Auditions in San Antonio for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Overtime Theatre, December 12 and 14
Oh, we're ready to kick off 2013, people!!!!
Auditions for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, A Staged, Silent Adaptation by Sophia Bolles directed by Seth Larson, Wednesday, Dec. 12, 6-9 PM. Callbacks Friday, Dec. 14, 4-6:30 PM.
This "silent theater" adaptation of the 1920 German expressionist film,arguably the first horror movie, follows a story told by a tortured young man, Francis. The mysterious Dr.Caligari happens upon the town of Holstenwall during itʼs annual fair. After Dr. Caligari presents his “somnambulist”, Cesare, an otherworldyman who has spent his entire life asleep, a suspicious string of murders sets the town on edge. FIlled with shadows, warped scenery, and bizarrely slanted scenes ranging from the fairgrounds to a madhouse, this staged classic film is haunting, beautiful, moody and absurd.
Roles: Old Man; Francis; Jane; Dr. Caligari; Alan; Cesare; Old Woman; Dr. Olsen; Murderer; Chorus (Clerks/Policemen/Doctors)
