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.

AUDITIONS & Backstage opportunities
Auditions for the two Spring 2018 shows, Twisted Tales from Shakespeare and The Shadow Box will take place on Monday, January 8 and Tuesday, January 9 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 Twisted Tales
AUDITIONS: Actors should have read the script (available to you if you send Rhett Bryson
an email). Reading the script will give you an idea of the tone and style of the play. We will read selections of the Narrator and the Footnoter from the script. I will ask actors to improvise (hopefully in a comic vein) selected scenes from Hamlet
and A Midsummer Night's Dream
Casting Narrator and Footnoter - any gender, race, or ethnicity.
And casting 2 men and 2 women as actors from a local theatre group (who are absolutely coarse actors who think they are in the RSC!), any race or ethnicity.
FOR The Shadow Box AUDITIONS: Actors wishing to audition should be very familiar with the script. You will be asked to read sides from the text for auditions.
Casting 5 men and 4 women, any race or ethnicity.
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
