The Melodramatics Theatre Company is entirely student-run! We thrive off of our dedicated peers who have a passion for theatre and we are always looking for more people to join our organization! 

How we work:

  1. The core production team picks a show, purchases the rights and reaches out to individuals or sends out a call to form a creative team (i.e. director, music director, costume designer, set designer, etc.)
    A group of students form a small creative team and propose a show to the production team, who will then approve it and help find remaining creative team members.

  2. Once the show rights have been purchased and approved, information for actor and pit musician auditions are posted, with roughly 2.5 weeks to submit auditions.

  3. Mid-semester, the production team will send out a crew call for any necessary crew members. Crew members are also welcome to email the creative team if they are interested in joining the production.

Please check our current production page for audition information and make sure to sign up for our list-serv. Thank you!
