Taking Part in Theatrical Productions at UC

The Theatre Department produces one show a semester in Strebel Auditorium. We invite you to participate and share your talents. Here is how:

Backstage Talent

Anyone who can make the time commitment can work backstage. We welcome all techies!

To inquire about opportunities, please email Laura Salvaggio at

Onstage Talent

Auditions are open to everyone from either UC or the greater Utica community, though UC students are given some preference in casting decisions.

Performance Schedule

Our performances typically occur the week after Halloween and the last week of February, but dates are occasionally moved to avoid conflicts with other events. Fall auditions are within two weeks of the start of the semester. Spring auditions are the first or second week of December. Information is posted on the board outside Strebel Auditorium and posted here and on our Facebook page. The production process typically lasts six weeks from the start of rehearsal through the end of performances. Rehearsals are normally Monday through Friday 7-10:30. Technical Rehearsals usually start the Saturday before performances.
