PLAYHOUSE PRODUCTION: Tartuffe

Written by Molière, Directed by Domenique Lozano

A con man disguised as a pious spiritual leader wheedles his way into the home of a gullible wealthy man in the midst of a mid-life crisis—and sets the household topsy turvy. If not for the quick witted Dorine, grounded Elmire, and infinitely patient Cléante, all might be lost! Lechery, egotism, young love, deception and delusion collide in Moliere’s famous classic work,
Tartuffe, that skewers religious hypocrisy and self-inflated egotism.

CASTING: 5 Women and 7 Men, with the potential to expand the cast with up to 8 more performers as part of the ensemble; actors from all backgrounds are welcome.

The audition monologue should be no longer than two minutes and can be either contemporary or classical; preferably, the piece has heightened language and/or circumstances.

STUDIO PRODUCTION: 70 Scenes of Halloween

Written by Jeffrey M. Jones, Directed by Christopher Herold

In this quirky, inventive, and wildly theatrical play, ordinary married couple Jeff and Joan seem set to spend Halloween on their couch in a state of mild antagonism and mutual boredom. But as time fragments and reassembles, dark forces emerge — and the couple must contend with ghosts, beasts, and witches banging on their windows, wafting through their rooms, and wielding butcher knives.

Additional casting details forthcoming.
