Auditions

All of our auditions are held at our Gaslight Theatre, 701 Chestnut St.

GASLIGHT THEATRE SERIES

THE PILLOWMAN

With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, THE PILLOWMAN centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitar- ian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.

Auditions for ages 14 to adult are at 6 p.m. Aug. 18 and 5 p.m. Aug. 19.
The show will run Oct. 27-29 at our Gaslight Theatre at 701 Chestnut St.

GASLIGHT THEATRE SERIES

THE GLASS MENAGERIE

Amanda Wingfield is a faded, tragic remnant of Southern gentility who lives in poverty in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura. Amanda strives to give meaning and direction to her life and the lives of her children, though her methods are ineffective and irritating. Tom is driven nearly to distraction by his mother’s nagging and seeks escape in alcohol and the world of the movies. Laura also lives in her illusions. A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, THE GLASS MENAGERIE is one of the most famous plays of the modern theatre.

Auditions for ages 14 to adult are at 6 p.m. Sept. 8 and 5 p.m. Sept. 9.
This is a staged reading and will run Nov. 3-5 at our Gaslight Theatre at 701 Chestnut St.
