Open Auditions for "The Bottle Tree".
Show dates are: March 9-11, 2018.
There are exciting and fun parts available!
Auditioners should bring a headshot (snapshot or "selfie" so director can remember who's who) and calendar with all conflicts through mid-March of 2018. Auditions will be by cold readings from the script.
"The Bottle Tree" was written by Beth Kander. Five years after a school shooting, Alley, the struggling, smart-mouthed teenage sister of the shooter, wrestles with forgiveness, moving forward, and the lingering questions left in the wake of her brother's crime. Another decade later, as an adult, finding satisfying answers proves no easier. Will she ever find an opportunity for hope and healing, or will the ghosts of her past forever haunt her?
"Its publicity claims the subject of Beth Kander's play to be "gun culture"-a summary akin to declaring To Kill A Mockingbird a study of Alabama law practice." Mary Shen Barnidge, Windy City Times.
"One of the best plays I saw in Chicago last year. Incredibly powerful, smart, and impactful." Skye Robinson Hillis.
"A sincere, non-condescending and compassionate piece of writing..." Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune.
Rehearsals will begin after the first of the year.
For additional audition information or to ask questions, contact by phone.
NOTE: Since in this play the characters are either classmates or family, the ages of the actors cast will necessarily have to be interrelated. Actors playing Alley, Joseph, Monica, and Rick will be cast to appear about the same age. Rhoda, Alley's mother, will need to be appropriately older than Alley.
