Theater Gallatin Opens Auditions for Mainstage Productions

On the horizon: stagings of Shakespeare's The Rape of Lucrece and Moliere’s Amphitryon

Aug 21, 2014

Roman Tragedies

Theater Gallatin, a faculty-led program providing year-round opportunities for students to work collaboratively with faculty, recent alumni, and professional guest artists, invites interested Gallatin undergraduates, graduate students, and recent alumni to audition for its fall and spring productions.

Based on Shakespeare’s long poem, the fall mainstage devised production of The Rape of Lucrece will cast three to seven women and men and will run in repertory with Julius Caesar as part of the November 2014 Roman Tragedies Festival. The production will be directed by Professor Kristin Horton and will have performances in the Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts from November 6 to 16, 2014.

The spring production of Moliere’s fantastical farce Amphitryon will be directed by Professor Matthew A.J. Gregory, with performances running from February 5 to 15, 2015 the Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts. Amphitryon is a tale of Roman gods in disguise who meddle in the affairs of mortals, and the production will feature a cast of ten to twelve physically expressive male and female actors. While not required, previous experience with performing Molière, verse, or physical comedy would be beneficial.

Those interested in auditioning should prepare and memorize a one to two minute classical verse monologue and should bring to the audition a resume and, if possible, a headshot. When auditioning, actors should indicate if they would like to be considered for one or both shows.

Auditions will be held in Room 430 at 1 Washington Place on Friday, September 5 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm and Saturday, September 6 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Using your NYU email, sign up to audition by scrolling to the audition dates.
