Winter Study Auditions

January 5-7, 2017

Tobi’s Journal
This play, written by Terah Ehigiator ’18, follows the relationship of two young black brothers–one dead, the other living–through the pages of a journal left behind. From the playwright: “It deals with the narratives such as the fleeting high school crush, burgeoning sexuality, Blackness, and boyhood, many of which topics that I have not explored in the theatre produced at Williams in my last two years here.”
The cast calls for one black actor. Please come with a monologue of your choice.

Sappho’s Poetry
The piece, directed by Claire Bergey ’17, will be an installation/performance piece using fragments of Sappho’s poetry as translated by Anne Carson and original music devised by Scott Daniel ’17. It will be a collaborative effort by the entire design and performance team. It will have to do with Sappho, authorship, voices, perception, love, memory, deception, repetition, and craft.
Please prepare two fragments of Sappho’s poetry of your choice for your audition, which will last approximately 15 minutes. No prior acting experience is required. Music making may be involved.
