We're having an open call for actors for And then there were none… by Agatha Christie. This is a classic mystery story: an odd group of characters has been invited to an island retreat by an unknown host. They die off one by one – whodunit? The cast features eight terrific men’s roles of all ages and three wonderful parts for women, two middle-aged and one to play mid-twenties. This play was pulled from production for years because of its earlier non-PC title, Ten Little Indians. Gilles will direct this show.
Auditions will be held in the O.J. Squffy Theater at Central School Project, 43 Howell Ave. in Old Bisbee on Saturday and Sunday, November 12 & 13, beginning at 1:00 each day.
Come prepared to deliver a one- to three-minute memorized monologue, not original work. We do need to know that you can memorize something, even a nursery rhyme. You will also read from the script. Rehearsals will be Thursday evenings and weekend afternoons through performance. Dress rehearsal and performance dates are scheduled for January 18-February 5, 2011. A copy of the script is available for reading at the Copper Queen Library. Actors may contact BOP at (520) 432-2901 or email@example.com for more information and to make arrangements for special audition appointments.
Director Rae Jones is also seeking one perfect male to play what may be the sweetest men’s role ever, the ghost of John Barrymore, in the hilarious comedy, I Hate Hamlet, by Paul Rudnick. The ideal candidate will have good movement skills and a big voice. To join our all-star Bisbee cast, contact Rae at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 520-432-2901 right away to schedule an audition. Rehearsals for I Hate Hamlet will be selected evenings and weekend afternoons February into April, with performances scheduled April 12-29. A script is available for reading at the Copper Queen Library.
