STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Theatre at Tarleton is hosting open auditions — 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15, and 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center 103 — for roles in two upcoming productions, The Revenant and A Christmas Carol: A Radio Play.
Members of the Tarleton State University student body, faculty and staff, and residents of Stephenville and the Erath County area age 8 and above are invited. Materials for reading will be provided.
The Revenant, which opens Oct. 27, introduces two Victorian-era gentlemen who find themselves in a London park at night with no knowledge of who brought them there or why. They accuse one another of their real intentions while also discussing a lady in their lives. Rehearsals begin Sept. 19.
Rehearsals for A Christmas Carol: A Radio Play begin Oct. 16 for the Nov. 29 opening. Written by Philip Grecian, the familiar story is told as a radio drama onstage, complete with sound effects and music cues. The play is staged with minimal costuming and a simple set. The actors each perform multiple parts and will read from scripts at three floor microphones downstage. Sound effects and music are performed live.
