AUDITIONS for WAITING FOR GODOT 

Directed by Eric Thibodeaux-Thompson

 

Monday, December 2 & Tuesday, December 3: 7-10 pm – 2019

ESTRAGON — Male. 40-60.
VLADIMIR — Male. 40-60.
LUCKY — Male. 30-50.
POZZO — Male. 50-70.
A BOY — Male. 10-15.

Scripts are available by making arrangements with Rhys Lovell, Artistic Director (309.824.7432 or rhyslovell500@gmail.com)

The director would like to do primarily cold readings from scripts/sides. Prepared monologues are welcomed, but not mandatory. For those who may want to do a prepared monologue for either night of auditions, he’ll see those (the prepared monologues) first…then proceed with cold readings from the script with everyone for the rest of the night (for each night of the auditions). If one decides to prepare/perform a monologue, then something from ‘GODOT, another Beckett piece, or something else from an absurdist playwright would all be the preference.
PLEASE NOTE: As much as we  strive to be as inclusive as possible for all kinds of actors/theatre artists, in this case, we must be careful to keep all the roles played by men (and a boy) in our production, given the Beckett estate’s position when it comes to gender.
