Auditions for "Medea'
You know, I thought I was going to hold the record for directing the oldest show produced locally this year with the 400-year-old A Midsummer Night's Dream - but ARTS has me beat, as they prepare to produce the 1600-year-old Medea!
Auditions for the show are coming up on Saturday, June 27 at 10 a.m. Here's the information about the show:
The ARTS production of Medea by A. E. Gill (Ash Gill) after Euripides is seeking female chorus members and a male actor for the principal role of Aegus and two male children (ages 10-12).
This is a movement heavy production with a huge emphasis on the female chorus. There is no need to prepare a monologue or song, simply bring yourself in your most comfortable clothing. This audition will be very informal and casual, so don't be intimidated, it will be a good time!
Rehearsal Schedule: July 6 - Aug. 13 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Performances: Aug. 14, 15, 21, 22, 28 & 29

The plot centers on the actions of Medea, a barbarian and the wife of Jason, she finds her position in the Greek world threatened as Jason leaves her for a Greek princess of Corinth. Medea takes vengeance on Jason by killing Jason's new wife as well as her own children with him, after which she escapes to Athens to start a new life.
