“Treasure Island” auditions at FLC

By
From page B6 | February 08, 2013 |

The Falcon’s Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College calls for actors from the community to audition Monday, Feb. 11 for its spring production of “Treasure Island.”

Based on the masterful adventure novel by Robert Louis Stevenson and adapted by Ken Ludwig, “Treasure Island” is an unforgettable adventure of treachery and mayhem featuring a host of legendary swashbucklers.

At the center of it all are Jim Hawkins, a 14-year-old boy who longs for adventure, and the infamous Long John Silver, an unscrupulous buccaneer-rogue whose greedy quest for gold, coupled with his affection for Jim, cannot help but win the heart of every soul who has ever longed for romance, treasure and adventure.

Auditioners must prepare a monologue that is no more than 90-seconds-long from any classical play. Please no teleplays or screenplays or passages from novels or song lyrics and no original writing.

This monologue must be memorized and should best portray the actor’s strengths. It can be of any genre.

Auditioners who are called back will also be asked to audition by way of cold readings from the text. Therefore, it is recommended that auditioners be familiar with the story of “Treasure Island” before auditioning.

It is requested that auditioners bring a full-sized photo-headshot and résumé of acting experience, if available, but this is not required.

Auditions and call-backs are expected to run until approximately 10 p.m. each night. Auditions will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb.11, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Auditions will take place in the drama lab (PAC-1170) of the Harris Center on the Folsom campus of Folsom Lake College, 10 College Parkway in Folsom.

Call backs will be held by invitation only on Tuesday, Feb. 12 and 13 at 6:30 p.m.

For a map go to flc.losrios.edu and click on “Maps,” then select “Main Folsom campus.” Parking permits for a $1 are available at kiosks located throughout the parking lots.

Approximate rehearsal dates and times are Monday, Feb. 25 through April 18, evenings and some weekend afternoons. Minor conflicts with these dates are permissible. Significant conflicts with these dates are not allowed.

Performance dates for “Treasure Island” are April 19 through May 5, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Additional performances are Saturday, April 20 at 2 p.m., Thursday, April 25 at 7:30 p.m., Friday, April 26 at 10 a.m., and Friday, May 3 at 10 a.m.
