Eldred Theater Auditions

Spring Semester Auditions!

Auditions for the spring semester productions at CWRU’s Eldred Theater will be held Monday November 16 and Tuesday November 17 from 5.00-8.00 pm in the Eldred Theater.  Call-backs for both shows will be on Wednesday November 18, also from 5.00-8.00.  A sign-up sheet will be posted in the Eldred Theater lounge the week prior to the auditions. The auditions are open to the university community.

This spring’s productions are The Cripple of Inishmaan by Martin McDonagh and Proof by David Auburn. Theater majors are expected to perform a contemporary monologue of no longer than two minutes, and those interested in being considered for The Cripple of Inishmaan may be asked to read a short speech utilizing an Irish dialect.  Non-majors will be provided sides from one of the plays to read at the audition.

The Cripple of Inishmaan — runs Feb 19-28; Rehearsals begin Tues, January 19

Proof — runs April 8-17; Rehearsals begin Monday, February 29
