Audition for student theater productions

Calling all actors! Auditions begin tomorrow for two fall St. Catherine University and University of St. Thomas student theater productions, "ComedySportz: University League" and an Ibsen masterpiece, "Hedda Gabler."

Auditions are open to all St. Catherine and St. Thomas students; come to one audition for one or both shows.

Auditions will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 15, in Rooms 13 and 17 of Brady Educational Center on St. Thomas' south campus, and at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16, in Frey Theater at St. Catherine University, 2004 Randolph Ave.

"ComedySportz: University League" runs at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 16-17 and 23-24, in O'Shaughnessy Educational Center auditorium at St. Thomas.  Two teams of actors go head to head for the biggest laughs, while a referee calls the fouls and gets suggestions from the audience. Roles available include on-stage performers as well as one keyboardist/special effects operator. At auditions, be prepared for group movement and improvisational exercises. Questions? Contact Jo Ann Holonbek, (651) 690-6681.

"Hedda Gabler" runs at 7 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, Nov. 18-21, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22, in Frey Theater at St. Catherine. The play reveals bitter conflicts and thwarted desires behind a facade of civility in the title character's world. The cast includes four women and three men. To audition, be prepared to read from the script. Questions? Contact director Teresa Lyons Hegdahl, (651) 690-6683.
