The Community Players, Tucson's premier community theatre company is holding open auditions for its final show of the season. It is a very special show, our Second Annual New One Act Play Festival, which highlights three playwrights from Arizona. The writers submitted a new, unpublished, unproduced one act play which was then scored by a panel of judges and the top three are awarded the first prize of having their play staged as a full production. The winning playwrights this year are Vince Flynn for his play "Dealing With It", Carl Damhesel for his play "A Good Cradle Doesn't Wobble", and Richard Thompson for his play "Last Call".
Auditions are being held this Wednesday and Thursday May 31 and June 1 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at The Community Playhouse, 1881 N. Oracle Road. You should come prepared to do cold readings from the script. Sides will be provided upon arrival. It is possible that you will be asked to read by more than one director.
Character breakdowns for each play are as follows:
Dealing With It – 1 female 30-40 strong lead with wide emotional range
1 female 20-30 fresh out of college, not too bright
A Good Cradle Doesn't Wobble – 2 females 20-30, one well dressed, severe business like, the other is more comfortable, casual mix and match look
1 male 20-30, relaxed and easy going
Last Call – 1 male 30-40, slick, fashionable, confident, all business, cold and uncaring
1 male 50-60, heavy set and balding, used car salesman look
The Second Annual New One Act Play Festival will run July 14-30 with shows on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 and Sunday matinees at 2:00. Rehearsals will start immediately with the director for each to determine what nights and times work best for each cast. Each play will be rehearsed separately until tech week and then will be rehearsed as they will be presented. This is a great opportunity for our very talented writers to have their work produced and finally see their hard work rewarded. It is also a great opportunity for actors to be a part of the world premiere of these plays and to get to know a group of individuals who create the need to have actors. Let's support all areas of the arts and help make the world premiere of these three plays everything these playwrights could have imagined.
