Open auditions are held each semester for the main stage productions. You do not have to be a theatre major or minor to participate, just a student at SUNY Plattsburgh.

Volunteers are always needed to aid in the construction of the show. Whether it be building the set, running lights, make-up or costume construction, you can participate in many ways. Contact Ben Wright or Marie Barber for more information.

Prospective Students: You do no have to audition to be a major or minor in the theatre program. Just apply to SUNY Plattsburgh and once you are accepted to the college you can declare the theatre major/minor. Contact Kim Hartshorn (518 564-2478) for any questions or to make an appointment to tour the department.
