This two minutes can be used however you would like: one monologue of considerable range; two contrasting monologues; one song of considerable range; a monologue and a song; etc. An accompanist will be provided. Bringing your own accompaniment is not allowed. There will not be a dance audition.

Technical and Other Professionals: There will NOT be tech interviews on September 30th. However, like in previous years, technical theatre and other professionals (designers, directors, choreographers, etc.) are encouraged to submit their resumes to be distributed to the producers. Tech professionals can skip Step #1 below since they will not be in attendance on September 30th.  Please fill out the registration form, pay the registration fee of $10, and send your professional materials to Andrew Protopapas directly and include a short message in the body of the email specifying that you are submitting as a technical professional.

As in years past, each auditionee will fill out a registration form to provide the Unified Audition staff and the producers of attending theatre companies with necessary information.  This year, we would like each auditionee to provide no more than six highlighted roles as they appear on your resume.  These will be used along with your headshot and the other information from the registration form to create an actor profile sheet that all producers will have with them while you are auditioning.

Instead of physical copies of your headshot and resume, these materials will be provided digitally via the cloud to producers to view as you are auditioning.  Your materials will be stored in the cloud so that producers will have continued access to them throughout their theatre seasons.  Please send digital copies of your headshot and resume to Andrew Protopapas at aprotopapas@catco.org.
