Western Commercial Auditions

How to participate

To participate in the Western commercial audition, you must submit a self-audition video. Please note that you do not actually need to be a student from one of these disciplines to audition for some of these roles (i.e. you are welcome to audition for a role as an engineering student even if you are not a part of the engineering program). However, only swimmers and football players will be permitted to audition for the swimming and football roles.
