Open Auditions for Two Shows
 
Sinclair Theatre will hold open auditions for both Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice and a devised theatre piece, Building Bridges in Our Town on May 5th beginning at 6 p.m. in the Black Box Theatre located on the fourth floor of building 2 on Sinclair’s downtown campus. You must register online for an audition time slot at: www.sinclair.edu/theatreauditions. Signing up for one time slot registers you for both auditions.
 
Callbacks for Bridges will be May 6th and for Pride & Prejudice on May 7th.
 
Open auditions means you do not have to be a Sinclair student or theatre major to audition as long as you are prepared with the following requirements and are willing to commit to a rigorous rehearsal schedule if cast. 
 
To audition for Pride & Prejudice, memorize a 1-to 2-minute classic or contemporary comedic monologue. Performance dates are: Sept. 28 through Oct. 4, 20-14 in Blair Hall. Director is Kimberly Borst.
 
To audition for Building Bridges in Our Town, you must write your own 1-minute monologue that will answer one of these prompts:
 
“Describe a personal experience that is unique to Dayton.”
 
“My Dayton neighborhood is unique because…”
 
For the Bridges audition you may have your original, written monologue in hand, but it is expected that you will not be reading, but performing it. This devised project, inspired by Thornton Wilder’s Our Town will be written by the cast (beginning fall semester) and performed May 29-30, 2015 in Blair Hall. Director is Gary Minyard, education and engagement director for the Victoria Theatre Association.
