All skill levels are encouraged to audition. [Note: Audition dates have been changed from the original dates of January 24 and 25 due to the campus closure.]
About the Production
Join us for a play full of romance, comedy, and heart. Shakespeare’s As You like It has some of his most famous and profound characters. This will be an outdoor production at David Girard Vineyards, a beautiful outdoor amphitheater. There will be a live band and lots of merriment to be had in this fun production. This play will be adapted for a more contemporary feel; fear not the Shakespearian language. All are welcome. We embrace diverse and inclusive casting.
Open monologue auditions will be held on Monday, February 7, and Tuesday, February 8, 2022, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm each day. To schedule your audition appointment, please complete and submit this form.
