REMINDER - Quad Play Auditions

E-mail sent by Trini Kaushal, Wednesday, 5th May 2010 @ 12:11am

Hi a quick reminder that tomorrow is your last chance to audition for the quad play!

Wednesday 5th May 5pm-9pm CSC room 204

Facebook Group

Oscar Wilde's 'The Importance of Being Earnest'

" A trivial comedy for Serious People "

Auditions will be held for the Drama Society production of this
classic comedy which will take place in the UCL Quad June
10th-12th 2010. We are looking for a talented cast of 9 people to
bring this classic play to life in the picturesque surroundings
of the portico and main quad. The production is a fast paced and
hilarious comedy of errors which is perfect for a summer's
evening. We need a cast of 5 men and 4 women of all shapes, sizes
and types who are committed and serious about working together to
achieve a fantastic production.

Rehearsals will be over an intense 10 day period after the UCL
exam period (After May 28th). Performances will be the last week
of term, meaning that the cast will have to be committed and
dedicated for a short period of time.

Please turn up anytime in this slot to audition. Please note, if you arrive too late on and there is a que you may be asked to come back the next day. When you arrive there will be scripts to read outside the room. Please choose which you would like to read and you will have sometime to look over it before auditioning.
