The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of Theatre will hold auditions for its two fall mainstage shows, "Our Town" and the rock musical "Spring Awakening," on Aug. 20 and 21 from 6 - 8 P.M. in the Weber Fine Arts Building, room 333, on the UNO campus. Callbacks will be Aug. 23 from 5 - 9 P.M.

A timeless portrait of life in the mythical village of Grover’s Corners, "Our Town" has become an American classic with universal appeal. This beloved Pulitzer Prize winner has been produced throughout the world. A simple story of a love affair is constantly rediscovered because it asks timeless questions about the meaning of the circle of life.
The musical "Spring Awakening" will be UNO’s second Mainstage production, with book and lyrics by Steven Sater, and composed by Duncan Sheik. Co-directors are Doran Schmidt and Wai Yim, who will also be Musical Director and Choreographer, respectively. The show runs Nov. 15 - 18, 29 - 30, and Dec. 1 - 2.
"Spring Awakening" is a dynamic rock musical about a dozen young people who negotiate the thrilling, complicated and mysterious time of sexual awakening.
