Jesters, Auditions, APO
The students of Theatre USA enjoy a variety of activities designed to stimulate their needs both professionally and academically.
USA Jesters is our unofficial drama club. All jesters members are considered for promotion into the Alpha Psi Omega honor society. USA Jesters hosts many events both on and off campus, providing different opportunities for students to express their artistic side. Such events include: murder mystery dinners, showcase plays like “Christmas Carol” or original scripts for Bayfest. Jesters also organizes field trips, for drama students, to see professional plays performed at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival.
Theatre USA performs four main stage productions per year.
Auditions for main stage shows are generally held in the first week of the new term. All University of South Alabama students may audition for shows. Anyone off campus may come to the auditions but will be considered last for any available roles. Audition times and requirements will be posted on the call board in the main hall.
Additionally, Theatre USA students who have taken the Directing I or II classes may apply to APO for the chance to direct their own plays in the black box acting studio. Student directors must choose their own designers, and hold casting auditions for their shows. Any black box performances must work rehearsal and show times around ongoing classes.
