Auditions for the Performing Arts Department 2019-2020 Season
ALL Washington University students are welcome to audition regardless of major or minor!
The Performing Arts Department is committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity on stage, backstage, and in the classroom. We welcome all Washington University students to audition for our 2019-2020 season, including those with a lot of theatre experience, and those with none at all. Students of all genders, ethnic and racial backgrounds, and abilities will be considered for all roles, unless a script explicitly calls for roles to be cast in a certain way. In these cases, we honor the playwright’s expressed intentions.
