One afternoon, Anthony arrives unexpectedly at classmate Caroline's door bearing a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, an urgent assignment from their English teacher. Homebound due to illness, Caroline hasn't been to school in months, but she is as quick and sardonic as Anthony is athletic, sensitive, and popular. As these two let down their guards and share their secrets, this seemingly mundane poetry project unlocks a much deeper mystery that has brought them together. I and You is an ode to youth, life, love, and the strange beauty of human connectedness.

What You Need: Nothing, slides will be provided!

Frau Dada is about this badass chick right here (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hannah_Höch), Hannah Höch, an artist from Germany who made crazy collages and creepy dolls and was part of the Dada movement in Berlin in the 1920's. Together with her eccentric, monacle-wearing partner, Raoul Hausmann, Hannah Höch was part of a movement to redefine art in the aftermath of the First World War--nevertheless, she faced the challenge of being a woman in an art community dominated by men. At times funny and at times tragic, Frau Dada tells the story of Hannah Höch's balancing act between her identities as a (queer) woman and as an artist.

Everyone is welcome to audition, regardless of race, sex, gender identity, nationality, or prior acting experience

In BFE, a.k.a the middle-of-nowhere in quintessential American suburbia, blonde girls are disappearing from Panny’s school. As the fourteen year old Panny navigates surviving adolescence along with her delusional mother Isabel who gifts her with the offer of “caucasian-izing” eyelid surgery on her birthday and her clueless yet supportive Uncle Lefty, BFE paints a funny, sad and often cynical portrait of human isolation and what it means to exist in a world that we don’t quite know how to inhabit. The show is also an exploration of different forms of Asian and Asian American identity, of the modern suburban landscape, the hunger for contact and what these things together can breed.

Constance and Sinestra live on the edge of a cliff with their mad taxidermist father who never comes upstairs. Their lives take a dramatic turn when two mysterious bakers move into town and the boy next door comes to train in the art of taxidermy. If Tim Burton, Neil Gaiman, and Roald Dahl put their brains together, they might have created this highly-stylized and heartbreaking one-act musical tale of love, loss, and baking.

“Proof is the story of an enigmatic young woman, Catherine, her manipulative sister, their brilliant father, and an unexpected suitor. They are all pieces of the puzzle in the search for the truth behind a mysterious mathematical proof. This poignant drama about love and reconciliation unfolds on the back porch of a house settled in a suburban university town, that is, like David Auburn’s writing, both simple and elegant.”

Come audition for Second Stage's Production of Eugene Ionesco's Rhinoceros! This absurdist play tells the story of Berenger, a depressed outcast who seems at odd with the perfectly manicured world around him. However, this world begins to fall apart as a rhinoceros suddenly appears trampling through the streets. Soon, there are two, then three, until the "movement" is universal: a transformation of average citizens into beasts, as they learn to "move with the times."

Our modern take on this classic absurd story will attempt to address issues of mob mentality and ideological violence as well as what kind of weight this story holds in our modern era.
