Run/Shoot Dates: 09/05/2016 - 09/05/2016
The Bridge Initiative and Southwest Shakespeare are partnering together to present a reading of a new play called "Asterion," by playwright Liz Duffy Adams (http://lizduffyadams.com/). Liz will be in town for the opening weekend of Southwest Shakespeare's production of her play "OR," and will be working with us on this project. It will be a fantastic opportunity to interface with an established playwright workshopping a new piece.
Participation Fees: No
Casting the following roles along with active chorus members.
Asterion: Good coming timing. A central characteristic is honesty and native intelligence mixed with naivete, some pathos and physical and mental strength. Empathy for this character will depend upon these qualities.
Ariadne: Good comic timing. Honesty, inner and outer strength and sensitivity sparked with intelligence but initially buried under naive trust.
Theseus: Good comic timing. Genuine, if naive, strength of conviction and duty, honesty and some oblivion.
The time commitment is Labor Day weekend, September 3-5.
Rehearsals will be Sat-Mon, in the 10-5ish timeframe (exact times TBD) with the public reading on Monday, September 5th, at 7:00 p.m.
We are offering a $25 stipend for each of the three lead actors (the play also has a sizable chorus which we intend to cast with high school and college students.)
The playwright, Liz Duffy Adams will be joining us for the workshop. Her play OR, is opening the same weekend with Southwest Shakespeare Company.
What To Prepare: Auditions will consist of readings from the play, "ASTERION".
Southwest Shakespeare Company space is next to the Mesa Arts Center.
