Auditions for our Annual Series of Short Plays will be held Monday April 21 & Tuesday April 21 from 7:30-9pm at Dancers’ Workshop in the Center for the Arts. 

Join us for Auditions!  Everyone welcome!

April 21st and 22nd Riot Act, Inc. will be holding auditions for its Annual Series of Short Plays.

Annual Series of Shorts includes 3 plays with 3 different directors.  The performances will run in Dancers’ Workshop Studio 1 June 12-14.  Actors will work with individual directors to schedule rehearsal times.

This year, all three plays are the winners from our First Annual New Play Festival.  You will also have the opportunity to work with the playwrights during rehearsals.

Shorts Play descriptions:

Ezekiel, by Betsy & Eve Bernfeld, directed by Henry Raynor Williams.  The characters are:  Zeke, a geeky college student; Marcia, a young hip yoga instructor; Stewardess/Waitress/Intercom Voice; and 3 bicyclists/tap dancers/crocodiles.  The play is a surreal look at an apocalypse.  Henry would like people comfortable with physicality, as he plans to incorporate some choreography.

Point of Rocks by Caryn Flanagan will be directed by the playwright.  The characters are:  Darrell horn Jr., a WY native and diesel mechanic for an oil company (30s-40s); Shelly, Darrell’s step-sister who has lived a hard life (30s); Mitchell, a family friend (30s-40s); Elsa, Michell’s mother (60s); and a Trucker (40s).  The play is gritty with a hard look at rural life.  Shelly comes to visit after her step-father, Darrell’s father, passes away.  They are trying to figure out what he did with all his money.

Floral Deliveries by Marilynn Barner Anselmi, directed by Luis Guerrero.  The characters are:  Tw Hardy, a dying man on home care hospice (80s); Ruby Hardy, Tw’s wife and spunky (80s); Ted, home health care nurse (30s-50s); Joan, Episcopal Priest (30s-50s); and Floral Delivery person (adult).  The play follows a day in the life of the Hardys as Tw is dying at home.  They debate whether to tell each other long past secrets from their life together.
