UIS Theatre to hold open auditions for spring production

UIS Theatre will be holding open auditions for the spring 2010 production of The Runner Stumbles by Milan Stitt, directed by Missy Thibodeaux-Thompson. All theatre artists are invited to audition for roles or apply for work offstage.

The auditions will be held Sunday, January 31 and Monday, February 1 from 7 to 10 p.m. in the Studio Theatre, located on the lower level of the Public Affairs Center (PAC). Callbacks will be held Tuesday, February 2. Performance dates for the production will be April 23, 24 and 25, and April 29, 30 and May 1.

During auditions, actors are asked to fill out the audition form upon arrival. Auditions will consist of "cold readings" from the script. Prepared monologues and resumes are appreciated but are not required. Roles are available for four women and five men.

Scripts are available for reserve check-out in Brookens Library, and also for check-out with a $10 refundable deposit in the Communications Department office, located in University Hall 3010.

Those interested in working backstage (stage managers, props crew, sound research, costumes, dresser and running crew) are asked to attend one night of auditions to fill out an audition form and indicate an area of interest. Thibodeaux-Thompson will take a few moments to meet with those interested to discuss the area of interest.

For more information, contact Thibodeaux-Thompson at or 217/206-8307.
