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.
July 9 & 10 – Harvey by Mary Chase

Synopsis: Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit. To avoid future embarrassment for her family—and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae—Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother. The truth comes out, however; Veta is freed, and the search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. But it seems that Elwood and his invisible companion have had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.
