This class will culminate in performances of William Shakespeare’s AS YOU LIKE IT in the Hal Todd Theatre at the end of the semester. 

We are looking for actors, singers/musicians, stage managers, and designers willing to collaborate on this production.

The course will offer students the experience of what goes in to putting on a play, teach theater professionalism, and explore the rigorous and rewarding experience of acting Shakespeare.

ACTORS, PLEASE PREPARE:
 - a short Shakespeare or other classical monologue
 - a short contemporary monologue
 - OPTIONAL: be prepared to sing a few bars of something or play an instrument.
 
Interested in DESIGN or STAGE MANAGEMENT?

If so, be prepared to tell us a bit about yourself and your interests. We’ll have an information orientation at the top of our time and then you’ll all sign up to audition/interview one at a time through the rest of our session. Class/cast list will be posted as soon as possible and permission codes will be given out.
If call backs are needed they will be held on Wednesday Jan. 31, 5pm-8pm.
