About the Production

Thank you to everyone who auditioned!  We were overwhelmed and excited by your talent and enthusiasm!  Below is information for Call Back Auditions for Thursday January 20th.  Please reach out to Stephanie Hettrick [email protected] with questions.

The Antipodes – Callback List (Studio Theatre)

For the callback, you will be working in groups with stories from the script as the text.  Read through the story options HERE and pick the one that speaks to you the most.

Don’t worry about which character is which; you can play with any story. A few of the stories are quite long, so you can read the whole story for context but then select a short section that is no longer than 1 minute.  You don’t need to memorize the story but spend some time with it and prepare to tell the story in a group setting.  Jonathan is quite excited to see how you make it your own (without changing the words other than skipping any interrupting lines and making cuts where necessary).

You will be called in groups. Please note the time for each. Callbacks are today, January 20th and will be at the STUDIO THEATRE where auditions were held. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!
