For an electronic copy of the audition application form or crew interview form, please contact either Director, Eric Thibodeaux-Thompson (ethib1@uis.edu) or Scenic Designer/Technical Director, Dathan Powell (dpowe5@uis.edu).

Work Behind the Scenes

Those interested in working backstage (stage managers, props crew, sound research, costumes, dresser, running crew) only need to attend one night of the crew interviews. Be sure to fill out a crew application form prior to the crew interviews start time via the online form and indicate the area of interest backstage. The technical director will schedule time to meet with you to discuss your area of interest.


Please fill out an audition form via the online form prior to arriving at the audition start time. Auditions will consist of “cold readings” from the script. Be prepared to make some bold choices, take some risks and have fun! Prepared monologues and headshots/resumes are appreciated, but are NOT required.

UIS Theatre invites all theatre artists to audition for roles or apply for backstage work for one of our upcoming productions. Currently enrolled UIS students are given primary consideration in casting roles and backstage assignments, as well as in determining each production. UIS Theatre strives to have our productions reflect the diversity of our world. As such, actors of all races, ethnicities, gender identifications and abilities are welcome and encouraged to audition for all of our productions.
