Auditions for Alone | Together

All interested students must sign up to audition by Thursday September 23 at midnight. 

Auditions are open to all Brandeis students, regardless of racial, cultural, and individual identities. We value diversity in casting. No experience required.

Per university regulations, all auditions and performance opportunities are only open to vaccinated students at this time. In order to audition you must be recognized by the University as vaccinated and our audition cast list will be vetted for confirmation. 

We stand in solidarity with the struggle for racial justice. Our season reflects our goals to challenge discrimination and raise up marginalized voices. We intend to offer shows that challenge, uplift, and move our students and audiences. Please click here to view our solidarity statement. This production seeks a truly diverse and inclusive ensemble of performers who will each play a wide range of different roles and will be cast in a way that celebrates individual identity and is intentional and respectful regarding race, ethnicity, and gender identity.

SUGGESTED MONOLOGUES

ALONE | TOGETHER
The world premiere of five short play commissions by Fabiola R. Decius, Molly Haas-Hooven, Nick Malakhow, Masha Obolensky and A. Rey Pamatmat. As we emerge from a year of social separation, hardship, and unrest ALONE | TOGETHER explores themes of how we find ways to come together again. Each piece will be staged in a unique space around Spingold. The audience will form an intimate group that will experience the theatrical journey together. Tickets are complimentary for all Brandeis Students, but still must be ordered.

REHEARSAL PROCESS
Rehearsals will be held for each play between October 4-November 8. You will NOT be requested to rehearse the entirety of the period between October 4-November 8, but rather ten to twelve days during that time frame. Schedules will be drafted based upon the availability of the stage manager, director and the actors. In addition, technical rehearsals/dress rehearsals will run from Wednesday, November 10 to Wednesday, November 17. The schedule will be determined by individual pieces, of which there are five total, and most actors will not be required to attend every technical rehearsal. All actors will be required to attend dress rehearsals. Performances are November 18-November 21.
