Auditions open for ‘Amadeus’ at William Woods

William Woods University will hold open auditions for the play “Amadeus” at 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, in Cutlip Auditorium of the McNutt Campus Center.

Auditions are open to high school and college students,
faculty and staff, and the community.

“Amadeus,” by Peter Schaffer, was the winner of a Tony Award
for Best Play and an Academy Award for Best Film. Based on the lives of composers
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri, the highly fictionalized play will be performed
at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 1, 2 and 3 and at 2 p.m. Dec. 4 in Cutlip Auditorium.
There will be roles available for
6-8 women and 8-9 men. No monologue is required for the audition as it will be
a cold reading from the script. However, it is strongly recommended that the
script be read before the audition.
Callbacks, by invitation only, will be Monday,
Oct. 17, at 7 p.m. in Cutlip Auditorium.
The production will be directed by Melissa
Alpers-Springer, assistant professor of communication and theatre. For more
