Announcing auditions for August: Osage County

Director Bill Caise has announced audition information for August: Osage County, the third show of the 2012-2013 Staged Reading Series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The Pulitzer Prize-winning script is by Tracy Letts.

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

Bill is looking for 6 men, from late 30s through late 60s, and 7 women, from mid-teens through late 60s. For a full listing of characters and descriptions, check out a script from Civic Theatre, 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette.

Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script. Please arrive early to auditions and stay as long as possible.

A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you've got a major new play that unflinchingly – and uproariously – exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.

The staged reading of August: Osage County will be Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 7:30 p.m. 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.
