Fall Mainstage Production Auditions

All the world's a stage ... at CLUB FOREST (of Arden).

Set in 1980s New York City, the Theater Studies fall mainstage production of As You Like It is a study in contrasts between an uptown, straight-laced, gilded court and downtown, scrappy, queer ballroom culture. The Forest of Arden is the ballroom/club where banished bois, grrls, and more flee and frolic in a story of gender-fluid love and laughter, undaunted by the unflinching outside world.

Imagined with a cast of 11 diverse actors, reflective of NYC's status as a global crossroads, students will play roles across the gender continuum. Material from the play will be made available for auditioners. Students are welcome to prepare a 1-minute Shakespeare comedic monologue in advance but this is not required to be considered. Scripts can be picked up in advance from Page 109.
