Spring 2017 Radio Drama Auditions

From the Director, Chris Nelson

This semester I am looking to cast a group of writers, voice actors  and a production manager to help the department develop its serial radio program – The Encounter. The goal of the radio drama this semester will be twofold: 1) Develop scripts for Season 4 and 2) Record Season 3.  Voice talent and writers will meet on various Wednesday evenings from 5-8pm throughout the semester.  Writers will meet with me during the script development phase of the semester during an agreed-upon time during the day.

Students from all disciplines and departments are welcome to audition.

Please remember that this is a 1 credit class; if cast or chosen as a writer, you will need to sign up for either THEA 200, THEA 300, or THEA 400.


Auditions

Auditions will be held Saturday, Jan. 14 from 1-6 p.m. in Green Hall, Room 1878 (Theatre Department Conference Room)

  • Writers: Those interested in being a part of the writing team are asked to bring 2 pages of original dialogue. The dialogue should be typed with 12pt. font. Please use the following prompt when crafting your dialogue:
    • Two friends, running away to elope, discover a dying tree that has a secret that will affect them for the rest of their lives.
  • Performance: Those interested in performing will be given copy at the audition for a cold read. Please be aware, your audition will be recorded.
    • This semester's radio drama cast will be involved in the development of Season 2 of The Encounter. Script readings and retakes will be the focus.
  • Production: The Production Manager (similar to a Stage Manager) will assist in coordinating rehearsals, recordings, and overseeing the production.

*All auditions will include a short interview, and will last approximately 10 minutes. Students may come and go as their schedule allows; there is no sign up required. Students will be seen in the order in which they arrive.

In order to expedite the audition process, please download and fill out the Radio Drama Audition Form, and bring it with you to the audition.

If you have any questions about auditioning for the radio drama please send all emails to Chris Nelson.
