Spring 2024 Mainstage Auditions

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


Auditions will be held on Friday, October 27th and Saturday, October 28th for two of our spring 2024 mainstage productions: The Pages Festival (student-written playwriting festival) and The Importance of Being Earnest.
Auditions will be held from 7-10pm on Friday and from 11am-2pm on Saturday in the Chapel Theatre. Callbacks will be held sometime between Saturday evening and Tuesday 10/31, day and time to be determined.

Audition Requirements

Theatre majors should prepare a one minute monologue featuring modern classic language. What does that mean? Not Shakespeare, but also not Arthur Miller. It should feature heightened language and/or language that doesn't reflect 21st-Century English. Anything between Congreve and Coward. Who are they? Look them up!

Non-majors can prepare a monologue using the criteria above but do not have to. Sides will be available.

All students auditioning can also expect to cold read from a provided side (that is to say, without any preparation).
