Join The Falcon's Eye Theatre this Fall!

The Falcon's Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College calls for actors from the community to audition for its fall production of The Good Person of Szechwan, Bertolt Brecht's engaging parable.

A young woman, who is forced into prostitution by poverty, is rewarded handsomely after opening her home to three visiting gods. By disproving the gods' contention that no goodness still exists on earth, the woman is given a small business by the gods, and from there she struggles to work honestly and to provide for the needy. After falling victim to unscrupulous neighbors and a dishonest lover, she is forced to create a fierce, manipulative, and efficient alter-ego - that of her strong-willed business-savvy male "cousin." Will the forces of capitalism overwhelm her, or will she maintain her goodness in a world of corruption?

Audition Date: Tuesday, September 6, 6:30pm on a first-come, first-served basis.

Audition Location: Auditions will take place in the Drama Lab (PAC-1170) of the Three Stages Performing Arts Center on the Folsom campus of Folsom Lake College, 10 College Parkway (off E. Bidwell St.), Folsom, 95630. For a map, click here. On College Parkway, turn left at the stop sign. One dollar parking permits are available at kiosks located throughout the parking lots. Please access PAC-1170 through the door indicated on the map.

Auditioners MUST prepare a monologue that is no more than 90-seconds-long from any stage play. This monologue should best portray the actor's strengths and can be of any genre, but must be from a play written for the stage. This monologue must be memorized. Auditioners who are called back will also be asked to audition by way of cold readings from the text. Auditions are expected to run until approximately 10pm. It is requested that auditioners bring an 8x10 photo-headshot and resume of acting experience, if available, but this is not required.

Callbacks: September 7 & 8, 6:30pm by invitation only.

Rehearsal Dates: September 12 through October 27, evenings and some weekend afternoons. Significant conflicts with these dates are not allowed.

Performance Dates: October 28 through November 13, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. Additional performances are Saturday, November 5 at 2pm and Thursday, November 10 at 8pm. Performances will be held at Three Stages at Folsom Lake College in Stage 2, the City Studio Theater.

Call (916) 608-6800 for more information.
