Suffield’s Acting Class performs “The Auditioners”
The Acting Class performed a one-act in the Jeanice Seaverns Performing Arts Center on February 12. A short comedy by Doug Rand, “The Auditioners” depicts a series of unusual and humorous casting calls. The audition was supposed to be simple: prepare one classical monologue and one contemporary monologue. But when this challenge is taken up by a beauty queen, a stand-up comic, a slam poet, an Esperanto-speaking mime, and a parade of other crazies—most of whom insist on doing the same Lady Macbeth piece very badly—what's a director to do?
Department Chair Tom Dugan commented, “The Acting Class was eager to perform again following the success of the fall one-act. This term, we focused on monologue work versus the ensemble piece we last presented. The show was a hilarious look at various personalities attempting to audition for a show. We could tell by the crowd’s laughter the team really pulled it off well.”
