Please include all audition elements listed below on your audition tape. Remember to test your audition tape for picture and sound quality before mailing it to Rowan.
Auditionees for Acting/Directing Track, Musical Theatre Track, & Pre-Teaching Track:
To prepare for your audition, choose two contrasting pieces of material which exhibit your skills and abilities. Please bring a resume of your recent performance and technical activities with you to the audition. Limit introductory remarks to a title and a few short phrases of description and limit the total time of your presentation to four minutes. Time your material carefully in advance.
First, you may present either a monologue or a speech taken from theatrical literature. Your second selection should be different in tone from your first. If your first selection is a dramatic monologue, your second might be a humorous piece or a selection from a musical comedy. Or your second might be an interpretative reading of light verse, or a musical number. But always choose material suited to your personality, sex, age, and playing ability. Make yourself look good!
If you choose to perform a song, bring a track with no vocals on either a CD or MP3 player. We will provide a CD player and an input for an MP3 player. Please, no costumes and props. We are concerned only with your performance. If you have any questions, please contact Melanie Stewart, Department Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Auditionees for the Dance Theatre Track, Dance Minor, & Dance Concentration
Please bring a resume of your recent dance experiences with you to the audition/interview. Limit introductory remarks to a title and any other production elements related to the work you will present. Limit your total presentation to five minutes. Please time yourself carefully. Plan to perform a 2-4 minute solo work. The dance work can be your own choreography or the work of another choreographer.
If you perform to recorded sound, you must bring your own accompaniment and any other production elements, i.e. costumes, props, etc. We will provide a CD player and an input for an MP3 player. If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Theatre and Dance at 856.256.4030.
Please bring a resume of your recent performance and/or technical activities with you to the interview. Be sure to include all relevant experience from school and any other outside work.
Bring a portfolio containing pictures and any drawings, drafting, or sketches you may have used in carrying out the work you have done. Programs from shows are also a good indicator of your work experience. At the interview we wish to get a sense of your future plans and your commitment to the career. If you have any questions, please contact Melanie Stewart, Department Chair, at email@example.com.
