Dear friends!


We have such exciting news!  We just found out that The Rogue Theatre has been chosen as one of ten theatre companies nationwide to receive the National Theatre Company Award from the American Theatre Wing.

 

   

The American Theatre Wing is best known as being the Founder of the Tony Awards.  Three years ago, they began this award program to recognize outstanding emerging theatre companies across the country.  It comes with a $10,000 award for operating expenses and considerable prestige.  The award is made to 10 companies from all over the U.S. who "have articulated a distinctive mission, cultivated an audience, and nurtured a community of artists in ways that strengthen and demonstrate the quality, diversity, and dynamism of American theatre."


None of this would be possible without you.  Thank you for your enthusiastic support and for being such a valuable part of The Rogue.

Casting Call, One Hundred Blooms feature length drama - paid

Feature Length Drama (Tucson)


Date: 2012-08-30, 9:29PM MST
Reply to qwndk-3240780680@gigs.craigslist.org


 

One Hundred Blooms is a feature length drama to be shot in Tucson with shooting beginning in mid October.

One Hundred Blooms is a story about Amanda, a successful lawyer who is modestly unsatisfied in her marriage to Kenneth, a successful real estate developer. Amanda has two adult daughters. Her older daughter, Susan, is also an attorney. Her younger daughter, Jennifer, is about to enter college. Amanda got married when she got pregnant with Susan and eventually got pregnant with Jennifer when she thought she was no longer fertile. As Amanda explained -- two mistakes -- one that began her marriage and one that seemed to mark the end of it.

Amanda and Kenneth are not hostile -- but distant. Susan worries how much she is like her mother and seems to want to help her as if to guide her own future. When the film opens, Susan and her mother are attempting to work through Amanda's apparent drinking problem. While Amanda's drinking didn't affect her work, it arguable was the cause of the malaise that seemed to envelope her personal life. 

However this assessment is interrupted when Jennifer (Amanda's youngest daughter) takes her own life -- leaving no note or explanation. Instead of despair, Amanda reacts to Jennifer's suicide with anger. To Amanda, Jennifer's lack of explanation seemed to be putting the blame on her. And in Amanda's mind, if Jennifer did blame Amanda, she should of least had the decency to make her claim expressly.

After the loss of Jennifer, Amanda struggles with how she wants to go forward with her life, and the film parallels Amanda's search for a satisfying resolution.

This project is non-union. We will be auditioning on Saturday September 8 with times as necessary to accommodate all qualified applicants.

We are casting for the four leading roles: Amanda, Kenneth, Susan and Jennifer. We are open regarding ethnicity, but the demographics of the actors to be selected are obviously interconnected. We presume that Amanda and Kenneth are approximately 50-65, that Susan is approximately 35 - 45, and that Jennifer is approximately 18 to 25. We are paying Amanda a flat fee of $2,000, Susan a flat fee of $1,500, and Kenneth and Jennifer each a flat fee of $1,000. All actors will be paid 50% pro rata with progression of the shooting and 50% on completion.
If you are interested in auditioning for one of these four roles, please provide a current headshot and resume and identify your actual age (not the range of ages that you are open to portraying). We are open to retaining actors from outside the Tucson area, but will not accept video in lieu of auditions for the four leading roles. Supplemental photographs and video are always welcome (but not required).

There are four substantive minor roles (that we are not casting for at this time) each of which we will pay a flat fee of $500. If you are interested in One Hundred Blooms, but are not interested in auditioning for one of the four leading roles, feel free to provide us your name and e-mail address and we will contact you when we are ready to audition for the remaining roles.

Tucson, Arizona--Pima Community College Theatre Arts launches the 2012-2013 season with the warm and humorous family production, THE JUNGLE BOOK adapted by Joseph Robinette, based on the book by Rudyard Kipling. Directed by Mickey Nugent. Public performances are Fri. and Sat. at 7 p.m.; Sat. and Sun. at 2 p.m. ASL interpreters are available Oct. 5. Tickets are $6. Jungle Jamboree, a free community event for families, features activities, treats and scenes from the play Sat., September 22 from 9-11 a.m. in the Black Box Theatre.

