Auditions at UT, Austin for Cohen New Works Festival and UT New Theatre, January 14 - 15, 2013

General Auditions for Cohen New Works Festival University of Texas AustinUniversity of Texas New Theatre (UTNT) and The Cohen New Works Festival presented by the University Co-op are to take place on the evening of Monday, January 14, 2013 (the first day of classes) in Winship 1.148 at the University of Texas. Please come prepared with a one-minute contemporary monologue.

Callbacks for individual shows are scheduled for Tuesday, January 15, 2013. Rooms and locations for callbacks are TBA and are based on individual needs of each show and sides will be provided for each callback.

UTNT and New Works Festival rehearsal and performance schedules do not conflict so actors are able to audition and participate in both, if willing and able.

Available roles, character breakdowns and show synopses for UTNT shows will be released at a later date. Uncast shows affiliated with the New Works Festival will be present at the general auditions and specific character breakdowns and needs will be available prior to callbacks.

Reminder: New Works Festival auditions are open to the general public as well. They do not need to be UT students, or students at all. This applies ONLY for shows affiliated with the Cohen New Works Festival presented by the University Co-op.

UT New Theatre (UTNT) is an annual event held each Spring curated by Steven Dietz, featuring works by third-year M.F.A Candidates in Playwrighting. Shows affiliated with UTNT will be performed at the Lab Theatre

The New Works Festival is a week-long showcase of new work created by UT students held every other Spring in various locations in and around the Winship Drama Building and the University of Texas campus.

Both UTNT and The Festival are not just events, but rather celebrations of a continuously ongoing process–the creation of new work!
