Auditions for Twelve Angry Women at Greenbelt Arts Center, May 23-24

Auditions for Twelve Angry Women at Greenbelt Arts Center, May 23-24

The Rude Mechanicals in residence at the Greenbelt Arts Center announces auditions for:
Twelve Angry Women
by Reginald Rose
stage version by Sherman L. Sergel

Auditions May 23 & 24, 2022 at 8pm
Auditions and performance will be live in person

By Greenbelt Arts Center, In Person.

Callbacks will be 8-10PM Thu May 26. Actors may be cast without being called back. Auditions will consist of a monologue you may prepare or select from one of ours. Please bring proof of vaccination.

The Rude Mechanicals’ next live show at the Greenbelt Arts Center! “Twelve Angry Women,” by Reginald Rose, stage version by Sherman L. Sergel, produced by special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois, both tells a story and examines our society. The story is straightforward: twelve strangers must vote guilty or not guilty to decide the future of a young man charged with the murder of his father. Their verdict must be unanimous. The drama is played out in a claustrophobic jury room during an unbearable hot summer day. The environment is a crucible—a vessel that purifies through fire. Each of the jurors is forced to face herself—her life experiences, prejudices, personalities, and biases. Herein lies the ever-ascending drama of the play—the conflicts of every jury member within herself and with her fellow jurors as they examine the evidence.

Tartuffe, presented by MAD, Apr 30, Online

Tartuffe, presented by MAD, Apr 30, Online

Goddard’s Music and Drama Club presents:
An online public reading of:
Tartuffe
By Molière
Directed by Randy Barth

Saturday, April 30, 2022, 8pm, live online

Location: Goddard Space Flight Center’s MAD Theater, online.

Molière was a poet and Tartuffe was written in verse in French. We will use the English translation available at Project Gutenberg which is also in verse. This will be an interesting departure for us from past works, though when you think about it, it is somewhat like musical theater. It will be a new challenge but once again our goal is to have fun participating.

Performance will be live online. Click here.
