NEYT ANNOUNCES AUDITIONS FOR TWO 2014 SHOWS
All auditions take place at the New England Youth Theatre, 100 Flat
Street, Brattleboro, VT. 802-246-6398
TREASURE ISLAND: AUDITION Tuesday November 19, 2013 at 4:00 pm.
For 9 to 12 year old actors. Anyone who is interested, but unable to
attend the audition, is encouraged to contact director Peter Gould at
Peter Gould will hold an audition for his February production of "Treasure
Island". This will be an original, physical, high-energy interpretation
of the famous children's classic, in the same ensemble style as past Peter
Gould productions, such as "Ferdinand the Bull", "Robin Hood", and "The
Legend of Sleepy Hollow". We'll teach important Gould & Stearns style
physical comedy techniques and try out your own ideas for bringing this
great old pirate adventure to life. Please come to the audition ready to
present a one or two-minute monologue of your choice. Make it physical!
Peter's auditions are inclusive and non-threatening; we'll all participate
in a fun group warm-up of heart/mind/body/voice before we begin. See you
SHOW DETAILS: Treasure Island rehearsals begin Thursday Jan 2 and continue
each week on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00 pm-6:30 pm.
Performances will be Feb 7-16. Tuition is $425.00
MIDDLETOWN by Will Eno: AUDITION Saturday, December 21, 2013 at 1:00 pm.
For actors aged 13 to 19.
Director Micheal Trzos is searching for mature actors who crave a
challenge; this play confronts some of life's most fundamental unanswered
questions and we, the cast and crew of MIDDLETOWN, will work to explore
the Whys, Whats and Hows--the mysteries of life. It will require a lot of
mental and physical work from all involved, so please be motivated and
curious. For the audition, please prepare a one-minute comedic or dramatic
monologue (whatever shows you off the most) and bring an open mind and a
positive attitude. Auditions will be very relaxed--I just want to get to
know you. Having trouble finding a monologue? Look up these contemporary
playwrights for some help: David Bogosian, Wil Eno, Sarah Ruhl, Michael
Frayne, Martin McDonagh, Bert V. Royal, Alan Bennet, Tony Kushner, Tracy
Letts and any contemporary monologue book and/or Humana Festival Plays.
Looking forward to meeting and working with you!
Middletown rehearsals begin Monday February 24 and continue weekly on
Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00 pm-6:30 pm, with possible scene
work on Sundays. Performances are from April 10-19. Tuition: $425.
