Auditions for "Toad Wife"

   Auditions are coming up this weekend for the play Toad Wife.

   Here are the details:

   Appalachian Artist's Collective (AAC) will host auditions at The Alban Theatre on July 8 from noon to 2 p.m. for the 2017 Summer Project Toad Wife by A.E. Gill at the St Albans City Park Amphitheater. 

   We're seeking actors ages 18 and above (please prepare a memorized, 1 minute monologue and feel free to contact us if you'd like some guidance regarding monologue choices) for this world premier production which chronicles the journey of twin sisters, Hazel and Odessa, as they battle and befriend fantastical creatures in the deep, dark swamp below the mountains. Set in Appalachia and utilizing regional dialects, Toad Wife draws inspiration from Southern West Virginia folktales and will be AAC's first Theatre for Young Audiences performance. 


*AAC actors and company members ar
e compensated for their work based upon a percentage of profits to be agreed upon by the company. 

*Additionally, actors and company members are expected to take on more than one job; our actors and technicians double as deck crew, make up artists, seamstresses, carpenters, etc. etc. Everything we create is designed and constructed by our artists and technicians, we do not rent costumes or sets.
