Spring Auditions

Theatrix will be holding its spring auditions on January 19th. During this audition both of the Theatrix Mainstage productions will be cast as well as the joint Theatrix/Masquers staged reading festival, Center Stage.

Audition Material and Information

Prepare two contemporary contrasting monologues that do not exceed three minutes if you are auditioning for the Theatrix Mainstage Productions. If you are only auditioning for Center Stage please prepare one contemporary monologue that does not exceed one minute. (Please look at the conflict section to see which Rep productions and which Theatrix productions overlap.)

Please bring a current headshot and resume as well as a list of conflicts. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your time slot. If you miss or are late to your time slot, speak to the stage manager on site.

Callbacks for Theatrix Mainstage will be posted online at here and will be held later the same day. There will be no callbacks for Center Stage.

The first show of the spring Mainstage season will be Speech & Debate written by Stephen Karam and directed by Ethan Greenlee. The second show of the Mainstage season will be This Is War written by Hannah Moscovitch and directed by Christa Retka.

Cast lists for both productions as well as Center Stage will be posted soon after auditions and callbacks.


The Theatrix Mainstage shows will run parallel to the Nebraska Repertory's season with substantial overlap of rehearsal schedules and performances. To make sure each production has the correct amount of commitment from its actors, there will be some restrictions on which productions student actors can participate in during the fall. Those actors cast in the Rep's production of Hair will NOT be able to be a part of Theatrix's spring Mainstage production line up due to show overlap. Those actors cast in the Rep's production of Dutchman WILL BE allowed to participate in Theatrix's This Is War but NOT Theatrix's Speech & Debate. As always, students are allowed to be in both Theatrix productions.

For Center Stage, those involved in The Rep's Dutchman and Theatrix's Speech & Debate WILL NOT be able to participate. Those involved in The Rep's Hair and Theatrix's This Is War will be able to participate in Center Stage.
