Utah Tech University




Utah Tech University’s new professional summer theatre will be holding auditions for its inaugural production of Macbeth No. 9, a new, devised take on Shakespeare’s play. Roles will be available for 9 actors who are comfortable with an experimental lab approach to theatre. The production will feature adult content, including violence and sexuality, but no nudity. Actors will be asked to engage in a very physical process, employing such disciplines as Suzuki, Grotowski, clowning, improvisation, and beyond. Actors of all abilities and ethnicities are encouraged to audition. All roles will be available to all genders.

To schedule a 10-minute audition slot, click on the link below. Please prepare one verse monologue (1-2 minutes in length) from one of Shakespeare’s plays. If you have other skills (e.g. playing an instrument, tumbling skills, juggling, other circus skills), please bring the necessary instruments or items you would need to demonstrate them. If you sing, you may be asked to sing something a capella. Please come to the audition prepared to move.

Auditions will be held in the Eccles Building on the campus of Utah Tech on Monday, January 30 from 6 to 10 PM and Saturday, February 4 from 1 PM to 5 PM. If you are unable to attend either auditions, please send a recorded audition to brandon.bruce@utahtech.edu. Callbacks will be held Saturday, February 11 from 1 PM to 5 PM.

Rehearsals will begin May 22. There will be a one weeklong hiatus between June 3 and 10, after which rehearsals will resume. The production will likely run from June 29 to July 15.

Community Audition Policy

UT Theatre encourages community involvement and welcomes the public to audition, unless otherwise advertised. In the case that community members do audition, it is the obligation of the Department and Institution to provide the foremost opportunities (i.e. major roles, production assignments) to students who are registered and enrolled as a student at the time of casting. Roles for individuals who are not registered and enrolled students are not guaranteed and will most likely be secondary characters or chorus cast member roles. Those who enroll, audition, are cast and then withdraw from school at any time during the semesters of production, may be replaced.

We appreciate the ongoing support and the enthusiasm of our community members. We hope to see you again soon!
