Casting Hall is governed by committees which include budget, publicity, and production, and an executive board that oversees the other committees in daily operations. The committees are made up of voting members. The executive board consists of a President, Vice President, Production Manager, Treasurer, Publicity, Secretary, and Audience Services.

As many as three shows are staged each semester. Theater Department faculty and students work together on all aspects of a show's production. Major productions are directed and designed by faculty while minor shows are put together by students. Proposals are voted on by the general membership. The members of Casting Hall decide which shows will be produced.

Voting Rights
