Welcome to Penn State Behrend's small but lively theatre program! We are looking for curious, creative, resourceful, hard-working, and energetic students who are interested in acting, stage construction and/or stage management. No experience necessary.
In addition to taking interesting, fun, and informative courses in acting, production, and theatre history/dramatic literature, you have the opportunity to participate in our fall and spring productions. Here you will learn about a play and playwright in-depth, meet new friends and colleagues, enhance your technical and/or performance skills, and gain invaluable experience in communication and creative collaboration that will aid you in future classes on-campus as well as everyday life off-campus.
Upcoming Auditions: "Anatomy of Gray"
Auditions for the Spring 2013 Theatre production, “Anatomy of Gray” by Jim Leonard will be held in the Studio Theatre on Wednesday, Jan 9 from 6:30 - 10p.m. and Thursday, Jan 10 from 6:30 - 10 p.m. If necessary, additional callbacks may be scheduled.
ALL Behrend students, faculty, and staff are welcome to audition! We will be reading selected scenes from the script that will be provided for you.
If you sing, please a short excerpt (a capella) from “Amazing Grace” or another spiritual hymn of your choosing. We are looking to cast anywhere from 9-12 actors total. The play is not a musical, but there are some singing roles.
The auditions will be scheduled in ten-minute slots. However, I may ask you to stay afterwards so I can pair you up with different people and see how you read together.
If you would like to request an audition time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability (i.e. Wednesday after 7:30pm, Thursday before 8) and we will get back to you with a time-slot.
Spring Production Dates & Times - TBA
Rehearsals will take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-9pm. They begin on January 15 and continue until April. You must be available during all scheduled rehearsal times and performance dates in order to be considered.
Email David Vegh at email@example.com if you have any questions. Walk-ins are welcome.
