HOW TO GET THERE: Start at Jongno 5-ga Station. Go out Exit 2 and walk straight. You will pass the True Friend bank, a Paris Baguette, and a Dunkin Donuts. Keep walking to the next main intersection and cross the street in front of the large Church (연동교회). Go straight keeping the church on your left. At the next small side street (which is at about a 45 degree angle, with a CU on the corner) turn left. Head up the street. Walk about 100 meters, the theater will be on your left hand side. Go down the steps past the Dasarang Coffee House to the bottom of the stairs.
Please give yourself time to find the venue and plan on arriving around 10 minutes early. This will give you time to fill out an audition form so you can jump right in and get as many chances to read as possible during your 50 minute time slot.
If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to email us. The Birds is a very fun play and we're so excited to have a talented director on board for this production. We'd love to have you along for the journey!
