Auditions for Breathe, Directed by Dr. Freda Scott Giles

Breathe debuts virtually in November 2020

Breathe is a multimedia, multifaceted work being developed by Angela Hall under the direction of Emeritus UGA Faculty member Dr. Freda Scott Giles. Through tweets, news articles, and first-hand accounts, Breathe contends with our current American moment – focusing on social and political upheaval with an emphasis on action and “good trouble.” This unique, original experience will see its development influenced by both its writer and the cast, responding in real time to the events that surround us daily.

Breathe will be pre-recorded, edited, and streamed, and will be rehearsed and recorded using strict social distancing. Auditions are open to all students, including those with accommodations for remote instruction.


Deadline to submit form and video link: August 27 by 6:00pm (details and form link below)




Saturday, August 29: Will receive link from graduate assigned to help production team. 

Breathe Performance Dates: Nov 5–9 and 11–13 (Virtual)
