Auditions for the CPF-produced 5 plays for “NC 10 by 10: A Festival of 10-Minute Plays” will be held Tue May 29 and Wed May 30 at the Cary Arts Center (rm U40) 7-9pm! Check the above link for all the show details.
You (18+ age please) should come to only one evening. There are no appointment slots – if you must come late, try to get there by 45 minutes in. We will be reading actors in small groups (8 or so) and once your group has finished you are free to leave.
Bring your calendar and a resume and recent headshot if you have them. No monologues, just cold readings from script sides.
The 5 CPF-produced plays are:
- “CLOSET, THE” by Steffi Rubin, directed by Marina Enslen – 2 F (40) [sides: p2 and p3]
- “SOCKY TELLS ALL” by Rollin Jewett, directed by Nicola Lefler – 2 M (20, 40), 1 F (20) [sides: p2 for Andy & Nurse Todd and p8 for Andy & Dr. Baxter]
- “OL_JACK_SPOOKS_THE_DEVIL” by Ed Southern, directed by Fred Corlett – 2 M (20, 40), 1 M or F
- “PLEASE STAY” by Eric Weil, directed by Sean Malone – 1 F, 1 M or F [sides: pp5-7]
- “WHEN THE WOLFBANE BLOOMS” by Wim Coleman, directed by Thom Haynes – 1 F (40-60), 1 M (20) [sides: p4 (the ‘dream’ at top) for Sydney and p7 (until ‘eyes of fire’) for Prof Simmons]
The play titles link to the scripts, actors should read them beforehand – the links will be removed after auditions. Hardcopies of the scripts are in the Cary Arts Center Conference Room, you may access them during CAC open hours except when a meeting is occurring in there. Do NOT take a script out of the building.
The festival runs July Thu 19- Sun 22, 2018 at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro and July Thu 26- Sat 28, 2018 at The Cary Theatre in Cary. (For info on the Odyssey Stage production of THEIR half of the plays, click here. Their auditions were on May 12.)
Rehearsals will be arranged between the director and their cast. Expect 8 or so rehearsals before tech week (starts Jul 15), mostly in the Cary area.
Arriving early to sign up and fill out a form and conflict calendar is appreciated. Be very honest about your conflicts; we reserve the right to replace casted actors if significant new conflicts come up later. Here are links to the two docs, if you want to print and bring your filled-in forms: CALENDAR CONFLICTS, Audition Form
Actors will memorize lines, this isn’t a ‘reading’.
We will email or otherwise contact people we want to cast as soon as possible after day 2 of auditions. We’ll also post the cast on Facebook and to our web site.
Questions? Email producer Lydia Sbityakov <email@example.com>
