Samantha Pearlman ’11 thinks you should audition for Directed Experienced in Acting!
The Directing I class is looking for actors to perform in scenes written by such playwrights as Anton Chekhov, William Shakespeare, Tennessee Williams, George Bernard Shaw, and Carlo Goldoni. Actors participating in the scenes will receive .5 course credit for acting in the scene and going to rehearsals. No papers, No tests, No reading- JUST ACTING!
These scenes are a great way to discover acting if you’ve never tried it before, or to help further your technique if you wish to study it in the future. No acting experience is necessary, only a strong work ethic and an interest in the rehearsal process. Rehearsals will be roughly 6 hours a week depending on the schedules of the performers and the directors.
Auditions will be held THIS FRIDAY, January 30 from 1:10-3:30 in the Theater Studios in the CFA. Please prepare a 1-2 minute monologue written before the 1970s (memorized). Sign up for a time slot on the Theater Department call board (located in the Theater Studios). Hope to see you there!
If that’s not quite for you…
