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.

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.
