Casting Policy

Auditions are open to the public. Every effort is made to cast the best and/or most appropriate actor for each role for each show. However, since we are first a foremost an institution of higher learning, it is often necessary to consider the needs of our students in order to further educational goals. Those who are cast, regardless of whether they are a member of the IU Southeast student body or a member of the general public, are expected to attend all rehearsals and perform all performances.
