After an extremely successful run of The 39 Steps last season inside Kelsey Theatre, Theater-To-Go and Pierrot Productions are teaming up once again for a production of the timeless classic – Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, and they are looking for actors to bring this show to life once again.
Directed by Ruth Markoe, Tennessee Williams’ heart-wrenching drama examines the web of deceit holding a wealthy Southern family together while threatening to tear them apart. Over the course of one sultry Mississippi night, the characters’ gentility disappears as accusations of greed, sexual desire, and dishonesty — long repressed — come to the fore. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play (Williams’ self-proclaimed favorite) forces the audience and characters alike to determine what is truth, what is a lie, and which lies have become the truth.
Auditions will take place by appointment on Sunday, November 16th from 7pm-10pm and Monday, November 17th from 7pm-10pm. The auditions will take place on the campus of Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, New Jersey.
Prepare a 1-3 minute contemporary dramatic monologue from any stage work. Be prepared for readings as assigned by the director. Familiarity with the play is advised.
Rehearsals will begin after Thanksgiving. 2-3 weekday evenings and one weekend day (adjusting for holidays).
For an appointment, or if you have questions, please contact Pierrot Productions via e-mail at PierrotAtKelsey@gmail.com.
