Queer & Now

AUDITIONS: Queer & Now

QUEER & NOW (wearequeerandnow.com) is a ensemble theater project that fuses physical theater, drag, lip syncing, choreography, and gender play to create an evening of celebration and protest. It features a series of vignettes, devised by and owned by the members of the ensemble, that create a varied queer tapestry of our lived experiences, our questions, our desires, and our possibilities. Premiering on the UMass Amherst campus in Fall 2017 to great audience response, the project will continue this Fall with a brand new installment exploring mythology.


Tuesday, September 25 6:30 - 10:30pm & Wednesday, September 26 6:30 - 10:30pm

French Hall, Room 102, UMass Amherst


Thursday, September 27 6:30 - 10:30pm

French Hall, Room 102, UMass Amherst


* You do not need to prepare anything for the audition! The audition will consist of devising exercises with your fellow ensemble members, so come ready to move, collaborate, dance, and (maybe!) lip sync.

* You do not need any experience with queer performance, or specifically drag. We welcome newcomers to this kind of performance and theater, and emphasize this project as a space of exploration and discovery of queer possibility.

* Scheduling logistics...The project will begin rehearsals with 1 rehearsal a week for the weeks of September 30 - October 21. The project will then begin an intensive four-week rehearsal process with nightly rehearsals (4-5 per week) from October 28 - November 30. Technical rehearsals will begin December 2, with performances December 6 - 8 in the Arts Bridge of the Fine Arts Center at UMass Amherst.

* You unfortunately cannot be part of Queer & Now if you have a commitment that overlaps significantly with our rehearsals. E.g. if you are part of UMass Theater -- you unfortunately cannot be part of this project if you are involved with "What of the Night?" in ANY capacity (stage management, cast, 110, etc.) or other projects in November & December with a notable rehearsal commitment.


If you have any questions, concerns, comments, complaints, hopes, dreams, desires, jokes, ideas -- please email [email protected]!
