Headline: Auditions to be held for Studio 301’s ‘Julius Caesar’
Actors itching to show off their chops next quarter are invited to audition for student-run theater group Studio 301’s spring production, Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.
“I’m looking for committed and, most importantly, enthusiastic actors who are willing to take risks and have fun on the stage,” said director Michael Lutheran.
Auditions will be held tomorrow from 6 to 11 p.m. in 101 Wright Hal. Auditioners are asked to prepare a one- to two-minute dramatic Shakespeare monologue and bring a headshot, resume and their spring quarter schedule. If you do not have a monologue prepared, one will be provided for you. All who are interested are encouraged to try out.
