Auditions for Nursery Crimes by Greg Klein, Last Act Theatre Company, June 1 and 3 2013
Last Act Theatre Co. is seeking multiple actors of all ages and races for the premiere of their stylized crime noir, Nursery Crimes, and holding auditions over two days on Saturday, June 1, 10am – 2pm at the Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Rd (click for map )and on June 3, 6pm – 8:30pm at the Carver Library, 1165 Angelina (click for map ). Two audition times are available for actors that may have conflicts on either days. Callbacks will take place the following week, on June 8 and 10, same respective times.
Bo Peep has lost her sheep, and it’s up to Jack Horner to find them. While not his usual fare, Private Eye Jack Horner is a sucker for a damsel in distress. What seems like an open and shut case about a few missing sheep spirals into a world of deceit, murder, and mystery. Nursery Crimes features the gritty, underbelly versions of characters like Jack Horner, Bo Peep, and Humpty Dumpty that have no idea they are the subject of children’s poems.
Actors should bring a headshot and resume and come prepared with a one minute monologue.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve an audition slot.
Rehearsals will begin in late September. Nursery Crimes is a brand new play, so the script will be workshopped between now and September. Actors will have the chance to help define their characters as well as help refine the pacing and dialogue of the script. Actors should ideally be available for one rehearsal a week between now and September.
Nursery Crimes runs November 7th - 24th at the Dougherty Arts Center, and is written by Greg Klein and will be directed by Will Hollis Snider. Compensation may be provided. Details to be determined.
