Instructions for your audition

Speaking roles: monologues and stories

The director has selected a collection of 1-minute monologues that he would like those auditioning to choose from. Please choose one monologue from the pre-selected collection in the Theatre Office. In addition to the monologue the director would also like you to tell a short story.

Auditions for speaking roles will take place on Friday, May 13 from 6 to 10 p.m.

Movement roles

This production will be movement heavy and includes non-speaking roles focused solely on movement.

The production will feature a giant piece of fabric. Some cast members will manipulate the fabric, and will be on stage for the length of the production. Some of the fabric-roles will be speaking roles, some will not.

There will also be a movement audition held in person on Saturday, May 14 from 9 to 11 a.m. on Mainstage (PA 282).

Please note that if you are interested in movement roles only, you do not have to sign up for a Friday audition slot.
