Casting 5 men, 5 women, 5 robot operators for this surreal STEM journey to the Amazon rain forest where robots have abducted a suicidal Michigan housewife to play the title role in their robot production of Hedda Gabler. Familiarity with Ibsen’s play is helpful for auditions but not necessary. Those auditioning for non-robot roles will be given sides from the play to read. Perusal copies of Heddatron can be signed out from Cindy Notaroberto in the 248 main office. Students with expert video game and joy stick dexterity are encouraged to audition for the robot operators. Students with experience videotaping live are also encouraged to audition.  Weiss Theater performance dates: February 28, 29, March 1, 6, 7, 8, 2020 [It’s leap year!].
