Announcing auditions: Red

Director Craig Martin has announced audition information for Red, the first staged reading of the 2012-13 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The Tony Award-winning script is by John Logan.

Auditions will be held Sunday, August 19 from 6-9 p.m. and Monday, August 20 from 6-9 p.m. at the Civic Theatre office, 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette.

Craig is looking for two male actors, one middle-aged and one in his mid-20s.

Those who are auditioning will be asked to read from the script. Please arrive as early as possible to the audition and expect to remain until dismissed.

Scripts are available for checkout at the Civic Theatre office, 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette.

Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Raw and provocative, Red is a searing portrait of an artist's ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.

Red will be performed Tuesday, September 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre in downtown Lafayette. It will be a Pay What You Can performance.

There will be a question-and-answer session immediately following the reading.

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
