Performers need not bring in a monologue but please do wear flexible clothes and shoes that will not inhibit your movement. Familiarize yourself with the play. This play is ensemble based. All actors with the exception of the actor who plays Christopher participate in the ensemble. They are all engaged in creating Christopher’s world. The show will incorporate the use of acrobatic skills, postmodern dance, and Brechtian staging. The mise en scène is fluid, a continuous creation of the ensemble.

A SignUpGenius appointment will not be needed for this audition.

The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time is rated ‘PG-13’. All are welcome, characters are age suggested.
