Greenbelt Arts Center announces auditions for:

Almost, Maine
Directed by Bob Kleinberg
October 16 & 17, 2017.

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. In this whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance, knees are bruised, hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Almost, Maine is comprised of 8 vignettes about love and the various emotions that can accompany it. These vignettes involve the various townspeople of the imaginary town of Almost, Maine, located in the wide open spaces of northern Maine, near Canada.

There are no specific characters to describe. This is an ensemble cast, and each cast member will play at least two separate roles. No accents please.

We are looking for 4 men and 4 women in their 30’s and 40’s to play the townspeople of Almost, Maine. Note: All roles are non-union and unpaid.

The show will be performed 4 weekends from January 26 – February 17, Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM and Sunday matinees at 2PM at the Greenbelt Arts Center.

For more information, please contact director Bob Kleinberg at bob.kleinberg@gmail.com, or see http://www.greenbeltartscenter.org/Default.asp#audition

Auditions for Frankenstein by the Bowie Community Theatre, Nov 6 & 7

Bowie Community Theatre announces auditions for “Frankenstein” adapted from novel by Mary Shelley and directed by Brian Douglas. Auditions will be held on Monday, November 6, and Tuesday, November 7, from 7:00pm – 9:30pm at the Bowie Playhouse, 16500 White Marsh Park Dr. in Bowie MD.

Auditions November 6 & 7, 2017.

NOTICE: This production contains scenes which simulate intense violence and death, with victims that include women, a young boy, and a dog. Please give due consideration to this before agreeing to participate.

Location: Bowie Community Theatre at the Bowie Playhouse

Performances March 9 – 25, 2018.

Set in nineteenth-century Switzerland, this classic tale of horror and suspense details the ill-fated experiments of young Dr. Frankenstein as he attempts to fathom the secrets of life and death. Purchasing cadavers from two unsavory grave robbers, he gives life to a creature both hideous and touching—and so physically powerful and mentally twisted that he soon brings death or destruction to all who stand in his way. Adhering more closely to the original novel than did the famous motion picture versions, the play blends moments of brooding terror and sudden shock with questions of morality and the dangers of unrestrained scientific inquiry.

Actors will be grouped together and will read from sides. No monologue is required, but if you wish to do one, please keep it under two minutes. A headshot and resume are helpful but not required. Everyone’s photo will be taken at the audition. Please come prepared with a list of ALL possible conflicts between 11/13/2017 and 3/7/2018, including Christmas and other holidays. We must schedule rehearsals during a very busy time of year. Actors must be available for all performances. The play runs weekends from March 9 through March 25. Please contact the director at bdsomega@yahoo.com for further questions.
