Conflicts (such as evening classes) must be listed on audition forms and will be taken into account during casting. Depending on your role, the commitment could be 1-6 days per week, 1-4 hours per day/night during the week, 1-5 hours on weekends. Rehearsals will be evenings Monday through Friday 6-10 PM, and Saturday 12-5 pm. Sunday will be a day off. Obviously, you must not have any conflicts during the performance dates of the fall productions, and no conflicts during tech week preferred. All actors are required to participate in strike as scheduled. You will be required to register for a Theatre Arts and Performance Studies practicum credit if you are cast as well as those that are part of the tech crew or stage managers.
Theatre Productions for Fall 2016
THEATRE ARTS AND PERFORMANCE STUDIES PRESENTS
On the Verge or The Geography of Yearning
by Eric Overmyer
directed by Mitzi Smith
October 13-20, 2016 The Vassiliadis Family Black Box Theatre - C131
In On the Verge (or The Geography of Yearning), three Victorian lady travelers take upon themselves “the mystery of
things” as they set out for “Terra Incognita” and discover more than they anticipated. Join us for an expedition into Eric
Overmyer’s witty, wordy wonderland of places and times. It’s an exciting, theatrical adventure exploring language,
imagination and, most of all, the human desire to investigate.
The Secret in the Wings
by Mary Zimmerman
directed by Lisa Berger
November 17-20, 2016 The Studio Theatre
A stunning work full of exceptional beauty and inventive visuals adapted from several classic lesser-known fairy tales
reflecting the darker and more dangerous undercurrents of childhood.
