Announcing auditions for BETA BLOCKERS, an evening of five new short plays written by Madison’s Ned O’Reilly, author of the recent Mercury Players Theatre production WIDESCREEN.
WHEN: Friday, January 9, 7 p.m.
WHERE: First Baptist Church, 518 N Franklin Ave, Madison, Room 305
WHAT: Auditioners will read from the scripts; no prepared material necessary.
Directors Bri Baltes, Benjamin Barlow, Jason Compton, Sara Beth Hahner, and Francisco Torres will cast 8-10 people in roles of various ages.
The plays are all contemporarily set and feature vulnerable, but humorous characters ranging in age from 20-something to 50. We are particularly in need of a 30+ actress to handle some adult material.
IMPORTANT: This is a festival piece, designed to travel to Chicago’s Prop Thtr on February 14th and 15th for two performances in the 26th Annual Rhinoceros Theatre Festival ( http://rhinofest.com/ ) , curated and produced by Curious Theatre Branch. There will also be Madison performances February 13th and 18th.
