Welcome to Theatre@Behrend. We are looking for creative, dedicated and hard-working students who are interested in performance or behind the scenes work in a small theatre program. No experience is necessary.
In addition to taking introductory courses in theatre, acting and set construction, you have the opportunity to participate in our fall and spring productions for course credit. Whether you have a passion for performing, are looking for an opportunity to meet new friends, or gain valuable lifelong skills in communication and collaboration, Theatre@Behrend has something for you. If you are interested in performing, see audition information below. If you are interested in backstage work or designing (lighting, costumes, set design and construction, sound, etc.), please email the director, Emily Cassano.
The official musical selection for the Spring 2017 semester is Dogfight by Pasek and Paul.
From Music Theatre International: It's November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final boys' night of debauchery, partying, and maybe a little trouble. But, when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress whom he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of love and compassion.
Auditions for Dogfight will be January 17 at 4:30 p.m. and January 18 at 6:00 p.m. in the Studio Theatre. Please prepare a song with sheet music or karaoke accompaniment. Scenes will be provided for reading. Show dates are March 30 to April 1 and April 6-8.
