Noon–5 p.m., January 8, King Theatre, Stuart Hall School
These auditions will be used to cast both thesis presentations (to be performed February 5 and 6 at the Blackfriars Playhouse) and MFA directing projects. Please note that each presenter’s name (or play title, in case of full productions) is linked to the audition side required.
2012 THESIS PROJECT FESTIVAL PRESENTERS
Jarom Brown: Casting for his thesis presentation scene(s) will be based on auditionees’ short prepared pieces, and on watching them work with other sides, during each audition hour.
James “Bobby” Byers
Elizabeth Lodato: Elizabeth Rentfro will not be providing any specific sides as preparation for casting actors for her thesis presentation. She plans to cast from watching students audition using the pieces they have learned, and sides for other projects.
Rachel Gabel Ratkowski: For auditions, actors should be able to both sing and dance therefore, the director would like to hear a few verses of song from actors.
