Theatre Productions Auditions

Welcome to California State University, Chico! We are happy to have you in our dynamic Department of Music, Theatre and Dance and wish you great success. 


We will be holding our initial auditions virtually for the fall (don’t worry we will be in person in the spring… just mixing it up).

If you’d like to be considered for the musical and the play:

  • please do a contemporary pop/rock song in the style of Head Over Heels
  • AND a comedic monologue. 

If you are only interested in the being considered for the play:

  • you need only do a comedic monologue. 
  • Please attempt your best standard British dialect in the monologue (this is not going to eliminate anyone from consideration… but just give the director a sense of what he’s working with). 
Please edit audition pieces into one video:
  • the audition should total no more than two minutes regardless of which option you select. 
  • Audition form with Youtube video link) must be received by 11:59pm August 19th. 
  • Note that this is the Saturday BEFORE school begins.

Equity & Inclusion

Chico State Theatre is committed to diversity, inclusivity, and anti-racism.  As such, we pledge to continue to reimagine new approaches to both contemporary and classical works, as well as increase the representation of BIPOC, LGBTQ, and women theatre practitioners, along with members of other marginalized and/or minoritized groups in our main stage season.  No less than 50% of our season will have relevant themes and/or creators from these communities.
