What to prepare:

For Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

This play works in different ways with language and word play. At times the language is heightened (poetic) and at times, simple and direct. Please prepare (memorized) a 60-second monologue from a contemporary OR classical play that will give you an opportunity to work with language in one of the ways indicated above.

**Please note: we are actively seeking musicians to perform live in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, and instrumentalists will be asked to play as part of the callbacks. If it is possible, please have your instrument(s) available for callbacks on 8/29.

For Perception/Reality: Dance Concert

Please come warmed up and prepared to move. Be sure to wear form fitting, comfortable clothes for the general dance/aerial audition. Bring tap shoes if interested in auditioning for tap, and pointe shoes if you are interested in doing a pointe piece. Dancers will audition in groups of 10 beginning at 11:00 a.m.
