Theatre Northwest announces auditions for spring productions

Northwest Missouri State University students of all majors are invited to audition for Mainstage and student-directed Lab Series productions for Theatre Northwest’s spring season, including the University’s biennial musical “Footloose: The Musical.”

Theatre Northwest’s 2017-2018 season, under the theme “Identity,” continues this spring with “A Spring Evening of One-Acts,” Feb. 2-3; “Still Life with Iris” by Steven Dietz, Feb. 22-25; and “Time Stands Still” by Donald Margulies, April 20-21; in addition to “Footloose,” April 5-7.  


“Footloose” auditions

Students auditioning for “Footloose” should prepare for a 15-minute audition that includes up to two minutes of singing.

An accompanist will be provided and students must bring their own sheet music in the key they wish to sing. Recorded accompaniments also may be used, but students must bring their own CD players or computers.

Students will also present two contrasting monologues of no more than two minutes in length (required for theatre majors) or one monologue of no more than two minutes. Monologues will be provided for non-theatre majors at the audition.

Audition forms are available in Room 101 of the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building and in the theatre graduate office at the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts. Students should bring four completed copies of the forms to their audition.

Students should sign up for an audition time at and arrive in the Charles Johnson Theater lobby 15 minutes prior to your audition time.
