Much Ado About Nothing
Auditions: Monday, February 29, 2016 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm McKee Gymnasium
Callbacks: Tuesday, March 1 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm McKee Gymnasium
Much Ado About Nothing requires actors, singers and dancers. Our production will evoke the 1950s. In addition to the traditional roles, we will be casting a Doo Wop chorus of rock ‘n’ roll singers/dancers. Prepare a one-minute comic monologue and 16 bars, a capella, of a rock ‘n’ roll song from the era. If you play a guitar, please bring it and give us a sample. Come prepared to move/dance (dress appropriately in loose, comfortable clothing). Our performance scripts will be available for checkout from the MU Dept. of Theatre office, 129 Fine Arts, after Feb 1. Rehearsals begin March 3.
