In the words of director, Richard Dominick:
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a DYNAMIC play which needs a DYNAMIC cast...
Cuckoo's Nest will be performed on a small stage, audience on three sides, audience sitting right in front of cast....Be aware that during the performances you may be able to tell the flavor of the Tic Tac the lady in the front row is sucking on.
No need to get into detail about the play, as we are sure most everyone is familiar with Cuckoo's Nest - but the play differs from both the novel and the movie... Be aware of that as well.
This is an intense play. Every character is important.
We at Parker Players Theatre Company look forward to seeing those who will audition.
If you have a headshot bring it - and definitely bring a resume.
We do not want you to come prepared with a monologue.
If we want you to read, it will be something cold from the script.
In most cases, the first round of auditions will be talking about your theatre history and about your thoughts on Cuckoo's Nest.
In other words, bring a resume and yourself.
We'll take it from there.
Cast will be called for rehearsals during weekday evenings and occasional weekends. Schedule will be based on cast availability.
Rehearsals will start May 8th and will be held in Deer Park and Barrington
Performances will be at Campus Life Center 150 S Lageschulte St Barrington, IL 60010
Tech Week (no conflicts): 7/9 - 7/13
