Fall Play 2017: Twelfth Night Information

On August 17th, there will be an information meeting on the upcoming fall production of Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare. The dates and audition information will be addressed in the meeting. If you are looking to pick up your own copy of the play, please pick up the Folger Shakespeare Library Publication. If not, pick up a No Fear Shakespeare. The version we will be using is the Folger version and that is it. If you need that No Fear, you can as a reference. What you will be auditioning is the following:

Guys: Duke Orsino's Monologue at the beginning of the play

Girls: Viola's Monologue at the end of act 2, scene 2

I will make copies of this monologue so you have a weekend to prepare yourself.

Drama takes us into the depths of our imaginations. Movement, voice and song transform a set made of wood, paint and cloth into an alternate reality to tell stories, awaken our sensibilities, and stir our emotions.

The art of theatrical performance is a craft that has many rewards. Drama students learn in an environment that is accepting and forgiving. Actors are able to release their inhibitions and express their inner self. The drama group encourages and nurtures abilities. The results are greater poise, confidence, self-assurance and an enhanced ability to communicate effectively.
