Starting this Sunday afternoon, Kenyon College will undergo three solid days of auditions for upcoming shows. If you’ve ever wanted to be in anything, this could be your chance — there are only so many actors in Gambier, Ohio.
First, the aforementioned Sunday auditions for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, put up by Brave Potato Productions and to be directed by Robbie Sellers ’14. Since this is the only musical being done, prepare a little ditty to sing in the Gund Ballroom between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. on Feb. 5.
Next up, you can audition for the next KCDC mainstage show, Icarus and Aria, directed by Assistant Professor of Drama Kevin Rich, every drama major’s idol. For this one, you need to prepare two monologues from the show, which can be found if you search for “Icarus and Aria” in your inbox. The auditions are Monday, Feb. 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the Bolton Theater.
Finally, if you’ve been itching to work with Jamal Jordan ’12, audition for his senior thesis show, the last of the year, Lion in the Streets. No preparation necessary for this one, but you can access the script on the P: drive if you want to know what you’re getting into*. Show up to the Hill Theater this coming Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 4:15 p.m. to audition.
Nervous? Never acted before? Here’s our advice: just emulate this man.
