RCF announces two nights of auditions, Nov 9 and 10, for Tennessee Williams' classic tragedy, "A Streetcar Named Desire" at the Red Curtain Arts Center (9315 State Ave, suite J in Marysville), directed by Scott B Randall. Performances will be January 27-February 12, 2017.
The play reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject—so far as possible—the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores. The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister, with whom she goes to live in New Orleans, intensified by the earthy and extremely "normal" young husband of the latter, leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness.
Actors of color are especially encouraged to audition, as the director intends to cast this play unconventionally, with a primarily non-white cast.
Actors should come prepared with a two-minute dramatic monologue and be prepared for cold readings from the script. To reserve an audition time, please email your current headshot and resume to email@example.com. This is a non-paying, community theatre production.
