Season 31 begins... We're auditioning!
We know you're just as anxious and concerned as we are about the performing arts and what the current pandemic circumstances mean for theatre at Rochester. Because of the uncertainty of what the future holds, we're not announcing an official season at this time, but we will be doing theatre, be it live or online, this season! We want you to be a part of it whether you're on our (virtual) stage, behind the scenes, or in the audience!
So, join us as we start right now with auditions for the first production of the season: an online version of Nikolai Gogol's comedic masterpiece, The Government Inspector: a biting satire on greed, corruption, self-dealing, vanity, and self-interest—all those (not so) good ol' human traits that never seem to go out of fashion! Auditions will be held online and they're coming up at the end of August. More info is available on our auditions page. Be a part of the University's first virtual and online theatrical production!
Find out how we plan on keeping you safe and engaged in theatre this semester.
