Our Next Production:

Fall 2015
ASBURY MEMORIAL THEATRE COMPANY

Asbury Memorial Theatre's Fall Production Auditions for "The 39 Steps" will be held Sept. 14-15 from 7-9 p.m.



Information:
Based off of Alfred Hitchcock's classic film, of the same title, "The 39 Steps" retells the story of an unassuming man, Richard Hannay, thrust into a world of spies, double agents, and a secret society- with a small troupe of actors playing all the characters. Hannay must get valuable information into the right hands before his life, and pencil mustache, are wiped out.

Audition Information:
Audition Dates: Sept 14th and 15th starting at 7:00 each night.

Auditions will consist of cold reads. Scripts will be available on site. Groups of 2(or more) will be brought in and given a scene. They will have a few minutes to review and then perform. Then they will be given direction to try it differently. After which, they will be either excused or asked to standby to read with another performer.

Performers are asked to bring a headshot or recent photo, as well as provide an acting resume and fill out an audition form.

The cast will be selected and notified by Sept 18th. Our first read thru will be Sept 25th at 7.

Role Information:
Richard Hannay: (Caucasian/ Male/ 30's or 40's) Lead. Athletic/Average build with "chiseled" features- think atypical 1930's movie star Errol Flynn or Clark Gable. And don't forget the pencil mustache. Must be able to execute a British Accent. Lead character only.

Woman: (Caucasian/ Female/ 20's - 40's) 1930's glamour movie star quality think-Grace Kelly, Ava Gardner, or Ingrid Bergman. She plays 3 different women with 3 different dialects- so, versatility and ability to execute British, Scottish, and German accents are important

4 Clowns (Ensemble): (Any Ethnicity/ Male/ 20's to 50's) Any build, but should be physically fit- able to perform numerous quick changes. Plays various characters. Versatility and ability to do various European accents important. Some cross-dressing required.

Show Information:
The show is a farcical face paced "Film Noire" styled romp that involves rotating set pieces, multiple costume quick changes, and a fair share of shadow play. It's a little James Bond and a lotta Benny Hill (or Monty Python).

Director Bio: Travis Hornsby is a graduate of Armstrong State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre. He is excited to be back in Savannah directing at Asbury Memorial Theatre. Previously, he has directed Cactus Flower and The Mystery of Irma Vep with the Armstrong Masquers Theatre, and has directed his original farcical adaptation of A Christmas Carol at ARTworks in Beaufort, SC. As a lover of theatre, he also holds credits as a costumer, set designer, stage manager, actor, prop master, stage hand, and playwright. Some favorite productions have been The Producers, Jekyll and Hyde, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Spring Awakening, Barnum, Godspell, The Drowsy Chaperone, and State Fair. Looking ahead, he will be designing for Red Cedar Elementary's upcoming production of Lion King Jr and is in talks to direct some other shows locally. Special thanks to friends and family for continued support in all things theatre.


Coming in early March 2016:
Gilbert and Sullivan's "HMS Pinafore"
