OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY

Auditions Scheduled for ‘Twelfth Night’

04/13/2009

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Auditions are set for Sunday, May 10, at 2 p.m. for the Oregon State University Theatre’s production of Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” which will be performed on campus this summer.

Auditions will be held at the Withycombe Hall Main Stage Theater on the OSU campus. Callbacks will be held in the quad of the Memorial Union at 5:30 p.m. Monday, May 11.

All OSU students and members of the community are welcome to audition.

The show is part of the annual Bard in the Quad series, which features an outdoor summer production of a Shakespeare play.

Those auditioning should prepare a one-minute Shakespeare piece. The piece can come from any Shakespeare comedy (except “Twelfth Night”), drama, or sonnet. Actors wishing to be considered for the role of Feste should prepare an additional one minute song. On the first evening of auditions, actors are encouraged to be prepared to show off any additional skills, such as juggling, playing a musical instrument, dancing or gymnastics. The first evening will also consist of cold readings, games and physicality exercises.

“Twelfth Night” will run Aug. 5-9 and Aug. 12-16 (with a pick-up rehearsal/photo call Aug. 11).
