The Theatre School @ North Coast Rep will be auditioning actors ages 4-94 for “I Smile at the Sun” directed by Heather Pauley on Monday, Nov. 25, from 4 to 6 p.m. The play will be presented at North Coast Repertory Theatre Jan. 18 and 19, 2014, at 11 a.m.
Written by Judith Barrett Lawson, “I Smile at the Sun: Verse for Children and Misidentified Grown-Ups,” is part of the school’s family initiative, providing opportunities for families to perform together. Solo actors and musicians are also encouraged to audition. Everyone who auditions will perform in the show. Actors are asked to memorize a short poem and may be asked to read a selected poem from the script.
Lawson is a critically acclaimed writer, lyricist and development executive. “I Smile at the Sun,” was first produced at the Two Roads Theater and praised by the Los Angeles Times as “poignant and perky.”
Auditions will be held at The Theatre School @ North Coast Rep, 987 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Suite 991 D in Solana Beach by appointment. There is a $125 production fee payable at the time of audition. Family discounts and need-based scholarships are available. Rehearsals start the week of Dec. 2. Rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays; however, not all actors will be called for every rehearsal.
To schedule an audition appointment, please email Siobhan@northcoastrep.org. Walk-ins will be auditioned as time permits.
