(This information is also available on our Facebook event page:)


Audition Dates:

Saturday December 7th, 1:00-5:00pm

Sunday December 8th, 1:00-5:00pm

(Call backs Sunday December 15th, 1:00-5:00pm.)


Location: Our rehearsal space near Sungshin Women's University Station (성신여대입구역) (Line #4) (see directions below)


Actors of all experience levels are welcome to audition. We are looking for a strong ensemble of actors who function well in a collaborative environment. This year we are not asking for prepared monologues. Auditionees will be asked to read from sides. The sides will be posted here approximately one week before auditions. They do not need to be memorized. We highly recommend getting some familiarity with the entire play before the audition, through reading the play and/or watching a variety of productions on video. 


At least one character in this play sings. We will give all auditionees an opportunity to sing something in the audition if they wish (just a few bars, unaccompanied). Also, if you play a musical instrument, please bring it to the audition if possible.


To schedule your audition, email with your name, phone number, and preferred audition time.


AUDITION TIMES (choose 1):


Saturday December 7th:

A: 1:00-1:50pm

B: 2:00-2:50pm

***Please arrive approximately 15 minutes before your audition time. There will be an audition form to fill out in the stairwell while you are waiting. (The rehearsal room will be a comfortable temperature, but the stairwell will be cold, so please dress accordingly.) Remember to allow yourself extra time to find the space.





Address: 4-8 Dongseong-dong, 1(il)-ga, Seongbuk-Gu (성북구 동선동 1가 4-8번지), 4th floor






Sungshin Women's University Station (성신여대입구역) (subway line #4). 


Go out Exit 1. Turn right at the first major pedestrian street (at KB bank, just after Innisfree). Walk about 150 yards. Turn right at Tony Moly. Walk about 50 yards to Glow Bar or 7080 Bar on the right. Come up to the 4th floor.


Go out Exit 2 and walk straight (down the tree-lined street) for about 120 yards. Turn left at the Emart 24. Walk about 50 yards to Glow Bar or 7080 Bar on the left (look for the signs up high as you approach). Come up to the 4th floor.

(Exit 2 was recently built and is quicker and more pleasant. Exit 1 may be more familiar to those who have been to the space before.)
