WHO: Actors, no experience needed. There are roles for both men and women. All of the characters are adults.
WHAT: are called to audition for Ionesco's "Macbett," the Spring production for the Gavilan College Theatre.
"Macbett" is a theater-of-the-absurd parallel to Shakespeare's "Macbeth" by Eugene Ionesco, best known for "Rhinoceros." Like Shakespeare's original, it is a piece about treachery and the overthrow of a government. The script deals with war and politics in modern, accessible language." Director Jim Cave said "It is almost a political cartoon, written in broad strokes. Given the current world situation, it has a contemporary ring to it."
"Macbett" replaces "Auntie Mame" which had originally been scheduled for Spring production.
Actors may prepare two contrasting monologues or come prepared to do improvisational material.
WHERE: Gavilan College Theatre: 5055 Santa Teresa Blvd., Gilroy
WHEN: Thursday, January 30 and Monday February 3 from 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. both evenings.
