Blue Water Theatre Company is excited to announce auditions for an original play, based on a true story, written and directed by BWTC high school actors Abigail Anderson and Carly Joseph.
The Only Star I Remember tells the true story of Abigail’s great-grandmother, Esther Begam, during and after the Holocaust.
AUDITIONS: Auditions are open to current high school actors (grades 9-12), and will take place by appointment on Sunday, November 17 from 6:00-9:00pm and Monday, November 18 from 4:30-6:50pm in the Blue Water studio.
If you wish to audition, please sign up for a ten-minute slot by clicking HERE. Please come prepared with a 1-2 minute dramatic monologue. In addition, pleased download and print the ACTOR INFORMATION & CONFLICT SHEET, and make sure you fill it out (including obtaining a parent signature) and bring it with you to turn in at your audition.
Callbacks will be Wednesday, November 20 at 7:00pm. If you can not make it to callbacks, please let the directors know at your audition and we will try to find an alternative time.
If you are interested in auditioning, but cannot attend any of the scheduled audition tim es, please email Abby & Carly at email@example.com.
REHEARSALS & PERFORMANCES: Rehearsals for the show will begin on Sunday, December 1, and will take place over a variety of days and times. Please reference the ACTOR INFORMATION & CONFLICT SHEET for the exact schedule.
Note: Other than the three dress/tech rehearsals at the end of the production calendar, the rehearsals will NOT conflict with with BWTC’s upcoming production of Les Miserables, so it is possible for actors to participate in both shows should they desire to do so.
There will be three performances of the show: Thursday, January 23; Saturday, January 25; and Sunday, January 26.
PRODUCTION FEE: In order to help defray expenses, we are asking each member of the cast to contribute a small production fee of just $50. Scholarships are available, if necessary. Please contact Alison Haseman (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information about scholarships eligibility.
*CONTENT NOTE* Due to the nature of the story and the importance of being historically accurate, this show will not be censored. We believe it is important to be truthful and honor the real stories of those who suffered the horrors of the Shoah. Actors will be needed to play Nazis and wear the costumes associated with them. If you are not at all comfortable with doing so, please tell us at your audition.
