The University of South Dakota Department of Theatre will hold auditions for Macbeth, Shakespeare's towering classic, Aug. 29 and 30, 7 to 10 p.m. in the Wayne S. Knutson Theatre. Macbeth chronicles the title character's bloody climb to the throne and ensuing fall, while examining themes of ambition, guilt, and the evil done for love.
Auditions will consist of readings from the script and, for those actors who want, a short, prepared monologue from one of Shakespeare's plays. People who plan to audition may bring their own copy of the play or sign out a script from the departmental office, room 184A in Fine Arts. Auditionees are asked to reserve a specific time on the theatre callboard located in the east hallway of the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts.
Rehearsals will begin soon after casting with performances occurring Oct. 11-15. Dr. Ronald L. Moyer, professor and chair of theatre, will direct the play and can be contacted at 677-5735 for further information.
