Auditions are open to members of the University and Jacksonville communities. There are roles for 15 males and eight females, all ages and races. There are some singing roles and a role for a male actor age 30 to 40, who can also play the guitar.


Auditions will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 13, and Thursday, Jan. 14, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.; and Saturday, Jan. 16, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. On Saturday there will also be singing auditions. All auditions are in the Robinson Theater on the UNF campus. Parking is available behind the UNF Fine Arts Center.


A short, one- to two-minute prepared monologue is suggested. Vocalists should bring their own CD accompaniment or sing a cappella.
