Eden Prairie Players will be holding auditions for our 2018 Collection of One Acts, featuring a new selection of eight original plays, on July 9 and 10. We have 21 roles to fill. Details of the plays are below.
Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Christmas Carol
Set in the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, mining company boss Ebenezer Scrooge meets the spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, rekindling a spark of humanity in his hardened heart. A live acoustic band brings Parton’s original score to life in this “concert style” presentation of a musical reimagining of a holiday classic.
Blinking Eye Theatre is seeking a diverse cast for its original Fringe show, Swipe Right.
Swipe Right is an original comedy by Riley Parham that satirically analyzes what it would be like if we talked to each other in real life the same way people talk through text and dating apps like Tinder. Anyone who's been on a dating app has seen some absolutely absurd, and potentially hysterical, messages. Jump into a world where people introduce themselves OK Cupid style and fail or succeed based on the first message they send.
CAUGHT, by Christopher Chen, directed by Rick Shiomi
Performance Venue: Dowling Studio of the Guthrie Theater
Fearless Comedy Productions is casting for our original fall production, The Riddle of the Mummy! Directed by Lauren Haven and written by Megan Slawson.
The Mummy is dead, again, and his closest friends and enemies gather for what they hope is their long awaited pay day at his garish Egyptian themed estate. They are annoyed to find the night will be the furthest thing from simple when an annoying sphinx complicates the will reading. Petty squabbles emerge between fish and vampires, a monster finds loves, all while a nosey reporter tries to get a story at any cost.
