2015-2016 TSS Auditions
Auditions for The Hostage by Brendan Behan are Sun Aug 23rd 1:00-3:00 pm & Mon August 24th 7-9 pm. Directed by Cynthia Charles (Executive Director for TSS) Set & Lighting Design by Barry Fritz.
Looking for strong, committed ACTORS, who sing and/or play instruments. Irish Dialect required except for the young British soldier. Only actors 18 and older should audition.
Please prepare a 1-2 minute a cappella English/Irish ballad or folk song or bring sheet music in the appropriate key. Accompanist provided, or you can accompany yourself. If you play a musical instrument, please bring it with you and play a very short selection or just demonstrate your skill.
Be prepared to read sides from the script and to learn and sing a few bars of one of the songs from the show. Allow at least one hour for your audition. Bring any and all conflicts for Oct and Nov, as that will affect our casting decisions, and, a photo and resume if you’ve never worked for TSS before.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know your name, cell phone and preferred email address; what day and hour you can attend; whether you need an accompanist and whether you will be playing an instrument. (Sunday at 1 pm or 2 pm or Monday at 7 pm or 8 pm.)
Read thru late September, rehearsals beginning early October and are generally M-Thu 7-10pm, adding weekends two weeks before opening or as needed. Please keep conflicts to a minimum as not everyone is called for all rehearsals and we are only rehearsing four days a week! Music rehearsals will be incorporated into the schedule. Dialects are the actors’ homework, dialect CD’s provided if you need them.
Performances will be held in November, details are being finalized soon.
