    How to audition for Stage Center Theatre

    • Prepare a 60-90 second contemporary monologue from a play written in 2000 to present. Come share your work with us!
    • If you don't have a monologue, never fear! We will provide you with sides (short cuts of scenes from the play or from multiple plays) for you to prepare in depth in advance. Please let us know that this is your preference at neiuauditions@gmail.com and we will provide you with a scene!
    • Just heard about us and don’t have materials yet? No problem and no worries. You can still come out even if you don't have either prepared and we can provide you with sides when you arrive at the audition. You will then get time in the waiting area to prep.
    • We welcome all experience levels at Stage Center Theatre! If you'd like assistance in preparing for your audition, please feel free to contact Assistant Professor Adam Goldstein at agoldstein@neiu.edu to work on your material, or to discuss possible audition material options.
