REVISED******Auditions for Punk Rock (First show of the 2016-2017 season)*******REVISED

by Simon Stephens

Directed by Dr. A Berkeley

Punk Rock (5M, 3W) is a portrait of British high school students studying for the equivalent of the SAT or ACT (which will determine where they will go to college) when anxieties are guaranteed to run high. The usual teasing, flirting, roughhousing and power-playing are intensified among the students who share a teacher-free school room. Steadily simmering tensions lead to an explosive ending that shows young people's capacity for inhumanity toward each other.

Performance dates: September 22-25, 2016 & Sept. 29-Oct. 2, 2016

You can pick up a copy of the script to borrow for two hours and read from Sue Wilder in the main office.

Send questions to Dr. Berkeley,

Auditions will be held in Performance Studio 1 (CAB 1092) as follows:

We've had a much larger number of students sign up for Monday's auditions for Punk Rock than I anticipated. Thus I've decided to audition students who signed up for a slot between 6:30 and 8:00 tonight, Monday, and those who signed up between 8:00 and 9:30 on Tuesday. Auditions will begin both nights at 6:30. Then I'll hold call-backs on Monday, April 25th, also at 6:30.

Please accept my apologies if I've inconvenienced anyone. With every slot filled (which I didn't expect at all) I'll lose my concentration at about 8:30 and won't be able to do justice to each of your auditions.

Thanks for your understanding. I look forward to seeing you all!

Dr. Berkeley
