Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Should I prepare a monologue?
A: It depends on the show. We often provide a selection of monologs or scenes from which you can choose to prepare an audition; however, we also utilize cold reads. A cold reading means the director will give you a scene to read from the show script at the time of the audition.

Q: Do I need a headshot and resume?
A: No. If you have one, feel welcome to bring it (especially the resume; it’ll be easier than writing your experience on the form). But we’ll take your picture at the audition and have a form for you to fill out.

Q: Do you precast shows?
A:
No, and we love seeing both new and familiar faces!

Q: I have another question.
A: Please email us at theatreoxford@gmail.com. We’re happy to help.
