Auditions for Arcadia at the Greenbelt Arts Center, Dec 5 & 6

Greenbelt Arts Center announces auditions for:
Arcadia
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Randy Barth

Auditions: December 5 & 6, 2023

Performances: March 3 – 18, 2023

Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia has won awards and accolades ever since its first appearance in 1993. It is set in an English country house, and takes place in both early 1800s and the present day in 2000. There scholars debate the relationships between past and present, order and disorder, and certainty and uncertainty. The (often inaccurate) sleuthing of the modern researchers is contrasted with those who lived there before and provide both comedy and drama. And indeed, there are scandals, both academic and personal, that keeps the plot shifting. It presents a rich combination of farcical elements, clever wordplay, and omens of a dark future.

by Arthur Miller
Directed By John Cusumano
Assistant Directed By Michael and Megan Safko

Performances: June 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 2023

Eddie Carbone is devoted to his wife Beatrice and his niece Catherine. When Beatrice’s cousins Marco and Rodolpho enter the US illegally, desperate to find work having fled the poverty of Sicily, the pair is welcomed into the Carbone home. But as Rodolpho and Catherine fall in love, Eddie’s adoration of his niece is no longer touching, but terrifying. Simmering with jealousy and obsession, Italian-American immigrant life of 1950s Brooklyn colours Miller’s searing drama of tragic proportions. The universal story of family, immigration and justice cuts deeply.
