Penn State Thespians To Host Virtual ‘Sound Of Music’ Auditions

The Penn State Thespian Society will host auditions for its upcoming virtual production of “The Sound Of Music” through Zoom.

Auditions will begin from 6 to 9 p.m. on Monday, August 31 through Wednesday, September 2. Students can audition using a 30-second monologue and a 30-second a capella song similar to the show’s style.

Director Kelly McGarrey says she is very excited to take on the challenge of directing the first virtual performance in the Thespians’ long history.

“I hope that we can perform this show to the level that any of our on-stage mainstages are performed, and that our cast and crew and audience can experience any form of ‘live’ theatre, as actual shows in this pandemic are difficult to come by,” McGarrey said. “I’m really looking forward to the entire process to hear everyone’s amazing voices and get ourselves a great cast.”

Interested performers can find additional information, including Zoom webinar links, over on the Thespians’ Facebook page.
