Fall Play Auditions for Eurydice will be on 
Tuesday, September 15th at 2:30 pm in the 
Performance Arts Center Auditorium 

Play Synopsis:    In Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists, and breathtaking visual effects, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story. "Rhapsodically beautiful. A weird and wonderful new play" - an inexpressibly moving theatrical fable about love, loss and the pleasures and pains of memory. - The New York Times "Exhilarating!! A luminous retelling of the Orpheus myth, lush and limpid as a dream where both author and audience swim in the magical, sometimes menacing, and always thrilling flow of the unconscious." - The New Yorker "Ruhl's wild flights of imagination, some deeply affecting passages and beautiful imagery provide transporting pleasures.  They conspire to create original, at times breathtaking, stage pictures." - Variety
