The University of Akron School of Dance, Theatre, and Arts Administration is looking for students and community members to audition for the Fall Theatre Mainstage production, Big Love, by Charles Mee, directed by James Slowiak. Big Love is a contemporary retelling of Aeschylus’ The Suppliants, long thought to be the oldest surviving play script. With a bold physical approach, characters breaking into pop songs, and provocative themes, the comic tale of 50 brides running away from their 50 grooms promises to be a rich and rollicking adventure for both actors and spectators.
Rehearsals will begin Sunday, September 9 and performance dates are October 25 to November 3, 2018. Expect to rehearse Sunday through Thursday evenings for 3 to 4 hours.
WHAT TO PREPARE:
Please prepare to perform 2-3 minutes of your best karaoke number (bring your own music) or, like on “America’s Got Talent,” recite a poem, sing a song, dance, perform magic, do a monologue or comedy routine – anything you do well! You may be asked to move and to work with other members of your audition group. Please also come prepared to write down all of your schedule conflicts.
