McGill Classical Studies is pleased to announce the 2012 Classics Play, a new English version of Euripides’ Hippolytos, directed by Carina de Klerk. This year’s production will feature original electronic music by Nick Donaldson, and will take place in early February 2012.
The goals of the Classics are simple: to give Classics students a new perspective on material that they usually only experience as written texts in the classroom, to give non-Classics students an opportunity to experience Ancient drama, and to bring that drama to the greater Montreal community. Inclusivity is key to these goals, and everyone who wants to participate can.
We are looking for people who have experience in communications, public relations, and media in addition to those who areinterested in assisting with elements of production, including costumes, lighting, and sound. The first production meeting will be Thursday, October 20th, at 4 pm in Ferrier 456.
Auditions for the play will take place Monday, October 31st, from 11:30 to 12:30, Thursday, November 3rd from 1 to 2, and Friday, November 4th, from 4:30-5:30.
Audition scripts and further information will be available on the bulletin board outside of Leacock 625 from Tuesday, October 18th.
For any further information, or to express interest in participating, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All students who are interested are welcomed and encouraged to participate.
