The show will be Mar 4-6 2016, in the Cary Arts Center ‘Paul Cooper’ room. It is a co-production of an English translation (by a Morrisville NC woman Dr. Vijaya Bapat, based on Vidyadahr Pundalik’s script) of a 40-minute one-act about revenge and forgiveness based on the Indian epic Mahabharata; will include live classical Indian music and puppetry. It will be paired with related episodes from the Indian epic presented as shadow theatre. There will be a workshop for cast and crew with a Paperhand Puppet Intervention instructor at his studio.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Marathi language program in Morrisville that was co-founded by the translator. Director: Lydia Sbityakov. Producers: Vijaya Bapat & Lydia Sbityakov (email@example.com).
Auditions will be cold readings from the scripts. Actors may perform a monologue but this is not required. Bring your calendars! You may print/fill out forms beforehand if desired: conflict calendar, audition form.
Scripts are now available in the Cary Arts Center conference room (floor 2)! These may not be taken out of the building.
