Director Kyle Borcz has announced auditions for The Sleeper, the second staged reading in the 2013-2014 Stage Reading Series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Catherine Butterfield wrote the script.
A suburban "security mom," shell-shocked by the new post-9/11 reality, finds herself irresistibly drawn to her son's tutor, a handsome young man with political leanings far different from her own. Her "awakening" leads to a bizarre series of events that blow the lid off her previously sheltered existence and change the lives of all around her. A dark and slightly zany comedy.
Auditions will be Sunday, October 6 and Monday, October 7 from 7-9 p.m. at the Civic Theatre office, 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette. Actors will be asked to read from the script.
Actors are encouraged to read the full script before auditions. It can be checked out from the Civic Theatre office. Actors are asked to arrive at 7 p.m. either night and stay for as much of the two hours as possible. Please bring a calendar to note availability for rehearsals as well as conflicts.
Kyle seeks to cast four (4) men and three (3) women of various ages and backgrounds.
The staged reading of The Sleeper will be Tuesday, October 22 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.
