Upcoming Film Auditions!
Theatre students will be put on tape and may be directed by fellow students while at the audition. Irene Alby is preparing the audition material (sides), and will be posting a sign up sheet on the callboard by the design lab in the Center for Performing Arts. The audition will be run by theatre students in the Professional Aspects class. Our plan is to make this a yearly event, similarly to the theatre auditions, and also create an archive film students can use when looking for actors!

  • Auditions will be Tuesday, February 23, 6-9pm in the Lab Theatre (CPA 1039)
  • Bring a headshot and resume
  • Contact Irene Alby for a slot and information about the sides

Professor Emeritus, Bernie Coyne Exits the Stage
The Department of Theatre and Film has lost a dear friend. Bernard Coyne joined The University of Toledo in 1964 and was instrumental in establishing our Department of Theatre, serving as the department’s first chair until 1974, laying the foundations for its development over the next twenty years. He was also chiefly responsible for the formation of the Center for Performing Arts, completed in 1976.
You can access an article on Bernie here.
