Auditions for

WORLD PREMIERE PLAY FESTIVAL
STAGED READINGS OF FOUR NEW PLAYS

Add event to calendar

Apple Google Office 365 Outlook Outlook.com

BC Theatre Company is proud to present our World Premiere Play Festival! This exciting event will feature new, ground-breaking plays from some of the most talented writers in the world. We've hand-picked these plays specifically for their ability to entertain and engage our audiences. So come on out and join us for an unforgettable experience!

SEEKING
All types for all roles. Including BIPOC, people with disabilities, gender-fluid, and trans actors. Actors may be cast in one or more plays.

Each full-length play will have three rehearsals and one script-in-hand performance.

WHAT IS A STAGED READING?
Staged readings of plays are a great way to experience the work of a playwright. In these events, actors read from scripts with minimal staging, costumes, or props. Staged readings provide an opportunity for playwrights to receive feedback from the audience and for audiences to develop a better understanding of the work as it is being presented, allowing them to get a glimpse into how interpretation affects a production. Also, staged readings offer playwrights and directors ample opportunity to experiment with new ideas prior to fully mounting a production. With their unique combination of theatricality and intimacy, staged readings are an exciting way to experience theatre.

AUDITIONS
April 3, 4, and 5 at 7:00 PM. Seidule Theatre at Brazosport College - 500 College Drive, Lake Jackson, TX 77566. You only need to attend one evening. 

PREPARE
Just show up! Nothing to prepare!

REHEARSALS and PERFORMANCES

TRANSPORT
by L.C. Bernadine

Rehearses April 9-11
Performs April 12
A mother desperately seeks help to address issues with her daughter and hires an agent from the so-called “troubled teen industry” to legally kidnap her daughter and transport them to a residential school in Utah. But what does it really mean when we try so hard to control what we can't? Is containment the answer? The edges of desperation and compassion are far from clear for all involved in this difficult situation.

GOODNIGHT SUNSHINE
by Terence Patrick Hughes
Rehearses 12, 13, 14
Performs April 15
Fame, family, and the difficulty of returning to the past are all explored in GOODNIGHT SUNSHINE - a bittersweet comedy. Jackie and Billy Allen were a big stand-up comedy team in the 1950s and after Billy left for Hollywood; Jackie hit it big on TV...for a little while. In present day 1985, Jackie is on the eve of a big comeback only to be reunited with his daughter, Becky, who was placed in an asylum twenty years earlier and has now written a sordid family memoir.

Performs April 19
At the Newt-a-Yazoola Festival, held every year in Yazoo, Mississippi along the banks of the Yazoo River, a visitor comes to town. His name is Alexander Halldorson and he has been sent by his company with a mission – to forge connections between the company and the local community. Yet what he finds instead are shattered hopes, broken bones, and one unanswered question – why won't the winged newts take off?

SMILE FOR ME

Rehearses: April 18, 20, 21
Performs: April 22
Fleeing from Paris on the brink of the French Revolution, Lisabeth, personal portrait-painter to Marie Antoinette, discovers herself in Naples, striving to both reinvent her career and climb a recently-erupted Mt. Vesuvius. But will Lisabeth’s reputation from her time in Paris hinder her professional and personal ambitions?

BEFORE YOUR CHILD AUDITIONS, THERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU SHOULD DISCUSS:

A play is a commitment of time and energy. Make sure you review the rehearsal and performance schedule in advance. Do you anticipate any conflicts with soccer, piano, or other activities? If so, it’s important to be honest and let the us know of conflicts in advance. If your child has multiple conflicts, you might also want to encourage your child to take on a less time-consuming position with the production. Remember, every contribution is important!

PREPARE

You’ll receive a scene from the script to read out loud when you arrive at the auitions.
