
