Thanks for your interest in auditioning for Proof! I am staging this production at the Pocket Theater in Greenwood with a cast and crew of entirely STEMM professionals. Please read the information below and then provide your information for auditions.
I will contact you with a specific time slot no less than one week before the auditions. (If your schedule has changed by then, please contact me after receiving the audition slot.)
Update: Auditions will be in the UW Computer Science building, room 203, on both days. The building is locked after 5pm. Please come to the sliding glass doors on the northeast side of the building and look for the sign with further instructions.
Work in or study a STEMM field? Interested in theater? Audition for Proof!
Proof is a play about mathematicians. Who better to perform the roles than mathematicians and other STEMM professionals? And that means you!
If you are currently or have ever worked in or studied:
- Science (natural, physical, or social)
- Technology or computer science
- Science writing
- Science, technology, and society studies
- Research support
- Any other field you consider under the umbrella of STEMM
You’re welcome to audition!
No performance experience necessary! Only a willingness to give it your best.
