Auditions for Fall Play

Falcon's Eye Theatre
August 12, 2013

"The Crucible" premieres this Fall

"The Crucible" premieres this Fall

The Falcon's Eye announces an open call to students and community members to audition for Arthur Miller's The Crucible, a classic portrait of one man's struggle toward grace. The Crucible takes place in the scorching context of the 17th-century Salem witch trials and unravels a tale of human struggles both internal and external. The Crucible is a community galvanized by fear and suspicion, a wife betrayed by lust, an orphan girl blind with passion and obsessed with revenge, ruthless prosecutors, deluded holy men and covetous neighbors. Arthur Miller's script pulses with the destructiveness of socially sanctioned violence, the power of hysteria and rancor, the blindness of zealots, and the heart of one tortured man trying to find his own goodness.

Audition Dates: Tuesday, September 3, 2013, 6:30pm. Auditions held on a first-come, first-served basis.

Audition Location: Auditions will take place in the Drama Lab (PAC-1170) at the Harris Center for the Arts 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.

Auditioners MUST prepare a monologue that is no more than 60-seconds-long from any play. Please no teleplays or screenplays or passages from novels or song lyrics. Also, please no original writing. This monologue should best portray the actor's strengths and can be of any genre. This monologue must be memorized. It is requested that Auditioners bring a full-sized photo-headshot and resume of acting experience, if available, but this is not required.

Callbacks: September 4 & 5, 6:30pm, by invitation only. Auditioners who are called back will also be asked to audition by way of cold readings from the text. Therefore, it is recommended that Auditioners be familiar with the story of The Crucible before auditioning. Auditions and call-backs are expected to run until approximately 10:00pm each night.

Rehearsal Dates: Approximate dates and times are September 16 through October 24, 2013, evenings and some weekend afternoons. Minor conflicts with these dates are permissible. Significant conflicts with these dates are not allowed.

Performance Dates: October 25 through November 10, 2013, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm.
