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.
April 16 & 17 – Is He Dead by Mark Twain, adapted by David Ives
Jean-Francois Millet, a young painter of genius, is in love with Marie Leroux but in debt to Bastien Andre. Andre forecloses on Millet, threatening debtor’s prison unless Marie marries him. Millet realizes that the only way he can pay his debts and keep Marie from marrying Andre is to die, as it is only dead painters who achieve fame and fortune. He fakes his death and prospers, all while passing himself off as his own sister, the Widow Tillou. Now a rich “widow,” he must find a way to get out of a dress, return to life, and marry Marie.
Director Jerry Uppinghouse will be filling a cast of 4-6 Women and 7-12 Men of various ages. Further information TBA.
