The Performing Arts Department welcomes students from across the College into its performing ensembles, and provides multiple performance opportunities each academic year.


Dance Auditions are not required for the Performing Arts major or minor in Dance. Students may audition for performance ensembles, including the Saint Mary's College Dance Company, early in the new academic year.

The Saint Mary's College Dance Company will hold auditions for the 2016­17 school year on August 31 at 1 p.m. and September 1 at 1:15 p.m. in the Syufy Dance Studio. Dancers must attend both auditions and then, if selected, must enroll in Perfa 75­01 and Perfa 75­02. Questions? Contact Cathy Davalos, Director of Dance, at [email protected]



The Saint Mary’s Chamber Musicians, Wind Symphony, Orchestra, Jazz Band, and our award-winning choral groups, the Chamber Singers and Glee Club, are organized at the start of each semester. Questions? Contact Dr. Julie Ford at [email protected].



No audition is required to major or minor in Theatre at Saint Mary’s College. Auditions are required for most productions.

The Saint Mary’s Theatre Program announces auditions for our Spring 17 One-Act Festival, which will feature selections from Suzan-Lori Parks' 365 Days/365 Plays. By turns meditative and wickedly funny, Parks' work challenges us to think deeply about our shared American-ness. 

The Saint Mary’s Theatre Program practices culturally inclusive casting. We welcome first­-years, transfers and beginners. All roles are open.
