THEATRE DEPT – RADIO DRAMAS: Calling All Actors

The Theater Department is getting ready for RADIO DRAMAS, and we’re looking for actors/performers. If you’ve ever wanted to act, do voice work, or be a part of a theater production, NOW is the time! 

TL;DR: We’re currently looking for actors for our fall production. For the show, you’ll be working with other passionate students, for a small time commitment with exciting and challenging material, and a ½ credit on your transcript. If that’s interesting to you, reach out to Ann Marie Dorr at ad19@williams.edu 

RADIO DRAMAS is a collaborative audio performance that is a student-led experience — think of this like a radio drama from the 1940s or your modern day podcast. We will be working with two very different but very dynamic playwrights: Gertrude Stein and Suzan-Lori Parks. As this is a student-led experience, you will be working with student directors, student designers, student stage managers alongside the guidance of wonderful guest artist mentors that are there to help you through the process. 

Time commitment should be no more than 10 hours per week! Rehearsals start in October and run through the beginning of November. Our post-production will be in November. If you’re thinking about doing the theater major this is a wonderful way to dip your toes into the work that we typically do, and get to know the community. If you are not, but just want to be part of this creative process, you’re also in luck, this is a wonderful way to stretch your creative muscles and have some fun! 

All students will automatically be enrolled in THEA 290, the ½ credit department production class. This essentially means that your involvement in the show will be represented on your transcript as a PASS/FAIL credit in addition to your other coursework. 

To sign up, please reach out to Ann Marie Dorr (Theatre Dept. Production Manager) at ad19@williams.edu. If you are interested, please send us a short video (1-2 minutes, no more) either simply expressing your interest, or, and especially if you have not previously participated in a Department production, including a short monologue (or section) just so we can get a sense of you as a performer. Please send these materials in by Thursday September 16th.

If you have ANY questions or want to take a look at Gertrude Stein and Suzan-Lori Park’s material, please reach out to Ann Marie Dorr at ad19@williams.edu.
