Theater Auditions in Maryland for “Shipwrecked!”

01/28/2020

Shipwrecked! An Entertainment at Greenbelt Arts Center

Location: Greenbelt, MD area

Type: Theater

International clown performer, teaching artist, and director Mike Funt is happy to announce open auditions for The Clown School East’s premier production. Shipwrecked! tells the grand tale of a famous adventurer who gets lost on the high seas and ends up seeing fantastic things and meeting exotic people. The audience is whisked away from England to the exotic lands of Aboriginal Australia and back again in a story populated by exotic islanders, flying wombats, giant sea turtles and a monstrous man-eating octopus. He is aided by two highly talented players, who play all of the people (and animals) he meets along the way. However, all might not be as it seems…Shipwrecked! brings the joy of storytelling alive, and questions whether a story being real or fabricated makes the journey any less treasured.

Auditions will be held at the Greenbelt Community Center, located at 15 Crescent Road, Greenbelt MD, 20770, on Sunday, February 2, between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. and on Monday, February 3, between 7:00 and 10:00 p.m.

Please prepare a one-minute monologue that shows versatility in voice and physicality. Auditions will consist of prepared monologues, readings from the script, and a short improvisation. Email the director, Mike Funt, at mikefunt@hotmail.com, for more information.

Rehearsals will be held 3-4 nights each week, starting at 7 p.m. to start and 5 nights the final dress week, leading up to 6 performances beginning on March 20 and ending on March 29. Friday and Saturday performances have an 8 p.m. curtain, and Sunday matinees will have a 2 p.m. curtain. Be prepared at auditions to detail all conflicts you may have throughout the rehearsal and performance schedule.

Performers will be paid a $100 stipend at the end of the run
