Theatre arts program holding auditions Sunday
Salve Regina’s theatre arts program will hold auditions for “Doubt” and “Our Town” at noon Sunday, Sept. 13 in the Megley Theatre (Antone Academic Center, Room 127).
Rehearsals for both shows will be held from 6-10 p.m. Monday through Friday and from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.
In John Patrick Shanley’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Doubt,” a rigid nun questions a priest’s relationship with the only African-American student at their Catholic school. The cast includes one man and three women. Rehearsals will begin Sept. 16 for performances Oct. 22-25.
Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town,” also a Pulitzer Prize winner, tells the story of fictional American small town Grover’s Corners through the everyday lives of its citizens. The cast includes seven men and seven women. Rehearsals will begin Nov. 16 for performances Feb. 11-14, 2016.
The directors of both productions are seeking non-traditional casts, and people of color are encouraged to audition. Casting is open to all members of the Salve Regina community as well as the general public.