 

Narrated by the young Rudyard Kipling, Mowgli and Shere Khan’s thrilling story is brought to life on stage set against the backdrop of Kipling’s actual childhood journey from his home in Bombay to a British boarding school. Though young Kipling’s new classmates tease him for being different, his teachers are kind and encourage him to write. His story of Mowgli, the Indian boy raised by caring wolves in the jungles of India with Bagheera, the panther, Baloo, the bear and the menacing tiger Shere Kahn, parallels his struggles with the troublesome rivals at school. Along the way both young Rudyard and Mowgli learn lessons of strength and understanding. The play touches on the subject of school bullying, the worth of friendship, the importance of loyalty and other values required for surviving in the jungle. The fast-paced nonstop action, colorful jungle scenery and plenty of energetic animals are sure to keep the younger audiences enthralled and the older audience connected. Director Nugent exclaims, “I can not wait to bring THE JUNGLE BOOK alive onstage here at Pima. It'ssuch an exciting tale to tell! The themes of family awareness and working to help one another to prevent mean spiritedness, demonstrates hope for making the world accept tolerance. I can not wait!”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

ZUZI! Dance Company celebrates the life of Frida Kahlo Mexican artist, with choreography by ZUZI! CoFounder and Artistic Director, Nanette Robinson.  Featured dance company members:  Ekida Sarang Laurie, Karyn Reim, Kali Lucey, Lauryn Bianco, Felice Espinosa, Carie Schneider, Jamey Garner, Sky Dominquez and youth company member Frieda Muller.

This concert travels through Frida Kahlo’s richly diverse and controversial life with visual arts, modern and aerial dance, spoken word and live music.  The ZUZI! House Band performs live, featuring Pablo Peregrina, Sally Withers, Bubba Fass, Randy Omdahl and Bobby Ronstadt. Special guest artist Barbara Schuessler, La Flamencista, has collaborated with Nanette on a dance inspired by flamenco and gypsy dance. Also, special guest artists Ballet Folklorico La Paloma will perform.

 

There will be a reception following the opening night performance, allowing for the audience to meet the dancers and artists over drinks and appetizers.

  

Frida Kahlo de Rivera (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954) Kahlo's life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home known as the Blue House. At the age of six, Frida developed polio.  At the age of 18 she suffered a traumatic trolley car accident that changed the course of her life forever. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.  Her work has also been described by AndrĂ© Breton, principal initiator of the surrealist movement, as "a ribbon around a bomb".

EL RIO THEATRE PROJECT PRESENTS:

"THE TAMING OF THE SHREW"

by William Shakespeare

 

 

The El Rio Theatre Project will present its 6th annual Shakespeare in the Park with William Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew" at the Himmel Park Outdoor Amphitheater, 1000 N. Tucson Blvd.  Performances are scheduled for Sept 21-23, 27-30 & Oct. 4-7.  Curtain time is 7 p.m. for all performances; the event is free to the public, with a suggested donation of $5.  Bring a blanket, a picnic basket and the whole family, and enjoy an evening of Theatre in the park.

 

Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew is the quintessential battle-of-the-sexes comedy!  Baptista has two daughters that need to be married off - Bianca; docile, beautiful and much sought after by the noble men of the town, and Katherine; ill-tempered and shrewish, with an acid tongue that no man can tame. As the oldest, Katherine must marry first - not that she much cares. Bianca's many suitors can't afford to wait, so in a wild scheme to find a husband for Katherine, they convince the wily Petruchio to take on the challenge of domesticating the willful "shrew." Can Petruchio subdue Katherine's temper and win her bountiful dowry, or will she continue her shrewish ways?
