******** Please note the information below! ************

This audition will be for casting into the ensemble of the show. Because we are adapting Shakespeare’s original text, we will be creating additional roles from the original script and making some changes to the story. This ensemble will devise our concept for the production during AFTERNOON PAIDEIA starting in January, and will rehearse during F block in the spring semester. Please keep this in mind when signing up for auditions!
