Spring 2015 Auditions!

Oh yeah, time to

…for Shakespeare's classic tale of love, plots, and games of wit, Much Ado About Nothing ☆, and for the equally classic tragedy of ghosts, feigned madness, and revenge, Hamlet

Auditions will be held in 
Rhoads Quiet Study (in the basement)
Thursday, January 28th, 6pm - 9pm
Friday, January 29th, 6pm - 10pm
Callbacks Saturday, January 30th

You can sign-up for a 10-minute slot during the first two hours (6-8) of each audition day, with the last hour/two hours (respectively) reserved for walk-ins. (that is, you don't have to sign up for 8-9 pm on the 28th or 8-10 pm on the 29th).   If you're auditioning with a partner (which is neither necessary nor required), you should select two back-to-back audition slots (or just come to walk-ins together).   The link to slot sign-up is here, and will go live at noon this Saturday, January 23rd.

Plus, you can join the Facebook event here.

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.
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 Hamlet, or, the director of Much Ado About Nothing.
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!

William Shakespeare's Star Wars video!!!

The video of the Saturday performance of William Shakespeare's Star Wars has now been posted on YouTube!  If you or your friends & family weren't able to make the show in person, or you just want to relive the experience, the video can be found at this link or embedded below.  As it was recorded live the sound quality is not the best, but captions will be added gradually over the next few weeks.


Stay tuned for info about our spring semester shows, including AUDITIONS!!!
