Upcoming Auditions

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, our top priority has been to offer exciting and innovative productions while also maintaining the safety of our students and audiences. Last year's 2020-21 theatrical season explored productions in new ways, including a theatrical-videogame experience, plays adapted for film, and live digital-theatre performances. This year's season hopes for a return to more traditional performances taking place on a stage before live audiences. We've created a season that has something for everyone, and though we don't know what new challenges the pandemic might bring, we want to remind you that we are here, and we will be here with you, brainstorming new approaches for how best to create theatre in this ever-changing landscape.

Thank you to all who auditioned for our Spring 2022 productions! More information on future auditions will be posted at the end of this semester. Please email performingarts@rit.edu with any questions.

Casting note for Men On Boats:
The 10 cisgender, white, male characters in both Men On Boats and the true, original 1869 expedition are being portrayed by a cast made up of racially diverse actors who are female-identifying, trans-identifying, genderfluid, and/or non-gender conforming, as intended by the playwright. The two Native characters in the play--the Ute chief, Tsauwiat, and Tsauwiat’s wife, The Bishop--are being portrayed by BIPOC-identifying actors, also as intended by the playwright. It is the strong belief of the playwright and of everyone on our team that those specific characters are played by BIPOC actors, and they are. We are committed to creating a safe and inclusive space.
