Mature actors still needed for “Antigone” auditions

 Still seeking a few 40+ actors for roles in Alumnae Theatre Company’s upcoming production:


by Jean Anouilh adapted by Lewis Galantière
Directed by Janet Kish; Produced by Dahlia Katz

PERFORMANCES:                          September  18 – October 3, 2015.

Actors should be willing to explore Anouilh’s rich text through a collective journey of movement and experimentation.  The cast will be artistic collaborators throughout. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in either classical or physical theatre or both.

CREON – Male, 45 – 60, powerful, political and articulate.  Strong and confident in his own authority, intelligence and logic. Has a military aura with underlying humanity.

NURSE – Female, 40+, maternal and caring.  Warm-hearted, precocious and somewhat off the wall.

EURYDICE –  Female, 45 – 60, singer.   She knits throughout but never speaks. Must have strong singing voice as she will be part of our soundscape. In lieu of a monologue, actors auditioning for this role should present 1 minute of an a cappella song.

Applications are now closed for all other roles.

To request an audition, please send your resume, headshot and telephone number to: 
Ø  Please specify for which  character(s) you’re interested.
Ø  Candidates invited to audition will be contacted.
Ø  At the audition, you’ll be expected:
I.     to present a one-minute monologue (or song for the role of Eurydice) and,
II.     create an improvised movement piece with 3-4 other actors.

AUDITION DATES:                        Saturday, June 27 – Tuesday, June 30
CALL BACKS:                                     Saturday, July 4.
REHEARSALS:                                 July 12 – September 17.

Alumnae Theatre Company encourages diversity in its membership and casting. This is a non-paying engagement.
