Open Auditions Set For OUE’s First-Ever Production ‘Scattered Shakespeare’ Online

ST. CLAIRSVILLE — The Theater Department of Ohio University Eastern announces open community auditions for its upcoming virtual production of “Scattered Shakespeare.”

This production is a collection of scenes and monologues from Shakespeare that will be chosen by the Ohio Eastern Theatre cast and Director Dennis Fox. OUE Theatre’s first-ever virtual production “Scattered Shakespeare” will be performed once via live internet streaming in April 2021.

Auditions will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24, and Thursday, Feb. 25, via Zoom. Auditions are open to the anyone in the community.

Anyone interested, — including public school students and community members — are heartily encouraged to audition.

No previous theater or Shakespeare experience is necessary. Auditions will be cold readings only, so a prepared audition piece is not necessary. The readings to be used will be posted before auditions.

Those interested in auditioning should visit the Ohio University Eastern website, www.ohio.edu/eastern/current-students/theatre to register for the Zoom audition.

All rehearsals will begin on March 8 and will be held virtually on Zoom. Ohio University students are eligible for credit through THAR 2100. The live performance will be held at a time to be determined on Friday, April 16; Saturday, April 17; or on Sunday, April 18.
