The History of Dating Ages 14-18 Auditions (Oct. 19, 3:00pm)

 

Presented by the Spotlight Acting School

All students age 14-18 will be cast. (An age waiver may be requested for younger students and will be approved on a case by case basis.)

Who knew that ancient pickup lines were just as cheesy as today’s?! This zany romp through history is a fun, fast-paced look at the woes and wonders of dating through the ages. Professor Curio — with the help of his spirited partner, Professor Amoré — leads the audience on a chronological journey through time from early nomads and cavemen and women all the way to computer dating in the twenty-first century! With stops at ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian civilizations, then hitting Medieval and Colonial times, the scholarly hosts lead the audience through more modern decades like the Roaring 20s and the Nifty 50s.

Participants should expect to:
1. Read from the script.
2. Act out an improv scene
3. Optional monologues will be accepted at the end of the group auditions.

Rehearsals: Saturday afternoons
Performances: Feb 7-9 & 14-16

Black and Blue Friday Auditions Ages 14+ (Oct. 19, 4:30pm)

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and all Ellie and her new husband, Jackson, want is to celebrate their first holiday season at home together. But their holiday peace and quiet quickly turns into holiday chaos when they are summoned to the security office at the local mall. Seems Ellie’s backwoods relatives were planning to surprise her with a visit, but first stopped at the store to pick up some paper goods. That’s when the trouble began. What they thought was a big-box store turned out to be a shopping mall full of frenzied Black Friday shoppers, and, of course, the hillbilly family ended up causing all sorts of trouble. As Ellie’s family unravels their hysterical stories — like Ellie’s brothers trying to take a ride on the fancy moving staircase only to find themselves sliding around on the ice rink and taking out Santa’s village — one simple truth is revealed. These country bumpkins might not know much about modern-day living, but they sure do understand what the holiday season is about… and it ain’t shopping.

Auditions will consist of a cold read and improv scenes.
