Tuesday, May 3rd at 6:30 p.m.
The Catherine Lindsey Actors/Playwrights Workshop, now in its 24th year, will be holding acting auditions for roles in their public performances. The playwriting workshops will conclude with a public performance at the Library on Sunday, May 22nd at 2 p.m.
Auditions are open to all. Playwrights are looking for a diverse group of adult actors to play parts meant for those in their late twenties through early eighties. Rehearsals will then take place in May through the performance.
The plays selected for performance are:
An Assignation by Jim Gordon
Belt For It by Lisa Power
Invisible Fence by Terry Steimer
Sometimes I Cry by Nicholas Troilo
The Actors/Playwrights Workshop welcomes Actors’ Equity actors and non-Equity actors to participate, brings together local and regional playwrights and actors, and encourages a collaborative effort to create new plays and present a public-staged reading. Co-founded by the late Catherine Lindsey and her husband Robert, the workshop introduces original plays in progress to be developed in a workshop environment with the goal of the public-staged readings. Catherine Lindsey was a beloved friend of the Library and director of Darien Library Theater for over 25 years. The memorial workshops offer actors and playwrights the opportunity to work together to create original theatrical works in a supportive and creative environment culminating in the staged readings of short scenes from full-length plays, one-act plays, musicals, and monologues.
