For visual assistance with where the Black Box Theatre in Building 5 is and where to park, here is a link to the campus map, as well as the Building 5 Student Center.

The Black Box is located on the quad side (East side) of the building. If you enter by the Fountain on the East/Quad side of the building, the Black Box is around the corner to the left, following the tiled floor. If you enter by Trail Point Wellness Center, the Black Box is past Trail Point, past Café X, and across from Subway on the right hand side.


Auditions will be held April 29 & 30 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Sign up to audition with this Audition Form. This has important questions about your availability, which we ask that you please thoroughly communicate.

Audition Form

If you have any issues on the day and/or time of the audition, please email our Production Manager, Rachel, with updates.


You do not need to memorize any dialogue, but we encourage you to familiarize yourself with dialogue for roles that you feel you are a strong fit for or want to play. We would also like you to know that it is quite possible you will be asked to read only one of the sides, and you may be asked to read any of the scenes with a wide range of directorial notes. If you feel more comfortable, you may want to print your own sides, though we will have provided copies at auditions.

Links to download the sides can be found below.
