Auditions and Casting Procedures
Any Fredonia student (regardless of major) currently enrolled and of acceptable academic standing may audition for departmental productions. Auditioning constitutes a commitment to the production. Among other things, it means that the student is willing to undertake any role assigned by the director. Announcements of auditions will be posted on the Department of Theatre and Dance bulletin board.
All BFA-Acting and BFA-Musical Theatre (Theatre track) majors are required to audition for all Departmental Mainstage Series productions. Failure to audition will result in disciplinary action and possible dismissal from the program.
On occasion a director, with the permission of the departmental chair, may elect to use Fredonia theatre faculty, alumni or professional guest artists when a given role requires maturity, knowledge and life experience that normally is not found in the undergraduate actor.
The chair of the department approves final cast lists before they are announced publicly.
