AT GAC -Don’t Miss! – QUADRILLE | JIM LINK | Call for 2020-2021 Show Proposals | COMING SOON: Auditions, Love’s Labour’s Lost
The Greenbelt Arts Center family was saddened to hear the news of James (Jim) Link’s passing on December 23, 2019. Jim was an enthusiastic support of the Greenbelt Arts Center, and wrote great and punchy reviews of our productions for the Greenbelt News Review. He always added his own flair to his writing, shared his criticism fairly, and always was generously cheering on the work that had graced our space. His passion and joy for the arts and his big smile greeting you in the lobby after a performance was a great encouragement for casts and crews alike.
Jim will be greatly missed, and GAC would like to extend its condolences to the Greenbelt News Review, his friends and family, and all who knew him. He will be sorely missed.

The Greenbelt Arts Center announces upcoming auditions for its production of Lillian Hellman’s The Children’s Hour, directed by Pauline Griller-Mitchell
Auditions will be held at the Greenbelt Arts Center, located at 123 Centerway, Greenbelt, MD, 20771, on Saturday, February 1, between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. and on Sunday, February 2, starting at 7:00 p.m. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

International clown performer, teaching artist, and director Mike Funt is happy to announce open auditions for The Clown School East’s premier production. Shipwrecked! tells the grand tale of a famous adventurer who gets lost on the high seas and ends up seeing fantastic things and meeting exotic people. The audience is whisked away from England to the exotic lands of Aboriginal Australia and back again in a story populated by exotic islanders, flying wombats, giant sea turtles and a monstrous man-eating octopus. He is aided by two highly talented players, who play all of the people (and animals) he meets along the way. However, all might not be as it seems… Shipwrecked! brings the joy of storytelling alive, and questions whether a story being real or fabricated makes the journey any less treasured.
Auditions will be held at the Greenbelt Community Center, located at 15 Crescent Road, Greenbelt MD, 20770, on Sunday, February 9, between 7:00 and 10:00 p.m. and on Monday, February 10, between 7:00 and 10:00 p.m.
Please prepare a one-minute monologue that shows versatility in voice and physicality. Auditions will consist of prepared monologues, readings from the script, and a short improvisation. Email the director, Mike Funt, at firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
Rehearsals will be held 3-4 nights each week, starting at 7 p.m. to start and 5 nights the final dress week, leading up to 6 performances beginning on March 20 and ending on March 29. Friday and Saturday performances have an 8 p.m. curtain, and Sunday matinees will have a 2 p.m. curtain. Be prepared at auditions to detail all conflicts you may have throughout the rehearsal and performance schedule.
