WHAT TO DO:
Prepare one short Shakespearean soliloquy: 15-20 memorized lines of text from any Shakespeare play where the character is talking to the audience, no longer than 2 minutes. You will then be paired up and asked to read scenes. Audition scenes will be posted here for your reference up to 2 weeks before auditions. Auditioners are required to bring proof of their COVID vaccination to their audition.

WHAT TO DO:
We will email you to schedule a Zoom interview. We will schedule interviews for Directing Assistants and Assistant Stage Managers first, followed by Design Assistants and Run Crew sometime later in October 2022.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
We will need one high school student to assist our director and assistant director throughout the rehearsal process and performances. Students who have an interest in directing and who want to learn more about it should apply. Make note of any rehearsal / performance conflicts you already know of and be ready to disclose them in your interview.
ASSISTANT STAGE MANAGER(S)
We are looking for one or two assistant stage manager(s). Enhance your skills as an organized and professional stage manager as you work with the director and cast throughout the rehearsal process to bring the show to life. Make note of any rehearsal conflicts you already know of and be ready to disclose them in your interview.
Costume Assistant, Lighting Assistant, Sound Assistant, and Run Crew
We will need responsible, organized people to work backstage as assistants to the Designers (Costumes, Lighting, and Sound). If you are interested in any areas of theater design or technical theater, you could have the opportunity to assist a professional designer in translating the director’s vision to the stage, and running the show during performances. The time commitment for these positions starts when technical rehearsals begin in late November 2022 and continues throughout the run. Design Assistants and Run Crew must be available for all technical rehearsals and performances.
