Auditions to be held for radio dramas at Quick Center


Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts will hold auditions Tuesday, Oct. 29 for a series of radio dramas to be performed this season. Auditions will be held by appointment starting at 7 p.m. and both seasoned veterans and novices are welcome.

The first radio drama will be presented Saturday, Nov. 23. The title of the evening is "High Adventure on the Radio" and the show will include a fantastic tale of undercover agents in Nazi territory, a ridiculously implausible children's program and a hair-raising story of three men trapped in a lighthouse with thousands of rats clawing their way in.

The second radio drama, "Science Fiction from the Golden Age," will show what writers of the past thought of the future. It will take place on Saturday, Feb. 8 and features an overpopulated society in which man hunts man, hostile invading aliens and a quirky scientific courtroom drama. The third show, "Classic Crime Fighters," is a visit with vintage heroes from cowboys to private detectives. The performance date is Saturday, March 29.

All three shows will take place in the Wien Experimental Theatre under the direction of Daniel Smith. Those auditioning will be asked to read new material and should not prepare an audition piece. Radio or voice over experience is a plus, but not required.

To schedule an appointment during audition hours, call the Quick Center box office at (203) 254-4010 or toll free at 1-877-ARTS-396.
