Looking to escape a failing marriage, Matt, general manager for the Seattle Sun Dodgers, finds himself in Peoria, Ariz. He’s in town early putting the finishing touches on player contracts, but despite his efforts, Matt’s varied past is difficult to dodge. Especially when an old player has just received the publisher’s green light to write a rather revealing book outlining steroid use on the team. The book is all access. He’s naming names, and one of them is Matt’s new star first baseman.Twelfth Night
by William Shakespeare
7:30 p.m. April 18-20, 25-27; 2 p.m. April 21 and 28; Hartung Theater
A comedy of love lines crossed and mistaken identity, Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night follows the journey of a castaway, Viola. Shipwrecked on the shores of Illyria and separated from her twin brother she believes to be dead, Viola begins masquerading as a young page named Cesario. She enters the service of Duke Orsino. Orsino is love-struck by Lady Olivia, a woman who will have nothing to do with suitors. Orsino decides to use Cesario as a intermediary to confess his love to Olivia. However, Olivia, believing the messenger to be a man, falls in love with Cesario. And Viola, in turn, falls in love with Orsino. To complicate things further, Sebastian, Viola’s twin brother, is alive and well.Callbacks Nov. 16.

Notes from the director - Three Strikes to First
Actors will be called on at 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 25 to begin workshopping the play. Actors will need to be back in Moscow from Winter Break at 10 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 6 for rehearsals. There will be a full day of rehearsals Jan. 6-8 prior to the start of spring semester. If you are cast in Three Strikes, you MUST be available during these dates. - Ray Pritchard
If you are interested particularly in Twelfth Night, you don't have to do a Shakespeare monologue. You certainly may choose to do one (even from the play) if you wish, but it's not a requirement. What I am mostly interested in seeing in your general audition is you and your connection to the material, your ability to be open to impulse and availability, and your continued development of your visceral application of intent-oriented work. - Chris DuVal
