The Indiana University Department of Theatre, Drama, and Contemporary Dance is committed to diversity in its production seasons and casting of roles. By definition this means considering and casting actors of color in any role and/or production presented by the Department. The Department is also dedicated to exploring and implementing non-traditional casting.
Auditions for regular season IU Theatre productions in the Halls and Wells-Metz Theatres are open to all registered students of Indiana University Bloomington. With the exception of thesis roles for M.F.A. actors, no role is pre-cast.
Directors and other members of a production team will not invite an actor or actors to audition for their production. If, after open auditions, a director cannot cast a role, that director may contact students to audition or to consider doing a role in that production.
If a director who is not yet auditioning, but knows he or she may want to consider using an actor who is auditioning for another director, he or she may contact that director to discuss the actor’s casting.
In IU Theatre productions, three M.F.A. acting students should be cast in any one production, if possible.
M.F.A. acting students with acting fellowships will audition for all regular season IU Theatre productions for which they are available.
M.F.A. acting students with teaching fellowships who are teaching a full load must perform each year in at least two regular season IU Theatre productions. Beginning with the first production of the year, they must audition for all productions until this requirement is met.
While M.F.A. acting students may express role preferences at the time of auditions, they must accept roles as cast.
The first six productions of the season will be cast during the first semester. Because the first three productions usually audition during the first two weeks of classes, directors may hold group auditions if they so choose. The fourth, fifth, and sixth productions may audition separately. The seventh and eighth productionis will be cast during the spring semester, and auditions may be held together or separately. This schedule is subject to change.
