Audition Lab is a great way to prepare for upcoming auditions!

Students will prepare a monologue, develop successful strategies for cold readings, and learn how to create a professional resume.  The class ends with an audition for class members interested in auditioning for the experience, as well as roles in The Coterie’s mainstage 2022-2023 season.

PERFORMANCE CAMP: Welcome to the Moon

Welcome to the Moon is a collection of six short comedic plays that give all students a chance to shine! The plays are:

  • The Red Coat takes the audience to a Brooklyn sidewalk where a young man waits outside a party for a girl he hardly knows. 
  • Down and Out is about the failing Poet whose Love holds the key to his soul but a maniacal, hooded Figure means to ruin the Poet's life. 
  • Let Us Go Out into the Starry Night involves a man plagued by ghosts and monsters and a women whose only friend is a dummy. 
  • Out West centers on the old story of the coming of a Cowboy to a stereotypical wild western town, played out at about triple normal speed! 
  • A Lonely Impulse of Delight tells the whimsical tale of a man who wants to tell his best friend that he is in love with a mermaid living in the lake in New York's Central Park. 
  • Welcome to the Moon is about Stephen, a guy still madly in love with a girl he hasn't seen in 14 years.
