For non-BYU events in the area, see events in the area.


Due to scheduling concerns related to COVID-19, we are sorry to announce that we have canceled the production of Ordinary People this Fall.


OPPORTUNITIES

Because the fall Young Company show has been temporarily cancelled due to COVID-19, we are excited to announce that we will be offering a Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) class fall 2020 instead.  The TMA 455R class will meet from 9-11:50am on Tuesdays and Thursdays (no Saturday commitments).  In this class, students will be studying more in depth TYA curriculum as well as learning how to facilitate TYA workshops, with a plan to teach workshops in public schools. If you have questions, contact professor Julia Ashworth. She’d be happy to answer any questions you might have:  Julia Ashworth julia_ashworth@byu.edu

Dear THEATRE STUDENTS: Applications are open now and will be accepted through June 1 for design, dramaturgy, and stage management positions working on theatre production in the fall 2020 and winter 2021 semesters. Please apply now at this link. Looking forward to seeing you this Fall!  If you have any questions, feel free to email Michael Kraczek at Michael_kraczek@byu.edu.


DEPARTMENT AUDITIONS

Fiddler on the Roof

Auditions will be held the week of September 7 (2nd week of the Fall semester).
More details will follow with exact times and dates. We will have the same format of a dancer/movement call and an actor/singer call.

Luna

Auditions will be held in October when the Fall semester is in session. (This Young Company production has moved from Fall to Winter semester, and has canceled As You Like It.)

Wendy and Peter Pan

On a final note, the production of Wendy and Peter Pan has been re-scheduled to run in the Margetts sometime during Fall Semester. Some roles will likely need to be re-cast, but until we have confirmation regarding the Wendy and Peter Pan company the audition process has not been determined. More information is forthcoming.

CallBoard is now recognized as the largest database of Utah Actors and Utah Auditions. We think this will be a great resource for all of our students. Actor accounts are only $10/year. This grants you access to all of the local auditions and upload your resume/headshot so that directors can contact you directly and Director accounts are Free. Our goal is to help you as a student connect with those in the industry by finding work both in the department and outside of BYU. Create an account as soon as possible with the link below. To create account, click here. The current list of Utah auditions, click here.
