There is a lot for our majors and "friends of the theatre" to keep organized, and here we'll help you do just that. Whether you are a major wanting to know what's next, a non-major working on crew for one of our shows, or a student looking for your next opportunity, this is the material you will need to succeed.
Want to know what's coming up next in The Playhouse? Visit our Master Calendar.
The Diviners will begin rehearsal with a Full Company Meeting and Design Presentations on January 16 once the show has been cast. Check our Master Calendar for rehearsal dates.
Rehearsals for John Proctor is the Villain begin Tuesday evening, February 19 at 6:30 pm.
AUDITIONS & Backstage opportunities
Auditions for the two Spring 2019 shows, The Diviners and John Proctor is the Villain will take place on Monday, January 14 and Tuesday, January 15 at 3:00 and 7:00 in the Main Stage of The Playhouse.
Anyone interested in crew positions for these shows should come to auditions and fill out a form to be considered for technical work.
For those auditioning for The Diviners: There are wonderful parts for 5 women and 6 men, any race, ethnicity, or nationality. We will be reading various scenes from the script at auditions. The play takes place in Zion Indiana (pop. 40) and these people (with the exception of disenchanted preacher C.C. Showers) are all salf-of-the-earth honest people. I shall be looking for believable earnest readings (with the exception of Showers who has a bit of a snake oil salesman attitude). Questions? Email Rhett Bryson.
For those auditioning for John Proctor is the Villain:
Casting 6 women and 3 men, plus an ensemble of 4-6 persons, any race, ethnicity, or nationality. As this is a new unpublished script by Kimberly Belflower as part of the College Collaboration Project between Furman, Centre College (KY), Rollins College (FL), and The Farm Theater (NY), you may request a copy of the script by emailing the director. You may also wish to read The Crucible
by Arthur Miller to better understand many references in the script. Sides for auditions are posted here.
Be prepared to move at the audition as there is a brief dance sequence in the production. Questions? Email Maegan Azar
Every theatre arts major needs a handbook, but there is also information on crew positions for our productions in this guide. Find what you're looking for here
