Auditions Aug. 31-Sept 2 for MCC’s ‘Dracula’s Ship’
The McCook Community College Theater department will host auditions for “Dracula’s Ship” Aug. 31 through Sept. 2.
“Dracula’s Ship” is a new play written by Mark Hardiman, theater instructor at MCC. Inspired by Bram Stoker’s original text, it is the story of a crew that discovers vampires aboard their ship and the crew’s subsequent struggle to survive.
The play will include original characters as well as new ones.
Auditions will be from 6-8 p.m. each night in the Weeth Theater in Tipton Hall. This includes movement exercises and reading from selected texts.
The production will be Oct. 28-29. Rehearsals will be at 6:30 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
There are roles for young men and women. Those interested in backstage duties, stage management or assisting should attend auditions for a brief discussion with the director.
“We are also interested in musicians or actor/musicians,” said Hardiman.
Questions about the play or about scheduling an alternate time to audition can be directed to Hardiman at firstname.lastname@example.org or (308) 345-8173.
