Announcing auditions: The Break of Noon

Director Denise Laussade has announced audition information for The Break of Noon, the final staged reading in the 2012-2013 Staged Reading Series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The script is by Neil LaBute.

Auditions will be Sunday, April 7 and Monday, April 8 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Appointments are suggested, please call Civic Theatre at 765-423-PLAY (7529) to schedule.

The subject matter is suitable for mature audiences.

Denise is seeking to cast three men and four women:

* John - male, middle-aged
* Lawyer - male, fifties
* Host - female, thirties
* Ginger - female, middle-aged
* Diva Midnight - female, twenties
* Detective - male, forties
* Jessie - female, middle-aged

Amidst the chaos and horror of the worst office shooting in American history, John Smith sees the face of God. His modern-day revelation creates a maelstrom of disbelief among everyone he knows. A newcomer to faith, John urgently searches for a modern response to the age-old question: at what cost salvation?

The staged reading of The Break of Noon will be Tuesday, May 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the historic Monon Depot Theatre in downtown Lafayette. It is a Pay What You Can Event.

There will be a question-and-answer session immediately following between the audience, cast and director.

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.
