Join a small troupe of students in a traveling show that will not only go to Brattleboro area schools, but represent NEYT this summer at the Green River Theater Festival. If you are interested in building a show based in commedia, physical comedy, and clown and want to work with a strong mixed-age troupe, join Rosa and Jonny in this concentrated, committed, and fun work. We are accepting 7 students into the troupe so there will be a real chance for advanced, individual training.

JUNIOR COMPANY WINTER PLAY
Campalot and the Knights of the Square Table
Written and directed by Peter Gould
AUDITIONS: Wednesday, November 16 from 3:45-5pm
In the fun tradition of recent NEYT Peter projects, "Robin Hood" and "Treasure Island," we will create a new imaginative version of the famous tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Stringing several of them together, we'll especially look at how the ancient Druid magic translates to today, and how the Quests for the Secret of the Green Knight, and for the Holy Grail, can make great opportunities for cool physical comedy and zany word play.
Please learn a one or two minute speech or poem for the audition, especially something that harks back to tournaments, jousting, sword play, knights, and ladies. And, speaking of ladies, this new version will focus on Camelot through a female lens! Come work under the Sign of the Four with Peter! (Heart/Mind/Body/Voice)
REHEARSALS beginning January 3. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Extended rehearsals Tech. week; February 6-10.
SENIOR COMPANY SPRING PLAY
THE HOT L BALTIMORE by Lanford Wilson
Directed by Hallie Flower
AUDITIONS: November 13th 12-2:30 pm
Ages 13-19 tuition $450
"For me, 'The Hot L Baltimore' is a play about losers refusing to lose. To me they're brave people. They are survivors."
Playwright Lanford Wilson explaining his characters.
The Hotel Baltimore used to be the swankiest place in town—now it has a date with the wrecking ball. Eviction notices just went out to its residents, who live on the fringes of society and call the once elegant; now tarnished hotel home. This acclaimed play from author Lanford Wilson (set in 1973) is filled with everyday humanity—unexpectedly intimate and moving. The Hot L Baltimore reveals the lives of an unconventional community about to be set adrift once more.
Please come prepared with a brief (less than 2 minute) monologue from a contemporary play or novel.
REHEARSALS Begin February 13th
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday (& one Saturday)
PERFORMANCES: April 7,8, 9 and 14, 15
