Casting is a difficult process both for those auditioning and for the director. Talent is not the only consideration. Cooperation, dependability, creativity, intellectual understanding, physical suitability, psychological suitability, emotional maturity, and many other characteristics are involved. Those actors who are not cast are urged to get involved working backstage and to audition again. A student is more likely to be cast in future productions if (s)he becomes known as a dependable and responsible worker. Our casting process is color, race, religion and gender blind. Casting in all Theatre UAF productions shall be open; i.e., no parts may be cast prior to Open Auditions. Non-majors, faculty, staff and members of the community are welcome to auditions for all productions. In the event of two actors of equal ability, however, priority on casting will be given to theatre majors.
