What is THE WOLVES?

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.

The Wolves premiered in a production by The Playwright’s Realm at The Duke on 42nd Street Theater in New York City in August 2016 under the direction of Lila Neugebauer.

CRITIC’S PICK! “The scary, exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence emanates from every scene of this uncannily assured first play by Sarah DeLappe.” – The New York Times

Please make note of the rehearsal, tech, and performance dates when signing up for auditions and filling out your audition form.

Auditions for Collaborations are Tuesday, August 23rd from 7:00PM-9:30PM in the Dance Studio. Check in begins at 6:30PM.

Please come warm and ready to move and dressed so that we can see your body (form-fitting clothing, bare feet, hair tied up). You do not need specialty shoes and do not need to wear a leotard/tights. You will have a short time to warm up in the space before the audition begins, but we prefer that you come warm if you can.

You will be grouped into small groups and taught a short combination to perform for the choreographers.

Auditions for The Wolves and Cinderella are Wednesday, August 24th from 6-10pm in the Empty Space Theatre.

Please prepare one 60 second contemporary monologue and 16-32 bars of a song that shows your range.  Feel free to use material that you’ve worked with before. If you do not wish to be considered for the musical, you can present one 60 second monologue.

Please note that Theater Performance Majors are required to audition with a monologue and a song.

6-7 Movement portion – dress in comfortable clothes to move.  You do not have to be a skilled dancer we are assessing how you move. This will be split into two groups (6-6:30 and 6:30-7) to accommodate those who may be late. All performance majors are required to attend this portion of the audition. Anyone auditioning for the musical needs to attend this portion of the audition.

7-9:30 Monologues –

  • 60 second monologue (will be provided if needed)
  • 16-32 Bars of music – please provide your sheet music. (Non-majors, if you do not have a song prepared you will be able to sing a familiar tune with the pianist)

Audition order is first come-first serve. We plan to bring in sets of 10 students at a time. Sign-in will start at 5:30PM and you will go into the audition room in the order you have signed in upon your arrival.
