WHERE: Masquer Theatre of the PARTV Center (University of Montana)

WHO:  Open to anyone who is a high-school graduate; however, non-Theatre & Dance students must register with Administrative Associate Erin McDaniel (erin.mcdaniel@umontana.edu) prior to being given an audition or portfolio-review slot as well as pay a nominal registration fee

REGISTRATION: Auditions/interviews may be scheduled beginning December 1, 2017.
DEADLINE: The priority registration deadline for participants is January 8, 2018.

 

Actors
Prepare a TWO- or TWO-AND-A-HALF-MINUTE audition: two contrasting monologues totaling no more than two minutes, plus a 30-second song if they choose.

From 12:15-1P, there will be a dance callback for selected actors with choreography that will be taught at that time

Individual company callbacks will begin at 1:15P or at 2P.

All actors will be required to provide a current headshot and resume electronically to Erin no later than Monday, January 15, 2018. Copies to be distributed to all companies will be organized by Professionals Weekend Stage Managers.

Design/Technology
Portfolio reviews will begin at approximately 9A on Sunday, January 21, in the University Center. Participants will present a flat portfolio (DIGITAL PORTFOLIOS CANNOT BE SUPPORTED) in a 10-minute session with three different rooms of professionals. Each session will consist of a five-minute presentation of the flat portfolio, followed by a five-minute Q&A-style interview. Each participant should bring 20 copies of his/her current resume for distribution.
