Bisbee's Obscure Productions auditions for "Agnes of God"

From the Sierra Vista Herald:


Aug. 2-3 Bisbee’s Obscure Productions will be holding auditions for “Agnes of God” by John Pielmeier on Aug. 2 and 3 at the Squffy Theater at Central School Project, 43 Howell Ave., in Old Bisbee. Auditions are from 2 to 5 p.m. both days, or actors may schedule an audition appointment. 

This challenging play revolves around a novice nun, Sister Agnes, who has given birth. The infant’s corpse was found in a wastebasket. Dr. Livingstone, a psychiatrist, must decide Agnes’s sanity. The Mother Superior tries to shield young Agnes from the doctor. Who fathered, and who killed the baby? All three women must look more deeply at how each defines faith and love. A copy of the script is available for actors to read at the Copper Queen Library. 

BOP is seeking three strong women for the roles. Agnes is a young adult or someone who can play young on stage. Some singing experience (soprano) is necessary for this role. Dr. Livingstone is middle-aged to older, must be willing to smoke fake cigarettes or nicotine alternatives. Mother Miriam is older. Actors are asked to come prepared for auditions with a one- to two-minute memorized monologue. They will also do cold readings from the script. 

Rehearsals for “Agnes of God” will be on Saturdays and Sunday afternoons and Monday and Wednesday evenings through Oct. 2. Performances will be Oct. 3 – 12, evenings and matinees. Contact Elizabeth Henley at 234-8891 or at for information and audition appointments.
