Auditions for “Queer & Now” at UMass

Queer & Now Auditions
February 23, 12:00-6:00 PM
UMass Amherst Fine Arts Center, Room 204

Queer & Now is an unapologetically feminist, trans-inclusive, futuristic devised physical theater company that combines drag, lip syncing, and dance to create evenings of joy, liberation, and empowerment for its performers and audiences.

Our newest installment will be centered on queering practices in sex education. Using lip sync, dance, humor, and a whole lot of honesty, we will tackle underrepresented issues in sex ed.

Please come out and audition to be part of this exciting new work.

Auditions will be group exercises with other folks who have signed up for your time slot. You do not need to prepare anything for the audition. All we ask is that you come dressed to move.

We strongly welcome performers of all identities! You do not need to have any drag experience to be a part of this ensemble.

Rehearsals will take place on weekends between March–April, supplemented by occasional weekday evenings, as available.

All possible dates include: March 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 23, 27, 28, 29; April 4, 5, 11, 18, 19, 26, 30.

Schedule will be finalized based on team availability.

The rehearsal process will include an in-progress showing at UMass in early May (date TBD depending on team availability – either May 1, 3, 5, or 6).

Additionally, ensemble members must be available for a 3-day residency at The Foundry in West Stockbridge, MA from May 14–16. Housing can be arranged for this residency.
