Auditions for the FALL 2014 production of The Adding Machine and Miss Julie
Sign up sheets are available outside the Center for Performing Arts Main Office (PA1030). Please sign up so we can get a count of how many to expect. All those auditioning are expected to stay for the entire audition period (6-10 p.m.)
THE ADDING MACHINE
Written by Elmer Rice and directed by Irene Alby, The Adding Machine follows the story of an ordinary accountant who murders his boss upon learning he will be replaced at work by an adding machine. After he is sentenced and executed for murder, he finds his afterlife to be a most unexpected experience. Funny, sad, poignant and startling, this expressionist, metaphorical play will be a visually rich contemplation on right and wrong, life and death.
UT Performance Dates: October 24-26, and October 31-November 2
Written by August Strindberg, a new translation from Daniel Thobias and directed by Cornel Gabara. A naturalistic play, it depicts both gender and class struggle in the person of Miss Julie, who longs to escape the stifling structure of her Victorian lifestyle and begins a dangerous flirtation with one of her father’s servants - one that could cost her more than her status.
UT Performance Dates: November 21-23, and December 5-7
