Auditions for Church and State by Jason Odell Williams

January 5, 2021

For Church and State auditions, the Department of Theatre will be taking every precaution possible to combat the spread of COVID-19 for our students, faculty, and community. For that purpose, our audition process will look different for this production.


Auditions will be a one-minute monologue in the style of or an excerpt from the play. Please record this audition in a well-lit and quiet space, and upload it to YouTube. If you are concerned about others seeing this audition tape, YouTube has an option to make your video “Unlisted.” This will allow you to share the link with us in your audition form while the video is not discoverable on the platform itself. Scripts are available for check-out in HCPA 204.


Once you have recorded and posted your audition tape, you will need to fill out the audition form, which you can access on Google Docs here: https://forms.gle/Xx2JKLeSSEfR3SWy7


Audition forms will be due by January 11, 2021, by 6 PM. If you are asked to return for callbacks, you will be contacted no later than midnight on that night by email. Callbacks will be held throughout the day on January 12 through Zoom. If you are asked to return for callbacks, you will be contacted by the stage management staff via email. That email will include the scenes you need to be familiar with before your Zoom audition session and the time your scheduled time.


The cast list will be announced on the morning of January 13, 2021, and there will be a staged reading of the play that night via Zoom.
