Auditions for The New Blackfest's Hands Up!

The SUNY Plattsburgh Department of Theatre and director Keith Bolden are holding auditions for Hands Up on September 17, 2020 at 6 p.m. on Zoom. 

Students are asked to sign up for 10 minute audition slots to present their 1 – 2 minute monologues. The Hands Up script is available at the Feinberg Library under THE245. Digital copies and all audition materials (audition form, sign up sheet, scripts, Zoom link, director contact info, etc.) are available at the following link:


As an alternative to auditioning live on Zoom with the director, students may submit a pre-recorded audition video for consideration. Videos submitted in this way should be clearly recorded for viewing by September 17, 2020. Please click the audition materials link above for video submissions.
