Dec 3

Caesar Auditions will be in the black box studio theatre on Dec 16th from 3.30-6.

Call backs will be on Dec 17th from 3.30 until finished.

Here is the AUDITION PACKET:

Caesar Audition Packet

Please note:

1. Fill out the audition form and conflict calendar BEFORE auditions on Dec 16th

2. Choose one side (mostly monologues). You do not have to have it memorized, but be familiar with it.

3. During auditions on the 16th, a member of stage management will be a reader for scenes with more than one person. If you choose to perform a monologue, please know that I may cut you off before you are finished only for the sake of time.

SOME TIPS:

1. Read the play if you can. If not, at least read the scene in which your audition side comes from.

2. Research unfamiliar words. Shakespearean speeches are challenging as it is, but one thing which will help is knowing what you are saying or referring to.

3. Try not to “heighten” the language through attempted dialect or over-dramatized phrasing. Yes, within verse, there is a meter and a rhythm, but that does not mean the text cannot sound natural.

4. Take reasonable risks! Make choices which will help you stand out.

Feel free to ask me questions!

BREAK LEGS!!!!
