"[The Metal Children] is a cold-eyed appraisal of the way we interpret (and misinterpret) literature.” — Mark Peikert, New York Press.

The sign-up sheet will be on the callboard outside of the Production Office (MTC 174) soon, along with a link to the digital audition form.

If you have a headshot and/or résumé, bring it with you to the audition, but they are not required. The play is available for check-out in the Script Library.

“The Metal Children” takes its name from a controversial but entirely fictional young adult novel by the messy and contradictory Tobin Falmouth. Falmouth’s fable about small-town teenagers getting pregnant and disappearing has taken on a life of its own in small town America: the local school board has banned the book from the high school curriculum, confiscated copies, and locked them away in a church vault. Falmouth, reluctantly arriving to defend his work, instead finds an unusual rebellion brewing.
