Auditions will be by private appointment. You will sign up online for a 4-minute slot. Please arrive at the general auditions at least 20 minutes prior to your appointment so you can fill out an actor information sheet. Please bring your Spring class schedule with you so you can enter your evening and weekend conflicts on the info sheet. 

To prepare for General Auditions:
Please prepare two (2) contrasting monologues, not to exceed a combined total of three (3) minutes. Apologies in advance, but due to scheduling constraints, we will ask you to stop at the three-minute limit. 

In addition, we ask that you prepare a short selection from a song since all three productions require some singing. Please provide your own music playback system. 

It is recommended that you not prepare monologues from any of the three plays being produced this Fall. 

After the two days of general auditions, the callback lists for all three Fall productions will be posting online Friday evening (Oct. 17). Please check the three callback lists carefully, as you may be called back for more than one production. Callbacks will be held in three separate blocks, one for each production (posted above). Cast lists will be posted Sunday evening, October 21 at drama.uga.edu.

To prepare for Callbacks: 
1. Read each of the Fall 2018 plays in advance of auditions and familiarize yourself with them. 
2. Study the sides from the scripts that each director will have posted online (sides are short excerpts of the script).
3. Dress comfortably since you may be asked to participate in movement exercises during callbacks.
4. Make choices about how you are going to interpret the sides you will be reading during callbacks. 
6. Conduct yourself with patience, professionalism, eagerness, and collegiality.
7. This may be self-evident but you must attend callbacks to be cast in the season.

The sign-up sheet will be located online at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0b4ca5ad2fa6f85-ugatheatre4
