STAR Productions at Saint Francis University will hold auditions for its spring production of, “If We Shadows”, on Friday, January 17, Saturday, January 18, and Sunday, January 19, in the Studio -basement of the Southern Allegheny Museum of Arts, on the Loretto campus. Audition times will be from 1- 3 pm each day. The performance dates are April 1 through April 5.

“If We Shadows” is a shortened (40 minutes) innovative way to present Shakespeare’s comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” The production needs actors to employ script in hand Readers’ Theatre techniques to speak the lines of the text. Their vocal performances will be accompanied by actors silently moving behind a shadow curtain portraying the action of the play. No preparation is required. Audition material and preparation time will be provided at the time of the audition. Persons of all ages and ranges of expertise can be a part of this adventure. A willingness to accept the challenge of doing something theatrically different is all that is needed.

Due to the flexible structure of the play, various groups will be able to rehearse separately until the time when the production moves to JFK Auditorium. The production will be overseen by Bonnie M. Resinski. Address questions to bresinski@francis.edu.
