General auditions for College of DuPage College Theater's spring productions of "The Dining Room," by A.R. Gurney, and "Badger," by Don Zolidis will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan 14, and noon Saturday, Jan 15, in McAninch Arts Center, Room 188, on the Glen Ellyn campus, 425 Fawell Blvd.

Auditions will include a reading of a monologue from each show. No experience is required. If cast, actors must register for Theater 1120 or 1121. Cast members are required to register in order to participate.


"The Dining Room," directed by Theater Department Chair Connie Canaday Howard, runs Feb. 24 to March 13, in the MAC's Studio Theatre. Covering seven decades of upper middle class WASP family life in New England, the play's vignettes around a dining room table offer a mosaic of stories demonstrating that change is inevitable.

"Badger," directed by Theater Professor Amelia Barrett, runs March 24 to April 3 in the MAC's Playhouse Theatre. Five young women take newly available jobs at the Badger Ordnance Works during World War II. Facing dangerous work in a hostile work environment, the women bond through joy and heartbreak.
