Women and War
November 30 and December 1 (you only need to attend one day)
3:15pm - in the auditorium
Please see below for complete audition information.
Women and War is a play set in a presentational style similar to 26 Pebbles orThe Laramie Project. Based on historical facts, it is presented through a collection of stories told in letters and monologues by generations of Americans impacted by conflicts, from The Civil War to the War in Afghanistan. Following women’s journeys from housewife to worker, young bride to nurse, and young woman to solider, these are tales of sacrifice, love, resolution, and hope told by those who bravely persevere on the home front and on the battlefield.
Women and War allows for extremely flexible casting, and offers many male and female roles.
Rehearsals begin in December. Planned performances are February 4-6. Depending on health and safety guidelines at the time, the show may alternatively be recorded and streamed if an in-person audience is not allowed.
All students auditioning should prepare one of the monologues included below. There are two male monologues and three female monologues from which to choose. These monologues should be memorized and performed with intent.
Audition Form and Conflict Calendar
Those auditioning also need to fill out an audition form and a conflict calendar, either in advance or the day of auditions. The conflict calendar lists all POSSIBLE rehearsal times. We use it to try to build a schedule that has a minimal amount of conflicts for rehearsals. Please make sure you list on your audition day ANY conflicts you have with any of those times.
If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Wegner in room 1050 or via email at email@example.com. Break a leg!
