UIS to hold auditions for 'I Hate Hamlet'

The Theatre Program at the University of Illinois Springfield will hold open auditions for the first production of its 2011-2012 season, Paul Rudnick’s “I Hate Hamlet,” at 7 p.m. Aug. 28-29 in the Studio Theatre, located on level one of the Public Affairs Center on the campus. Callbacks will be at 7 p.m. Aug. 30.

Auditions are open to anyone, with or without experience and will consist of “cold readings” from the script. Prepared monologues are welcome but not mandatory, and resumes are appreciated but are not required. Scripts are available for check-out at Brookens Library.

Those interested in working on a crew will be asked to fill out a crew application form and meet briefly at 6 p.m. Aug. 28 or 29 in the Studio Theatre.

Production dates are Oct. 28-30 and Nov. 3-5.

The play was featured in an August 25, 2011, article in the Jacksonville Journal-Courier.
