Director Anne Hasselberg has announced auditions for Frozen, the first staged reading in the 2013-2014 Staged Reading Series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Bryony Lavery wrote the script.
Auditions will be Sunday, August 11, and Monday, August 12 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Civic Theatre's office, 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette. Actors will be asked to read from the script.
Anne is seeking to cast one man and two women.
One evening ten-year-old Rhona goes missing. Her mother, Nancy, retreats into a state of frozen hope. Agnetha, an American academic, comes to England to research a thesis: "Serial Killing - A Forgivable Act?" Then there's Ralph, a loner who's looking for some distraction. Drawn together by horrific circumstances, these three embark on a long, dark journey which finally curves upward into the light. Angry, humane and compassionate, Frozen is an extraordinary play that entwines the lives of a murderer, the mother of one of his victims and his psychologist to explore our capacity for forgiveness, remorse and change after an act that would seem to rule them out entirely.
The staged reading of Frozen will be Tuesday, Sept. 3 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street - on the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette.
It is a Pay What You Can event, and it will be followed immediately by a question-and-answer session between the cast, the director and the audience.
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.
