Open Auditions: R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots)

Have you ever dreamed of being a robot? If you want to live your dreams, come try out for this fall's production, R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots).

Auditions are being held August 5 and August 6 on Zoom by appointment, between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
