More about the play

A typical end of the millennium story involving cross dressing, hallucinogenic drugs, confused sexuality, alternative religions and apocalyptic dreams ... end of the first millennium, that is. A not-so-pure Maiden is sent to marry a not-so-manly Lord, who is advised by a not-so-celibate Priest, and protected by a not-so-insensitive Thug in an England ruled by a King who won't get out of bed.

2021-22 Scholarship Auditions

Scholarship auditions for the 2021-2022 academic year will be on June 28. 

Monday, June 28 | 1-4 p.m.
Bodker Black Box – Midwest Trust Center

To prepare:

  • Fill out the sign-up form to schedule a 10-minute audition appointment.
  • Complete the application form (PDF) and bring it to your audition, along with a résumé outlining your theatre experience by job or role and production.
  • Bring or mail at least one letter of recommendation from a theatre teacher or director. (Students who have participated in our productions previously do not need to bring a recommendation letter).
  • Prepare a memorized monologue, no more than 2 minutes in length, to present to the faculty. If you sing, you may prepare 32 bars to perform in addition to the monologue (bring accompaniment on tape or CD or perform a cappella). If you are interested primarily in technical theatre, you may present a portfolio of your work instead of performing a monologue. Appropriate items could include production or stage manager’s books, drafting, class projects, artwork, etc.
