Auditions for Oddfellows Teen Repertory Company

On September 7, 8 and 9 Oddfellows Playhouse Youth Theater will hold auditions for its fall productions of RUR by Karel Capek, adapted by Dr. Claudia Novak and The Life of Galileo by Bertolt Brecht from 7-9 p.m. The Teen Repertory Company is for students ages 14-20.

In preparation for the auditions, students can take part in Pre-audition Workshops Tuesday August 31, Wednesday September 1 and Thursday September 2 from 7-9pm. There is no charge for Pre-Audition workshops or to audition. Each Pre-audition Workshop is led by a different teaching artist. It is recommended that students attend at least one Pre-audition workshop.

The Teen Repertory Company is a unique opportunity for adventurous, committed teenagers to experience cutting-edge theater in a supportive, challenging, and noncompetitive environment. The Company takes on mature, thought-provoking material—classic and modern—with bold energy and high artistic standards. A diverse collection of young people from throughout central Connecticut, supported by professional directors and designers, combine to create a season that you won't find in many high schools. The Teen Repertory Company performs two mainstage shows this fall and two in the spring.

Pre-Audition Workshops and Auditions will be held at Oddfellows Playhouse at 128 Washington St. in Middletown. Tuition for the program is $250. Financial aid and workstudy options are available. Interested students or parents with additional questions should call Producing Artistic Director Jeffery Allen at 860-347-6143.
