Auditions for Fall plays: "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde," "The Transdimensional Couriers Union," and "Arsenic & Old Lace"
Thursday, September 06, 2012 3:30 PM

Auditions for the fall season are here!

Here’s what we’ve got lined up:

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher

a senior project directed by Emmet Kowler -- 4M, 2W (flexible)
A new and shocking version of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of depravity, lust, love and horror. On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll's experiments with exotic "powders and tinctures" have brought forth his other self -- Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the two sides battle each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall be the master and who his slave. With multiple Hydes portrayed by members of the cast.

The Transdimensional Couriers Union, by John Heimbuch
directed by Justin Alexander -- 3M, 3W, plus minor roles
It turns out the world does end in 2012, but we do it to ourselves. In the very near future / very recent past, we perfect a time travel device that works like a mobile phone: activate the handheld device and you can travel to any active receiver on the Impulse network... at any time during the existence of that receiver. The world instantly collapses as time travelers from the future invade the present. The economy crashes. Wars of future present break out across the globe. Total chaos. Out of this chaos of paradox and eternal revision, the Transdimensional Couriers Union imposes order: They make transtemporal deliveries while enforcing post-modern causality through a complex tracking program. The play is a nonlinear tour de force of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey awesomeness.

Arsenic & Old Lace, by Joseph Kesselring
a senior project directed by Brianna McCurry -- 11M, 3W (flexible)
We meet the charming and innocent ladies who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously "acceptable" roomers; the antics of their brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and the activities of the other brother—these require no further description or amplification here.

No experience is necessary! Bring one friend, or a few! Just mosey on over to the auditorium (the tech room door by the vending machines) right after school.

Callbacks will be September 7th.
