Audition Part I: 
Use the following text and ingredients to create a 1-minute piece of performance. I am looking for your curiosity, your creativity, your playfulness, and your bravery. I want to see you risk, but I will not allow physically dangerous behavior. If you aren’t sure, come talk to me. 

Text: You may use as much of the text as you like in any way you like but you must use some of this text and only this text. 

Oh, gender fit for boning up the butt! 
No wonder we’re the stuff of tragedies: 
Some guy, a bit of nookie, and a brat. 
But you, sweet foreigner, if you alone
Stand with me, then we still could save the day. 
Give me your vote. 

Ingredients: You must use all of the ingredients. You may use them in any combination you desire and you may repeat ingredients. The piece must have a beginning, a middle, and an end and it will be timed. 

  • A look at the sky
  • A use of levels
  • A turn
  • A dance 
  • A game
  • An animal
  • A circle
  • A loss
  • A moment of magic
  • A revelation of space
  • An exit 
  • An entrance
  • A trick
  • A kiss
  • A moment of you (an -ism)

Audition Part II:
Tell me a joke. 

Audition Part III: 
You will be asked to create something in the room. It will be short and painless. You can’t prepare for this part. Just breathe. 

For both shows:

  • Please fill out an Auditions Information sheet.  These are available on the website, in the Theatre Office Askanase 107 and will be available the night of the auditions from the stage manager.
  • Please bring your fall schedule so you can fill out any conflicts you may have.
  • If you have a headshot and a resume please bring one for each director.
  • If you are not an NDSU Theatre major and are interested in auditioning but you are not sure if you can or how to prepare for the audition, please sign up and come anyway.  We welcome participants from the Tri-College and all majors.  Theatre NDSU has an open audition policy.
