Interested in auditioning? Here is a preview and behind the scenes look of the Cypress College production of Rent.


Cypress College Theater has officially ended its 2013 Fall Season. The sets have been tore down and the student actors kicked onto the streets. Now it is time to find new stars. For those of you that saw Rent or Lost in Yonkers and wondered how you can be a part, here is the answer: Go Audition!

Auditions for the musical will be held December 10 and 11 at 7 p.m. in the Campus Theater.  Students interested in auditioning must bring 16 bars of a prepared song from a musical theater catalog. Come ready to dance as well. Men must wear jazz shoes and women must have character shoes. Contact director, Jim Hormel at with any questions.  If you want to avoid singing and dancing, auditions for the play, “Nickel and Dimed” will be held December 9 and 10 at 7 .pm. in the Studio Theater. Prepare a one-minute monologue for auditions.  Contact director Mark Marjarian regarding any questions.
