Auditions

Auditions for the Theater Program's spring mainstage productions will take place on Sunday, December 4 at 4:00 pm in Bucknall Theater.

All UNH students are welcome and encouraged to audition.

To audition, please prepare a one-minute monologue and the assigned vocal audition (sheet music is available in the Performing Arts office, Dodds 208; audio is available on Spotify and other streaming services). Please also bring jazz or ballet shoes if you have them and arrive dressed to move. If you are not interested in the musical, you only need to prepare the monologue.

Auditions will begin with a 45-minute choreography session. (If you do not wish to audition for the musical, you may arrive at 5pm.) Callbacks will immediately follow auditions.

 

You may audition for one or both shows:

 

The Nether

By Jennifer Haley

Directed by Jonathan Yukich

March 1-4

A new virtual wonderland provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every whim. But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers a dark battle over technology and human desire. Winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, The Nether is both serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the consequences of living out our private dreams.

 

How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying

Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser, Book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock, and Willie Gilbert

Directed by Steve Luber

April 19-22

Winner of the Tony for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize, this musical follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant “company man,” the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love. A satire that feels just as poignant today as it did in 1961.
