The Milwaukee Youth Theatre will hold open auditions for William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night for students ages 10 through 18 on February Monday, February 22nd and Tuesday, February 23rd from 6:00 to 8:00pm. We plan to cast 14 to 16 actors. Auditions will be held at Lincoln Center of the Arts 820 E. Knapp St Milwaukee
Call or e-mail us to schedule a 30 minute time slot to audition with a group of students. Walk-ups will be taken on a first come first serve basis. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to fill out an audition form. Those planning to audition should prepare a one minute or less monologue from Shakespeare. A sonnet would also be acceptable. Students should also be prepared to participate in a warm-up and movement activity. It is helpful to bring aphoto. Those casted may be asked to print a PDF of the script. Students will also need to attend a meeting with their parents on Monday, February 29th from 6:00-8:00pm. Rehearsals will begin that week and will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5:50-8:00pm. Monday rehearsals will be added in April. Public and school performances will be on April 28th and 29th, 2016.
