DCP Theatre will be holding auditions for ALABAMA STORY, which opens in April 2019. There will be TWO evenings of auditions, and ONE evening of call backs. During auditions, each actor will have the opportunity to perform 1 monologue of the 5 provided, as well as another monologue of their choosing (or they may tell a personal story). Monologue memorization is not expected, but familiarity is requested. For those who can not attend the Audition Day, video auditions will be accepted until Feb 1st. Videos are expected to have the same material listed above. Those who choose to send in a video must still be available the day of the call backs to read with scene partners in person. For the Audition Form, Monologue Choices, and Schedule, please email Madame Director at RadioSuki@gmail.com.
Audition Days: Monday, Feb 4th and Tuesday Feb 5th, 2019 @ 7pm (Both Days) (Monologues will be seen in the order in which audition forms received are; This will be filmed)
Call Backs: Wednesday, Feb 6th, 2019 @ 7pm (Be available the entire time; This will be filmed)
Note: There will also be an opportunity for two younger actors (about 11-13 years old) to portray young Joshua (black) and young Lily (white) in a filmed flashback scene. The actors will need to be between able to learn lines and take direction, and they must be comfortable kissing another actor strictly within one year of their age [with the permission of a legal guardian]. The actors will not be required for normal production rehearsals, but they will need to come to the set memorized and ready to do the scene multiple times. A copy of the scene will be made available after casting.
