BACKSTAGE

From playwright Stephen Miles, “Backstage” follows the pitfalls and pratfalls that besiege a theatrical production in modern times. From the actors to the prop master to the costumer, director, lighting, and special effects, it’s a set-up for disaster and you can see how it all happens with a private, behind-the-scenes view from the ‘green room.’ A hilarious look at what makes the “play the thing.”

The answer she receives is one that will become the most famous newspaper editorial of all time.

About the show

Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s finest comedies. Beatrice and Benedick disdain love and each other – which makes them a perfect match. If they can’t see how much they belong together, perhaps they can be tricked into it. Or maybe the villain Don John will succeed in destroying the marriage between the young lovers, Claudio and Hero, and poison everyone’s faith in love. Themes of honor, shame, and politics collide in Shakespeare’s comedic look at how we love.

This production will be set in America, 1945 at the end of World War II.

The show will be performed in the Cantey V. Sutton Theatre. You can see more information about the show and order tickets from our Much Ado show page.

About the auditions

Please prepare a one minute monologue to perform at the auditions. If you are unable to prepare a Shakespearean monologue in time, you may perform/read the following:

 

Sonnet 130

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.

Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte: Call for Submissions for Development of New Musical

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

 

actors theatre of charlotte
Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte would like to announce that Charles Randolph-Wright, director of Broadway’s MOTOWN THE MUSICAL, and Grammy Award-winning recording artist, BeBe Winans, will be in residence from October 6th through October 10th to develop their new musical, WHERE WE BELONG. With a book by Mr. Randolph-Wright and music and lyrics by BeBe Winans, this will give local actors an opportunity to work with these internationally renowned artists in their efforts to bring this inspiring true story from the page to the stage.

 

The workshop will rehearse weeknights on Monday, October 6th through Thursday, October 9th from 6:00 PM till 10:00 PM with tentative plans to present a private, informal reading the evening of the 9th. Note that while we will be looking to cast as close to type as possible, we are most interested in finding local artists who are eager to be part of the development of this new piece.
