Audition Announcement

Live audio-theatre (a la old time radio) production of an original adaptation of Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land

AUDITIONS: SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2009 2-5pm in Chicago, IL

The auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

Looking for 6 men and 4 women - some for single roles, but most to take on multiple roles. Vocal flexibility and characterization and smooth reading are key - lines are READ, not memorized.  It is a full length show - 2 hours including intermission. The initial plan is that this will be performed at the Chicago Polyamory Conference www.chipolycon.org on Saturday, March 28, 2009 I must be up front with everyone.  There is a chance that the convention will be canceled  (HINT HINT - SIGN UP NOW IF YOU DON'T WANT THE CONFERENCE CANCELED!)  The decision will be made at the end of February.   Should the conference be canceled, however, I plan to talk with the folks with the Heinlein Trust (who granted permission for the performance) asking for permission for a change of venue so we could still produce the play. I promise not to have more than 3 rehearsals (probably 2) before the fate of the show is determined.  Unfortunately, unless I have auditions and start rehearsals soon, we will not have long enough time to put the show together. Please blip me off an email (kzoegraham/at/gmail/dot/com)  to let me know if you wish to audition and I will send you the address. Also let me know if you want to audition but cannot make the audition time indicated.  Let me know if you have any questions about the production.  Thanks. AND PLEASE, PLEASE - feel free to forward this to anyone else you think might be interested in auditioning.
