Want to be on stage at an Ignite! production? Here’s information on our upcoming auditions. Ignite auditions usually consist of “cold readings” from the script. While it is always good to be familiar with the script/show prior to auditions but is not a requirement for casting. Please come dressed in appropriate attire for movement and be willing to work with others. Auditions start at 6:30pm unless otherwise noted.
February 11 & 12 – Bloody Murder, by Ed Sala
Director Bryan Durbin will be looking for 3-6 women and 3-6 men for this comedy, which takes the classic murder mystery and turns it on its ear. The usual British murder mystery types are all gathered for a weekend retreat at a country estate. Suddenly, one of them is poisoned! As the hostess laments their misfortune, the cast begins to suspect that they’re all part of a plot. Performances will be April 12-28. Auditions will be readings from the script, and rehearsals will likely be weeknight evenings (with occasional weekend rehearsals based on schedule availability).
February 18 & 19 – King Lear, by William Shakespeare
Director Brian Cheney will be looking for an ensemble cast for this Booklight production of one of the Bard’s tragedies. The play follows the gradual descent of the king into madness as his kingdom is split and his thoughts are poisoned. Casting is very flexible. Auditions will include readings from the script, and no previous experience is necessary. Performances will be March 15-17, 2019.
