Please indicate whether you want to audition as a director or actor and whether this is your first, second, or third choice!
The script, Technical Difficulties, is based on several pieces by Michael, Frayn, a great comic playwright best known for Noises Off. And this year, we are going to do things a little differently: Alles is Drama is allowing me to not only cast between 4 to 8 actors and actresses for this production, but I will also be selecting up to 4 student directors, the idea being that I will divide the production into sections and each part will be directed by one of the student directors, working with me as their mentor.
The first few weeks of the production will be a mini-directing course to give my student directors a basic ‘tool-box’ to work with before starting rehearsals. By the end of this production, Alles is Drama will have some experienced, in-house directors for future projects! Everyone will have fun doing this piece- it’s laugh, after laugh, after laugh- and goodness knows we all need that in our lives right now!
With regard to Corona restrictions-
The way that this play is structured, a rehearsal evening will never require more than 6 of us to be together at a time. Each mini-play has a max of 4 characters, and so a rehearsal would need those actors, myself and the student director. The exception to this would be the first-rehearsal- read through. This could take place in person or over zoom. And because the mini-plays have small casts, we could even do rehearsals easily over zoom. So, this show will go on!!!
Note this is a 3/4 production, meaning the premiere is in March. So you need to be available for longer than this semester.
