Auditions for "On the Verge"

Tuesday & Wednesday, Jan. 9-10, 6-9 PM

 Red Curtain announces auditions for Eric Overmeyer's surreal and hypnagogic tale of exploration and feminism, "On the Verge: or the Geography of Yearning." The show runs March 2-18, 2018 and is directed by Justin Tinsley.


Three female explorers from 1888 set out to trek through the wilds and unknown obstacles of "Terra-Incognita". Along the way they find themselves inexplicably travelling through time, as well as space, unearthing strange artifacts and newspaper clippings from the future. An eclectic blend of characters (all played by the same actor) stray into the ladies' path, seemingly acting as guides, along the way. 


Actors are asked to submit a head shot and resume to office@redcurtainfoundation.org to reserve an audition time slot; please note preferred date/time. The director asks that actors come prepared to perform a memorized 2-minute dramatic monologue, using elevated speech. Men will also be asked to demonstrate a German accent. Cold readings may be part of the audition process. There is no pay. 


RCF is an equally opportunity theatre company, and supports color-conscious and gender-blind casting.


Auditions, rehearsals, and performances will be at the Red Curtain Arts Center, located at 9315 State St, suite J in Marysville. We're in the Goodwill shopping center, behind the cosmetology school.
