A Dramatic Opportunity Audition Now

May 11, 2009

Next year's Mandell Professionals in Residence Project (MPiRP) will feature the Azuka Theater Company's production of Long Christmas Ride Home by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Paula Vogel, best known for her play How I Learned to Drive. Long Christmas Ride Home dramatizes an emotional road trip taken by parents and their three young children to visit grandparents. Auditions will be held on Thursday, May 14th from 6-10 PM in the Main Auditorium. No prior acting experience is necessary and all students are welcome to audition. Please contact Nick Anselmo at who will be delighted to answer your questions.

Scripts are available to be read in the Green Room or in the Performing Arts Office (2018 MacAlister Hall), and students should prepare one of the monologues for characters Stephen, Claire or Rebecca. As part of the audition, students will work with director Aaron Cromie on puppet making. Rehearsals for the show begin October 4th and performances will run from November 3rd - 15th. Anyone cast in the show will be required to take THTR 380 Advance Puppet class in the fall on Mondays from 12:00 - 2:50 pm.
