Auditions for Classics at Brucemore

Classics-at-Brucemore-ms30rw.jpgIn 1996, the Classics at Brucemore began, launching outdoor theater in Eastern Iowa. With a rich history of live, outdoor theater, the Classics serves as a signature annual event at Brucemore.  More than a play performed outdoors, the best Classics productions take advantage of Brucemore’s historic estate and natural amphitheater, allowing actors to emerge from the woods, utilize the area’s trees, get dunked in the pond, and help themselves to picnics in the audience space.

You're invited to audition for this year's production: Of Mice and Men. 

Auditions: Sunday, March 24 at 6:30 PM or Monday, March 25 at 6:30 PM

Callbacks (as needed): Tuesday, March 26 at 6:30 PM. Callbacks for specific roles will be announced the morning of March 26 on Brucemore’s website and Facebook page.

Location: Visitor Center in the old Carriage House at Brucemore (2160 Linden Dr. SE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52403)

Parking: Parking is available around the Visitor Center.
