Students are expected to arrive promptly, to be prepared, and to be in the
appropriate dress. Students should always wear hair and clothing styles that make them look
attractive and professional; sloppiness is never appropriate for any kind of audition. If a student
has a question about preparing for the audition, the student should ask the director early enough
to make the necessary preparations. Students are also expected to come to auditions with the
dates of any commitments that may fall during the rehearsal/performance period, and write
them on the audition form.

Students are expected to accept cast and crew positions to which they are assigned.
Students should have audition materials chosen at least two (2) weeks in advance. Faculty
