Auditions will be held Monday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 24 from 7:00-9:0 p.m.

Anyone interested in acting at either session should arrive at the Bartell Lobby between 7:00 - 9:00 p.m., where they will fill out forms listing their experience and special talents, and get their photograph taken. These forms and accompanying photos will be available for use by the writers and directors throughout the rest of the process, to make casting go more quickly.

You may NOT act on both nights. Be prepared to choose a night when you come to fill out a form. This is not a typical audition. If you fill out a form and everything seems correct and okay, you WILL act. Actors will be given all the important information during sign up but it is important to know that if you sign up you must be at the theater at 10:00 a.m. the day of the show and be there until load-out after the show. It is a full day committment.
