Auditions at Quick Center for live radio broadcast


Fairfield University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts will hold auditions for its live radio drama "Sensual French Tales of Temptation and Suspense" on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 7 p.m. Auditions are open to the general public.

This Black Box Theatre production will feature delightful tales of love, war and madness by the 19th century master of the French short story, Guy De Maupassant. Translated and adapted especially for this production by Bob Adrian and directed by Bill Raymond, this show is part of "A French Showcase: Evolving Arts," which is a perspective of French contribution to the Arts and Letters.

"Sensual French Tales" will play two performances before a live audience in the Quick Center's Wien Experimental Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 16, at 3 and 8 p.m. It will be broadcast live on WVOF, the university's radio station.

Those interested in auditioning should bring a piece to read, no more than two minutes in length. Auditioners should be concerned with voice quality only and not be dissuaded by physical attributes, age or gender.

Rehearsals for "Sensual French Tales" will be limited to the week before the performance since radio roles were always performed with scripts in hand and not memorized. For more information, call the Quick center at (203) 254-4242.
