AUDITION NOTICE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE AN NC STATE STUDENT TO AUDITION FOR THE SHOWS OF THEATREFEST. ALL ARE WELCOME!
TheatreFest, last held in 2006, is returning from a hiatus during the renovations of the popular Thompson Hall, formerly Thompson Theatre, on the campus of NC State. The repertory runs the three shows in rotation during the end of May and the month of June. Typically, actors audition for more than one show at the same time.
This year’s shows center around the mysteries of the beloved author Agatha Christie. The first show is A Murder is Announced and will be directed by guest director Rachel Klem of Common Ground Theatre. The second show is Murder on the Nile and will be directed by John McIlwee, director of University Theatre. The third show is Spider’s Web, directed by Allison Bergman, assistant director of University Theatre.
Auditions for TheatreFest are by appointment. Please prepare two one-minute contrasting monologues (a comedy and a drama, please no classic). Call Ellie Cooke at 919.513.3566 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org to make the audition appointment. Bring three copies of your resume and photo if available.
Limited perusal script copies may be available for reading in the theatres between 9am and 4 pm. Contact Ellie Cooke at Thompson Hall for more information 919.513.3566 or email@example.com or Nancy Breeding at Stewart Theatre offices 919.515.3105 firstname.lastname@example.org
