Summer Production Classes Give Everyone a Chance to Experience Theatre
Fairfield, CA – March 22, 2011 – Solano College Theatre announces auditions for two upcoming summer productions, The Visit and Love’s Labour’s Lost. Unlike other SCT productions, everyone who auditions for these summer classes will receive a part. Both productions are completely student produced, and design and technical skills are needed as well.
Auditions for The Visit, directed by George Maguire, are April 25 and 27 at the Harbor Theatre in Downtown Suisun City. Callbacks are May 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Actors are asked to prepare a one-minute contemporary monologue. All roles are available, except the role of Claire Zachanassian, which will be played by SCT Conservatory Director Carla Spindt. Please see our website at www.solanocollegetheatre.com for a complete listing of available roles. Please call the Solano College Theatre production office at (707) 864-7000, ext. 4518 to schedule an audition appointment. Written by German playwright Friedrich Durrenmatt, The Visit takes place “somewhere in Central Europe” and tells of an elderly millionairess who, merely on the promise of her millions, swiftly turns a depressed area into a boom town…but with what macabre condition? Rehearsals for The Visit begin June 13, 2011. The play performs outside on the Suisun City Waterfront July 26-28 and August 2-4.
Auditions for Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, Directed by Carla Spindt, are April 29 from 6-10 p.m. and May 1 from 2-5 p.m. at the Harbor Theatre in Downtown Suisun City. Callbacks are May 9 from 6-10 p.m. Actors are asked to prepare a one-minute monologue from Shakespeare and be prepared to read from the script. All roles are available. Please see our website at www.solanocollegetheatre.com for a complete listing of available roles. Please call the Solano College Theatre production office at (707) 864-7000, ext. 4518 to schedule an audition appointment. Love’s Labour’s Lost is one of the bard's earliest comedies, in which four bachelors who have dedicated themselves to chastity and scholarly pursuits soon encounter the women of their dreams. Rehearsals for the play are June 6 to August 4, 2011, from 1-4 p.m. Monday through Friday. It performs at the Harbor Square Courtyard in front of the fireplace on August 5-7 and 10-13.
Both of these shows are summer production classes. All actors are required to assist with technical and design support. Actors will also be required to register for four units at Solano Community College to participate in either production (or eight units to participate in both).
