This intense drama tells one family's story of tragedy and survival. Twins Mason and Dixon (both played by Amanda Zeitler) and their family -- troubled younger brother Lewis (Ren Stone), well-meaning father Stan (Sean Butler), and devoted friend Christopher (Matt Baughman) -- have already been through hell. But something worse is hiding in plain sight.

Content Warning: This show contains: themes of gun violence, and suicide; gunfire.

Auditions for the world premier production of The Honey Trap, written and directed by by Michael C. Stepowany, will be held at the theater on Sunday January 13, and Monday January 14 at 7:00 PM, with callbacks on Tuesday January 15 at 7:00 PM. Auditions will include cold readings from the script. Please provide a resumé and a headshot (if you have one) and have your conflicts handy.

A small 4th of July, 1957, "watch the atom bomb" party is gathering in a Las Vegas hotel room. Against the background of the "Rat Pack" and their music, The Honey Trap is a door slamming comedy. Just as the party begins, an F.B.I. agent arrives, chaos ensues, and the lives of everyone are forever altered.

Cast of characters:

Mid to late 20's, African-American female. A showgirl for the hotel casino. Feisty and fierce. Flo has dreams of being a ballerina, or at least a headliner in a Casino show.
Late 20's early 30's, Japanese Female. F.B.I. Agent. Petite, but forthright and serious about her position. MK (Mary Katherine) is investigating the Colonel. She was raised in the internment camps during WW2, so she has little or no accent.
Mid to late 20's, Latino male. A bell boy for the hotel-casino. Mortimer has a thick Mexican accent. He is in love with Flo. He has inherited his fathers ranch in New Mexico, but is loyal to his job. He occasionally speaks Spanish. He also occasionally uses both an Edward G. Robinson, and a James Cagney voice.
Colonel Brooks
Late 40's, male. A recently retired Air Force Colonel. Corrupt through and through. Bombastic. Loves the freedom the military and its uncounted millions offer him.
Mid to late 20's, female. Colonel Brooks' Secretary. Sexy, seductive. She is in reality a Russian Spy. Lana speaks in act one with an American Southern accent and act two in a Russian accent. She appears in lingerie during the play.
Late 40's, female. The Colonel's wife. Overbearing and outspoken. A proud daughter of a Senator. She has pulled herself up from a simple life to become the wife of an internationally important military man. She takes full advantage of the perks afforded her.

Rehearsals will be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings, weekends if needed, more often as tech and opening get closer.

Performances are weekends April 26 - May 12. All roles are open and unpaid.

Call for Directors

Greenbelt Arts Center (GAC) is actively soliciting submissions for its 2019/2020 season.

Continuing our approach from last year, in an effort to seamlessly plan our entire season, Greenbelt Arts Center asks that ALL potential projects go through this submission process.

When submitting, be sure to mark the box correctly: 1) for a GAC Resident production (RP); 2) a Guest Theater Organization (GTO); or 3) a Music/Other Event Guest Rental. Resident productions are wholly sponsored by Greenbelt Arts Center; GTO productions are sponsored by the guest organization and split net profits from ticket sales with GAC on a 50/50 basis; and renters pay an hourly rate for the use of GAC space.

The target date for these submissions is December 31, 2018. Submissions before and up to that date are welcome; submissions beyond that date will only receive consideration at the discretion of the selection committee.

Additionally, for resident productions, indicate whether members of the production team are already onboard, as that may enhance the chance that your submission will be selected.
