COVID-19 AUDITION UPDATE

Department of Theatre and Dance productions are open to all College of Charleston students regardless of major and as such the Department welcomes any (and every) student to audition.

Due to the changes being put in place because of the pandemic, the productions for the fall semester have been changed. There will be a variety of performance opportunities that allow for processes such as hybrid virtual/in-person rehearsal, in-person rehearsals and all virtual rehearsals, depending on the production. These will include produced and streamed plays, a radio play, virtual theatre and dance pieces and filmed dance offerings. More information will be posted about the various opportunities as the semester begins.

The following two shows for which auditions are now open are scheduled to be produced and streamed from the Emmett Robinson stage. Both shows will be performed in masks, using social distancing, with no live in-person audience. Both shows will be streamed online. (We recognize that the COVID-related situation could change at any point, and we are making plans for some type of performance no matter what our in-person class situation is.)

If you have not already submitted an audition video and would like to audition, please submit a video via FlipGrid. Please submit one contemporary monologue of no more than 90 seconds.
