Drake Theatre, 20-21 Production Auditions

Every student intending to audition for the department’s shows please prepare and present a video-recorded audition. The video auditions will be viewed by the faculty & student directors and casting decisions for the entire year will be made from your video auditions. The due date for your video auditions to be uploaded is August 15, 2020. No late audition submissions will be accepted. 

This year we are moving to a virtual audition form. For those returning, the form should look very similar to the form we have used previously.  You are required to fill out each field in order to submit- so make sure to have all materials and information gathered before starting the form. All will be required to attach your headshot and resume.  If you are auditioning for the musical, you will also have to attach an mp3 of your accompaniment track.  You will also be required to submit a YouTube or Vimeo link to your video audition.  The link to the Google form is below:

 Please email Adam (adam.yankowy@drake.edu) if you have any questions or problems with the google form. 

 Both student mainstage directors and both STP directors will be casting from these same audition videos. There will not be a separate audition event held for the STP’s. We will be bringing a guest director to campus to direct the final play of our upcoming season. This person will view the video auditions to get an understanding of the talent pool of the department. Knowing the pool will help this person to select a title that is better suited both to your learning needs and the department’s abilities. This guest director may also cast from the video auditions, but only if it becomes necessary, they could call a separate audition.
