UVA Acts - Opportunities

There are many ways to get involved with UVA Acts. You can audition to be in an ensemble, attend a public performance, or book a performance for your colleagues. 

You can also sign up for our newsletter to be kept up-to-date on our latest projects and opportunities to be a part of the development process. We pilot all of our programs with small audiences before they launch, and we'd love for you to be a part of giving us feedback. Signing up for the newsletter will guarantee that you'll hear about opportunities like pilot performances and open rehearsals in the future.

UVA Acts - Book a Performance

UVA Acts programming is designed to tour to departments, schools, and professional group. We want the conversations and ideas that are generated during our performances to continue long after we leave, and this happens easily when audience members are already connected and collaborating. Follow the steps below to start the process of bringing UVA Acts to your colleagues and peers. 

UVA Acts - Audition

Auditions to be a UVA Acts Ensemble member are open on a rolling basis throughout the year. Actors are invited for an audition soon after applying, but casting is currently project-specific (meaning it could be some time before a project becomes available).
