The Rude Mechanicals are hosting an informational meeting for anyone interested in auditioning for the 2018-2019 acting company, the high school acting apprentice program, and the directing apprentice programs. We'll meet at The Uptown Theatre on April 26th at 6:30 pm. Artistic Director Ellicia Elliott will explain what changes are being made for the new season, how best to prepare to audition for the company, and to answer any questions you may have.

(Company auditions are scheduled for May 5th at FUSE.)

After the meeting, you are invited to stay to watch a powerful documentary, "Shakespeare Behind Bars," which focuses on a group of men in prison rehearsing and performing The Tempest. 

This event is free and open to anyone wanting to find out more info about next year, and/or to watch this powerful documentary. For those only interested in watching the documentary, please arrive by 7:30 PM.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Ellicia at
