AUDITIONS FOR Burial at Thebes
Directed by Paul Castagno

Monday, November 16th, 6-9 pm in the SRO Theatre (CAB 1064)
Callbacks are Tuesday, November 17th, 4:30-6:30 pm in the SRO

How to Prepare:

  1. Sign up for an audition time on the sign-up sheet on the call-board downstairs outside of CAB 1099.
  2. Prepare 10 lines of a monologue.
  3. Read the Seamus Heaney version BURIAL AT THEBES and get a sense of the language and interplay. Copies available in office for 2 hour check out. Please come to the audition prepared and familiar with the script.
  4. Be warmed up and relaxed, I need strong clear voices.
  5. Bring an energy or sense of the character.
  6. Be prepared to “take direction,” in other words, stay in the moment during the audition and offer a different approach when asked.
  7. Go through some of the BACKSTAGE website short videos on auditioning like how to relax--taking deep breaths, ways to deal with nerves, and what directors, casting directors are looking for from the actor, how to stay focused.

    For example: During audition don’t “bury your head” in the script, I’m looking for a sense of what you would bring to the character.

I am most pleased to announce that Tracy Kirkland will be our SM. Laura Baucom will be the Production SM. Here, is Tracy’s contact information should you need further information. Kirkland, Tracy E

I look forward to your audition.
