The Greenbelt Arts Center announces additional openings for its production of Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, directed by Randy Barth.
Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia has won awards and accolades ever since its first appearance in 1993. It is set in an English country house, and takes place in both early 1800s and in 2000. There scholars debate the relationships between past and present, order and disorder, and certainty and uncertainty. The (often inaccurate) sleuthing of the modern researchers is contrasted with those who lived there before and provide both comedy and drama. And indeed, there are scandals, both academic and personal, that keep the plot shifting. It presents a rich combination of farcical elements, clever wordplay, and omens of a dark future.
Formal auditions have left some parts still unfilled particularly for men and teen (or young twenties) of both genders. If you are interested contact director at Randy.Barth@comcast.net
Rehearsals will be held three weekday evenings a week beginning March 9, leading up to nine performances beginning on May 15 and ending on May 31. Be prepared to detail all conflicts you may have throughout the rehearsal and performance schedule.
Note: there is considerable flexibility in character ages, particularly in the older parts. The information below is only a guideline For more insight into the play and characters see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcadia_(play). All roles are non-union and unpaid.
