VUTC are proud to announce their first audition for 2015 will kick off on Wednesday, the 11th of March! The one-act play is titled Christmas in July, and features a dysfunctional family dinner celebrating a non-existent holiday.
The auditions will be held at 6:30pm in room E100, which is on Level 1 of Building E at Victoria University’s Footscray Park campus. All Victoria University students are welcome to attend.
