Casting Call for Alumnae Theatre’s FireWorks Festival 17!
This Will Be Our Last Transmission, November 8-12; Surrender, Dorothy, November 15-19; and GASH, November 22-26. Rehearsals begin on or before October 1.
THIS WILL BE OUR LAST TRANSMISSION by Natalie Frijia
Directed by Ara Glenn-Johanson
You can’t stop in the Death Zone. Above 8,000 meters, you’re already dying. When a storm traps three women, expert climbers, just below the summit of K2, they face a challenge even greater than climbing mountains: getting down. And the window is quickly closing.
*Notes: All characters in the play are professional mountain climbers. Therefore, the baseline for physical strength, focus, power, risk-taking, and defying the odds is very high for each of them. Actors of atypical types are encouraged to submit. This will be a physical show for the female characters so these actors must be physically strong, agile, and comfortable with heights.
SURRENDER, DOROTHY by Liz Best
Directed by Joan Burrows
Online dating’s been around for awhile. But it’s not something you’d ever consider, right? Until Ally, in her 50s, meets someone - online! She insists that her friends, all seasoned players in the relationship game, share her joy and her online experience. What follows is a hilarious, rueful, touching examination of the murky, ambush-laden search for connection, even love, as played out on the net. Snappy dialogue, penetrating insights as five clever women support each other in taking risks and learning to live again, even when your heart’s been broken.
GASH by Caitie Graham
Cata wakes up with an infected tattoo on her leg. When the memory of everyone involved is clouded by either drugs, denial, or desire, whose version of the truth is Cata supposed to believe? GASH is a fierce exploration of a young girl’s sexuality, an act of violence that devastates a friendship, and the question; can truth be subjective? A play about two high school kids adrift in a world they’re ill-equipped to navigate.
Auditions will be held from September 5 - 9 at the Alumnae Theatre, 70 Berkeley Street (at Adelaide). Callbacks with take place from September 12 - 13 and will be conducted separately for each play. Candidates selected to audition will be contacted.
