This week we will be holding auditions for our first show of the year, Mary Chase’s Harvey, directed by senior, Alexander Re. Harvey is a delightful comedy about a charming man named Elwood P. Dowd, and his best friend, Harvey, a six foot tall rabbit, that only Elwood can see. Elwood’s family tries to get him committed to a sanitarium, but a mix up occurs in a classic, but completely original, comedy of errors.
Auditions will be held in the clubroom, in the basement of the student center, this Tuesday and Wednesday.
On Tuesday, auditions will run from 5:30pm to 8:30pm and on Wednesday, from 2:00pm to 5:00pm.
Auditions will be a cold read. You will be given a few pages of the script, and after a few minutes to read them over, you and everyone in your scene will be called in to read for the director. You will also be required to fill out a quick form beforehand.
If you are interested in Production Staff, please stop by the clubroom during audition time to fill out a Prod Staff form.
We hope to see you there, break a leg!
Little Theatre is back for another year and has a lot in store for the 2013-2014 season!
To start things off, we did some housekeeping in the clubroom and the theatre to make finding things a whole lot easier. Let’s just say we filled a number of dumpsters along the way…
The start of the semester also brought in a number of new faces at our General Body Meeting on August 28th.
We are very excited to see what the new members have to offer and we can already tell that they will be an invaluable asset to the club!
LT invites everyone to come visit us during the week in the clubroom to say “Hi!”, hang out, or find out what we’re all about.
