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 15 & 16 – Bottoms Up!, by Gregg Kreutz
Director Jerry Uppinghouse will be looking for 6 men and 3 women for this hilarious farce set in a hotel in the Caribbean. When June, an earnest aerobics instructor, unknowingly acquires the cash filled suitcase of two money launderers from Cleveland all chaos breaks loose! Their attempts to retrieve the suitcases cause a soft core movie director to mistake June for the next star of his basement budget production “Tan All Over”. Then he discovers the money and joins the convoluted efforts to get the suitcase. Interference is provided by: his former star who is now an outraged moralist, a nervous chemistry instructor visiting the island under duress, the hotel owner, and her sticky fingered nephew. Wild chases, bizarre disguises, and the silliest looking aerobics dance ever make this a truly riotous farce.
Performances will be June 7-23, 2019. The rehearsal schedule will include many Sunday evenings to work on timing. There are many multiple cast entrances/exits that are important to the success of this play (as with most farces). Due to the heavy line loads for most actors, be prepared for slightly longer rehearsals (if needed).
