Fall 2015 Auditions!

Oh yeah, time to

…for Shakespeare's classic tale of love, exile, and disguise, As You Like It ☆,
and for the soon-to-be classic Shakespearean adaptation by Ian Doescher, ☆ William Shakespeare's Star Wars ☆

Auditions will be held in 
Rhoads Quiet Study (in the basement)
Thursday, September 10th, 6pm - 9pm
Friday, September 11th, 6pm - 9pm
Callbacks Saturday, September 12th

You can sign-up for a 10-minute slot during the first two hours of each audition day, and the last hour will be reserved for walk-ins. (that is, you don't have to sign up for 8-9 pm on the 10th or 11th).   If you're auditioning with a partner (which is neither necessary nor required), you can select one audition slot for both of you (or just come to walk-ins together).   The link to slot sign-up is here, and will go live at 8 p.m. this Saturday, September 5th.

Audition materials are in the link in the right side entitled "Audition Materials", or hereYou will be asked to perform one monologue and one dialogue. You can bring a partner to read the dialogue with you, or someone in the auditioning room will read with you.  It's highly recommended that the monologue be from one play and the dialogue from the other.

For those of you who are new to the SPT audition process or need a little refresher here are some things to keep in mind:

Prepare! Read the script and practice your monologue/dialogue before auditioning.  That being said, you do not need to have either memorised.
Come to auditions whenever is best for you, but keep in mind that there might be a wait, especially during walk-ins. Bring work to do or practice your audition materials while you wait. Talk to the people waiting with you and make some new friends!
• If you signed up for a slot, please be prepared to come a little early and stay a little late as people before you might not be done exactly at your slot time.
Unlike some other audition processes, for our purposes being called back does not mean that you have been cast. Likewise, not being called back doesn’t mean that you have not been cast.
Fill out your audition sheet (available upon arrival to auditions) with complete honesty to ensure that you are happy and comfortable with any role you are offered.

Questions? Can't make any of the times listed? Signup slots already full? Email, the director of Shakespeare Star Wars, or, the director of As You Like It.
Do you want to do Technical Theater for us? Email the directors above with the subject "Teching for SPT". We would love to have you.

We can't wait to see you at auditions!
