Class, money and reputation are all at stake in one way or another for the passengers and before they know it deceit, theft and murder quickly make waves on the river. Spurned lover Jacqueline De Severac, protective uncle Canon Pennefather, a troubled German Doctor, and a host of colorful and mysterious characters add to the drama and suspense of this classic Agatha Christie mystery. Who can be trusted? Who holds the truth? Who is a suspect? Whodunit?

Arizona Rose Theatre continuing auditions for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) (Revised)


From: Arizona Rose Theatre <>
Sent: Thursday, May 16, 2019 11:15 AM







Arizona Rose Theatre will continue with open auditions on May 20 for 

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) (Revised), to run

 for nine performances between Feb. 29 and March 15, 2020. 

Complete Works is a hilarious riff on Shakespeare, theater, world events, 

and virtually everything in life that can bring laughter, with extended 

"outtakes" from Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet, and variously shorter stops 

at all of the Bard's 35 other plays. Complete Works has

played to critical and audience success across the world.


The play is generally presented with a cast of 3, usually but not necessarily male.

What it needs, most importantly, are quick-witted and facile actors who can go

seamlessly from character to character, mood to mood, memorized lines to improv,

and interact spontaneously with the other cast members and the audience.

Familiarity with Shakespeare and the ability to deliver clear sounding iambic

pentameter in a British dialect is helpful but not mandatory. So is the ability to do

farce and go "over the top" when called for. Also of interest are special talents like

juggling, walking on your hands, playing the kazoo, or speaking in dialects, all of

which can be woven into the performance.


Because of the substantial rehearsal commitment (roughly 8 weeks), Arizona Rose

will be offering competitive stipends to the cast, and has committed to first rate

production values for costumes, set, tech and props.


The audition will take place Monday May 20 from 6-9 pm, at the Arizona Rose

theater which is in the Tucson Mall, just behind the Container Store. Please bring a

hard copy resume and head shot. Actors are encouraged to remain for the entire 3

hour block so that we can see everyone in different roles and different possible

configurations of the cast.


No roles have been pre-cast or promised, and in part the final selections will be

based on a cast that fits together best in an overall way to do the work justice —

not just three great actors but a terrific ensemble. There may be callbacks. Our goal

is to have a complete cast by early June, get scripts out over the summer, and move

into rehearsals right after New Year's.


Mark Klugheit will direct. Please email mail to notify us

that you will be participating, or with any questions. Sides are now available from

the director at

12 Westerns Casting Call Announcement: Tucson – May 18th – A Guide To Gunfighters of the Wild West

We are excited to announce the casting call for one of our 12 Western feature films, A GUIDE TO GUNFIGHTERS OF THE WILD WEST, scheduled to start production in March/April 2020. The film is written by Wendy Memoli and will be produced/directed by Travis Mills.


An open casting call will take place May 18th at Film Actor Workshops in Tucson from 10am to 6pm. Parking at this venue is limited. Please be prepared to park across the street. Here is the address: 1111 N Main Ave, Tucson, AZ 85705

Please make special note of these instructions:


·         There are no appointments; this is a first come, first served casting call. We will see as many people as possible 10am to 6pm.

·         No video auditions are NOT accepted at this time. You must show up in person on May 18th to audition.

·         The sides/scenes for the characters are included below each description as hyperlinks to download PDFs. If I have included more than one scene for a character, please learn ALL of them. For example, anyone auditioning for Tate (the lead role) should prepare all three scenes.

Ballet Tucson


BT2 - Ballet Tucson's exceptional youth ballet presents its end-of-season concert on Sunday, June 9 at 2:00 pm at the Stevie Eller Dance Theatre on the campus of the University of Arizona.
The highlight of the program is Paquita faithfully staged by Assistant Artistic Director Chieko Imada.  This cornerstone of the classical ballet repertoire displays Spanish-style dance-infused with bold expression, technical virtuosity, and spirited music by Ludwig Minkus.
Mozart Mélange (premiere) is an embodiment of a bourgeois era in which games, gossip, and grace encompassed the indulgent Rococo style of European high society.  This piece reflects back on the aristocratic culture that gave birth to ballet in the royal courts through the genius works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and transports us to a time of exuberance and beauty.
In Studio A – Former Ballet Tucson Principal Dancer Benjamin Tucker creates a new work for our advanced dancers.  This informal and seemingly "spur of the moment" choreography incorporates partnering work and movement that highlights each cast member as a unique artist.
Patchwork is a series of American inspired dances.  From cowboy, folk music, and bluegrass genres to Latin and Hawaiian offerings, dances are presented to represent our "melting pot culture" in a celebratory and joyous way.  Choreography is by Mary Beth Cabana , Chieko Imada, and Daniel Precup, with staging by faculty member Michelle Alexander.  The piece is performed in simple costumes and accessories and aims to capture our American sense of pride and diversity.

Performance Date/Time:
