Cast

This year we will be staging one musical and one play: 9 to 5: The Musical and Pride & Prejudice, respectively. Applicants are allowed and encouraged to audition for both shows, but will be asked to preference which show they would rather be in. Applicants will only be called back and ultimately cast in one show.

OTL practices inclusive casting and welcomes all those who wish to audition to do so!

Auditions will be held October 14-17 from 7-10pm in the Nosker event spaces

For a closer look at what being part of play or musical cast is like, check out the vlogs below from the casts of Big Fish and Really Really!

SIGN UP TO AUDITION FOR PRIDE AND PREJUDICE HERE

DURING THE AUDITION: 

Please bring a 1 minute monologue, memorized. This monologue should present skill as well as what type of character you would like to be considered for. 

Then, you will select a character’s scene to do a cold read for at the audition.

CALLBACKS: 

October 22nd-23rd from 7:00pm-10:00pm.

Callbacks are primarily going to consist of cold reads. These nights are to ensure that the ensemble will play off each other, to see if you can take direction, and to see different interpretations of the same character.

WE WILL NOT BE DOING AN ACCENT

Please email Sammy Sheirich, sheirich.1@osu.edu, for any questions or accommodation requests for play auditions.

 

Director's note: Please make sure the monologue reflects the role you are auditioning for. To be considered for a comedic character, deliver a comedic monologue. If the character you're auditioning for is cold and aloof, choose a monologue that reflects that attitude. You will not be cast in a role that does not match your audition monologue.
