UNI Interpreters Theatre Auditions

Auditions for CONVICT, written and directed by Joshua Hamzehee, will be held on Tuesday, November 13 from 7-9pm and on Thursday, November 15 from 6-8pm.  The auditions are open to all UNI students and also community members.  No preparation or prior experience necessary.

There are 10 roles available, both males and females are encouraged to audition for all roles. 

The production is set in a men's prison and follows the experience of Cyrus, a single father convicted of murder.  CONVICT explores the liminal space between guilt and innocence, our expectations of masculinity, and our overcrowded penal system's tendency to punish rather than rehabilitate.
