Auditions for Van Gogh Plays

Commedia Beauregard is looking for 10-15 actors of various types for its next Master Works production. This show is made up of six short plays based on the works of Vincent Van Gogh. Six paintings, six playwrights, six plays! Plays are by local playwrights Ellen Cribbs, Christopher Kidder-Mostrom, Rory Leahy, Jason Lindner, Alberto Mendoza & Sean Margaret Wagner. The show offers a fun blend of genius and insanity – not unlike the painter.

Time Commitment:
Performances are May 2-5, 2013 at the Raven Theatre (6157 N Clark). Each play will have approximately five rehearsals in April, scheduled to accommodate each director and set of actors. Tech rehearsals are April 28-May 1.

Material To Prepare:
90-second (or shorter) contemporary monologue. Be prepared to read from the scripts. Auditions will be held in 5 minute slots.

Mar 24 12:30-3pm
Mar 25 6:30-10pm
