AUDITIONS FOR Staged Reading Festival: Lost Posadas

Auditions at VSA N. 4th, 4904 N. 4th St. NW. Brian Hansen, Director. No prepared audition material is required. For further information, please call the director, Brian Hansen, at (805) 637-4032.
Seeking actors (male and female) for a staged reading of a new, bilingual play set in Northern New Mexico. Lost Posadas has been selected for a single performance at the Adobe Theatre on May 17th as part of their Third Annual ATG Playwright’s Circle Staged Reading Festival.. Rehearsals will be limited (a total of 9 hours spread over 3 rehearsals) and the actors will be carrying scripts. Thus, a staged reading of a new play is a great opportunity for actors to hone their reading skills while developing fully realized characters. Because the play is bilingual in parts, special attention will be given to Latina actors, especially those who speak Spanish.
Lost Posadas deals with a village rediscovering its roots by re-staging the folk play Las Posadas; the fact that most of the village has never even seen the play and that their opening night will be live on national television only heightens the pressure.
Outstanding roles are available, including:
The hard driving (female) mayor of the town;
Three Hispanic young women who figure centrally in the action;
Two young Hispanic Men, one of whom ends up playing the devil;
One Hispanic male who heads up a garage band (and preferably plays the guitar);
The female, take-charge producer of a television production company.
