The Marion Art Center Theater announces open auditions for the upcoming production of select one acts from the humorous collection All in the Timing by playwright David Ives. Auditions will be held at the Marion Art Center on Sat., 4/2 from 10:00am-12:00pm and on Sun., 4/3 from 1:00-3:00pm, at The MAC, 80 Pleasant St., Marion, MA. Only fully vaccinated actors will be considered for roles. Please wear a mask while inside the Marion Art Center.
Selected one acts include Words, Words, Words (directed by Shelia McManus) which recalls the philosophical adage that three monkeys typing into infinity will sooner or later produce Hamlet and asks: What would monkeys talk about at their typewriters?; The Philadelphia (directed by Linda Costa), which presents two friends in a restaurant who have fallen into “a Philadelphia”, a Twilight Zone-like state in which they cannot get anything they ask for; Sure Thing (directed by Donn Tyler), where two people meet in a café and find their way through a conversational minefield as an offstage bell interrupts their false starts, gaffes, and faux pas on the way to falling in love; and Variations on the Death of Trotsky (directed by Kate Fishman), which shows us the Russian revolutionary on the day of his demise, desperately trying to cope with the mountain-climber’s axe he’s discovered in his head.
Directors will cast up to a total of eleven actors of any age or gender, and some doubling of parts may occur across one act plays. Rehearsal times and dates will be determined by directors (in collaboration with actors) after cast is selected.
Performances are scheduled outdoors in Bicentennial Park (across the street from the Marion Art Center) June 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 17, and 18. For more information, visit marionartcenter.org/auditions.
