An important reminder: New Play Festival Auditions are coming up next week on Monday at 6 PM in the Mendocino College Little Theatre.  In order to audition, all actors will need to show proof of vaccination.  Please remember to bring ID and proof of vaccination to the auditions on Monday!

This is necessary both to comply with county and college guidelines, and also to allow us to be unmasked during our performances.  For auditions, all actors MUST remain masked.  Thank you for your cooperation on this matter!

Eight 10-minute plays by local writers, all directed by Mendocino College student directors, will be performed April 7-9, 2022.

This is an annual highlight of the college theatre program returns after a two year hiatus. Come join the fun! Auditions start at 6 PM on Monday February 28 in the college Little Theatre. Call-backs, if needed, will be scheduled on Tuesday March 1.

No preparation is necessary, and all are encouraged to audition. Prior theatre experience is not needed! Please do note that in order to allow us to perform this production without masks, all participants, including crew and cast, must be fully vaccinated in order to participate. Mendocino College defines “full vaccination” as having had two doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or 1 dose of the J & J vaccine.   For more information, e-mail redelman@mendocino.edu or call (707) 468-3172.

Auditions start at 6 PM on Monday February 28 in the college Little Theatre.
