McNeese Theatre Roundup Set

McNeese Theatre Roundup Set

(August 17, 2016) The annual McNeese State University Theatre Roundup will be held at 5:30 p.m.  Thursday, Aug. 25, in Tritico Theatre.

The Lake Area community is invited to meet the theatre program faculty, production directors and students and receive information about the season’s productions, auditions and technical work.

Directors will give an overview of the upcoming theatre season and explain the audition procedure. Auditions are open to all McNeese students, faculty and staff and area residents.

McNeese’s 2016-2017 season will kick off with “Lizard,” written by Dennis Covington. The play – which will run Sept. 28-Oct. 2 - was originally written by Covington as a novel after he was stationed at Fort Polk in the early 1970s. It is a coming-of-age story about 13-year-old Lucius Sims, a physically deformed boy who is nicknamed Lizard. The play explores what it means to be a family and how each person has a special strength and wisdom within to overcome the judgmental views of others.

Audition signup sheets and packets are available on the bulletin board in the lobby of Tritico Theatre. Auditions will be held from 5-8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26, in Tritico, while callbacks will be held from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, in Tritico.
