Audition for The Library Project!

atonement

Looking for another “class” this semester? Want to spend some extra time in the Stacks? Ever wonder what happens in Olin after midnight?

Second Stage presents…

ENGL000:

Otherwise known as The Library Project: An interdisciplinary retelling of The Odyssey, coming alive in the Stacks.

The Library Project will be an immersive, experimental, and completely ensemble based work of art that is different for each audience member. Loosely based on Homer’s epic poem, the play will be about knowledge, love, and the indelible power of words and libraries.

We are looking for not only actors, but DANCERS, MUSICIANS, SINGERS, WRITERS and READERS to be a part of our creative team. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
