Those Interested in Working Backstage

Those interested in working backstage (stage managers, props crew, sound research, costumes, dresser, running crew) are asked to attend one night of these auditions, fill out an audition form, and indicate the area of interest as backstage. The production team will take a few minutes to meet with you to discuss your area of interest.


Please fill out an audition form when you arrive prior to the auditions 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 resumes are appreciated, but are NOT required.

UIS THEATRE invites all theatre artists to audition for roles or apply for backstage work in 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.
