Announcing auditions: Photograph 51

Director Steve Martin has announced audition information for Photograph 51, the second show in the 2012-13 Staged Reading Series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The script is by Anna Ziegler.

Auditions will be held Sunday, September 23 from 2-4 p.m. and Monday, September 24 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Civic Theatre office, 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette.

Steve is looking to cast one female actor, mid-30s to mid-40s, and five male actors, from mid-20s to mid-40s.

Those who are auditioning will be asked to read from the script. Scripts are available for checkout at the Civic Theatre office, 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette.

A funny and moving portrait of the unrequited life of Rosalind Franklin, one of the great female scientists of the twentieth century, and her fervid drive to map the contours of the DNA molecule. A chorus of physicists relives the chase, revealing the unsung achievements of this trail-blazing, fiercely independent woman. A play about ambition, isolation, and the race for greatness.

The staged reading of Photograph 51 will be Tuesday, Oct. 23 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre in downtown Lafayette. It is a Pay What You Can event, and there will be a question-and-answer session immediately following.

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.
