Auditions for Almost, Maine on September 8 & 9
Kent State University at Stark Theatre has announced open auditions for the first theatrical production of the season, Almost, Maine, written by John Cariani and directed by Kent State Stark Assistant Professor of Theatre and Theatre Director Brian Newberg. Auditions are open to everyone, including students and community persons.
On a cold winter’s evening, under the magnetic magic of the northern lights, several couples in the sleepy, mythical town of Almost, Maine experience love’s joys and perils through a series of romantic, whimsical, unpredictable and often hilarious vignettes. Hearts are embraced, bruised, broken and mended – almost – leaving the people of this remote town forever changed.
Auditions will be held on September 8 and 9 at 6 p.m. in the theatre of the Fine Arts Building, 6000 Frank Avenue NW in Jackson Township.
Roles for this production are flexible. Male and female actors of various ages will be required to play multiple characters. No children. Those auditioning have the choice of working from sides (selected scene excerpts) or they may perform a prepared monologue. The director may also choose sides for people. For more information, visit www.kent.edu/stark/theatre-auditions. The production will be performed on November 13-15 and 20-22 in the Kent State Stark Theatre. Rehearsals commence on September 13 and will take place five evenings a week until opening.
Scripts (and audition sides or scene excerpts used for the auditions) are available for perusal for periods up to 24 hours from the secretary (330-244-5151) of the Fine Arts Building, Monday through Friday, during business hours (8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.). Audition appointments are recommended, but not required. Scripts and audition sides will also be available in the reserve area of the Stark Campus Library.
