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 play selection for the Fall 2016 semester is Love/Sick by John Carianni.
From Dramatists Play Service: "A darker cousin to Almost, Maine, John Cariani’s LOVE/SICK is a collection of nine slightly twisted and completely hilarious short plays. Set on a Friday night in an alternate suburban reality, this 80-minute romp explores the pain and the joy that comes with being in love. Full of imperfect lovers and dreamers, LOVE/SICK is an unromantic comedy for the romantic in everyone."
Auditions for Love/Sick will be Tuesday, September 6, at 4:30 p.m. and Wednesday, September 7, at 6:00 p.m. in the Studio Theatre. Scenes will be provided. If you cannot attend one of these times, or have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
