Company Auditions for 2017-2018 season

Company Auditions for The Rude Mechanicals' 2017-2018 Season will take place on May 21, from 5 PM to 8 PM at the Tri-Cities Academy of Ballet, and on May 22 at The Uptown Theatre from 6 PM to 8:30 PM.

The Rude Mechanicals believe that diverse ideas, cultures and traditions reflect our community and enrich our insights into the work we present on stage. We are committed to diversity in all areas of our work. All interested community members are encouraged to audition for our productions.

Auditionees will be able to notify the artistic staff on their paperwork which shows they want to be considered for. They can audition for all three shows, or just one, or a couple main stage shows and some educational outreach, etc. 

Auditionees will be required to prepare two contrasting Shakespearian monologues, totalling no more than five minutes in length.
