Audition Materials



12th Night, Directed by Gus Kaikkonen

Arena Theatre

First Rehearsal: September 16th, 2019

Opening: November 8th, 2019

*** I want to see you at your best.  If you have 2 one-minute monologues that contrast:  a classical and a modern, or a comedic and a dramatic, something to show your range, that would be great.  If you only have one that you enjoy doing that’s fine, too.  And sing 16 bars of a song a capella, unless you can accompany yourself.  Non-singers may sing “Happy Birthday”.

*** Because you are all unknown to me, I will need a picture and a resume.  As well as your acting experience, please indicate on your resume your training and experience in fencing, tumbling, and dance.  If you are a musician, please let me know your skill level and instrument.
