Audition Notes from Director, Rebecca Lingafelter, Assistant Professor of Theatre:
Please read the play (it is on reserve at the library under TH 351). Prepare one of the three sides (copies available on lobby bulletin board of Fir Acres Theatre). You do not have to be memorized, but I would like to see you make some choices regarding the text and your relationship to it.
Since the script is open and has no delineated characters and no specific given circumstances beyond what we can infer, I would like you to make some very specific choices about:
- who you are
- to whom you are speaking
- why you are speaking the text.
Allow these choices to affect your body, voice and point of view. Also allow the architecture of the text (literally how it is presented on the page), to inform your choices. I encourage you to make bold, courageous and specific choices.
Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions (email@example.com) and I look forward to seeing you in January!
