Open Auditions on September 6 for ‘Private Eyes’ Production
Published on: August 24, 2011
Lone Star College-Montgomery’s Center for the Arts is calling college students and community members to audition for the college’s fall production of Private Eyes, on Tuesday, September 6, at 4 p.m., on the mainstage theatre (Building D).
Those auditioning should prepare and memorize a contemporary monologue, comic or dramatic, 45-60 seconds in length. Callbacks will be Wednesday, September 7, at 4 p.m., in the same location and will consist of a cold read.
Those selected for the cast and crew must enroll in Drama 1120 (Theatre Practicum). This production is also participating in the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival, and all cast and crew members will need to be available to travel with the production to San Jacinto College South October 19-22.
Private Eyes, by Steven Dietz, is a comedy of suspicion in which nothing is ever quite what it seems. The story is brought in multiple layers, and the audience is repeatedly tricked to believe that the current situation is real. The audience itself plays the role of detective in this hilarious "relationship thriller" about love, lust and the power of deception.
Performance dates are scheduled for Thursday, October 13, through Saturday, October 15, at 7:30 p.m.; and Saturday, October 15, at 2 p.m. Plus, on Wednesday, October 12, there will be a preview free of charge for all LSC-Montgomery faculty, staff and students, and only $5 for the public.
Individual tickets for this performance are $10 (general admission), $7 (seniors), and $5 (students). Tickets can be purchased at www.mycommunityevents.com.
