    The Theatre & Performance program at Georgia Southern opens their performance season with the fourth annual Wham! Bam! Play Slam! The free, fun-filled performance features original scripts written, rehearsed and performed in a mere 24 hours.
    The opportunity calls for quick-thinking and creativity by randomly matching playwrights, actors and directors one night before the show. After a long night of improvising and brainstorming, playwrights put together a short play for their cast. By 3 p.m. the next day, rehearsals begin, and at 7:30 p.m. the curtain opens.
    Students can look forward to a great time and the opportunity to make new friends, while audiences can enjoy a preview of the talent and ingenuity to be displayed all year long.
     A large crowd is expected, so audience members are encouraged to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to curtain in order to get preferred seating.
     Individuals interested in participating should contact the program staff via email at theatre@georgiasouthern.edu.
    For aspiring Georgia Southern thespians, the Theatre & Performance program will be holding auditions for fall shows Aug. 16–17, starting at 6:30 p.m., in the Center for Art & Theatre. Auditions are open to all students regardless of major. Sign-up sheets for audition times are available at the Center for Art & Theatre box office.
    Students will be auditioning for the shows Crumbs from the Table of Joy, written by Lynn Nottage and directed by Mical Whitaker; and She Kills Monsters, written by Qui Nguyen and directed by Nicholas Newell. Crumbs roles are open to three African American women, one white woman and one African American man and will be performed Sept. 21–28. Monsters roles are open to eight women and four men, as well as five additional actors of any gender and all ethnicities. The show will be performed Nov. 9–16.
    Actors need not prepare any material for the auditions and will be expected to bring a printed class and work schedule. For actors’ convenience, scripts are available online at the Communication Arts website under the "theatre" heading.
    Participants are asked to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their scheduled time — and to be ready to have some fun! Further questions may be directed to the Center for Art & Theatre box office at (912) 478-5379 or at theatre@georgiasouthern.edu.
