PREPARATION
You are not required to prepare anything in particular. Monologues are welcome if you have one. Otherwise, you will be asked to read from sections of the play; excerpts will be provided.  

As Gatsby is set in the 1920s and we will be trying to capture that feeling, if you know any dances from that era (Charleston, Lindy, swing, or even waltz), please come ready to dance a quick excerpt.  By the same token, if you know a song from that time period, there will be an opportunity for you to sing.

Scripts will be available for sign-out in the FTT office, 230 DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, at the beginning of the spring semester.
