Renown’d in Padua for her scolding tongue.”

Candidates who have not appeared in a scripted MSC production during the past three years, please sign up for a monologue slot. Your prepared monologue should consist of a sonnet or Shakespearean monologue under two minutes. Memorization is encouraged but not required. After your monologue, you may be asked to stay to read from the text in scene groupings.

Candidates who have appeared in an MSC production 2015-present should bypass the monologue and report to one of the audition nights at 7:30 PM for readings from the text in scene groupings.

Please be ready to complete a conflict calendar, or better still, print and fill out the formĀ here.
