Audition and Tech Information

First, we are doing the JOSEPH ROBINETTE version of the play.  On YouTube, there are several others--but they are not availabe in the United States for licensing.  This video link provides a look at one production of the script we are doing, though the blocking and choreography will vary in ours.  It gives you an idea.

Here is a preliminary chart of characters and what scenes they are in.  Remember, most anyone not in a main role will be busy playing multiple parts.

Next, DOWNLOAD AUDITION INFO handout + AUDITION FORM IF AUDITIONING FOR ACTING ROLE.  DOWNLOAD Audition Info Handout AND TECH CREW APPLICATION IF INTERVIEWING FOR A TECHNICAL CREW ROLE.
