DRT auditions for the adults-only cast of Alfred Hitchcock's "39 Steps," adapted by Patrick Barlow from the Novel by John Buchnan, will be held at 913 Ninth St., Durham, NC, in the auditorium of EK Powe Elementary School, beginning at noon this Saturday, March 5th and again on Monday, March 7th starting at 6:00 pm - Auditions will be loose and relaxed - some improvisation and some cold readings from the script (you'll have to time look it over before you take it on stage)
Plans for our production of "39 Steps" are still a bit unclear - not our commitment to producing the hysterically funny, award-winning show, we are tremendously pleased to hold the rights to produce this play. Our vision of how DRT produces shows for adult only audiences (or mature teens) is actively taking shape - Because of this we're talking about where to present our adult MainStage play (dinner theatre? cabaret? formal auditorium? nightclub?) and when - spring, summer, next spring -
A good deal of our thinking is around the idea of forming a DRT adult acting troupe that works together year-round and has a major role in deciding what plays to do, etc. (in partnership with the DRT artistic director) So, we will hold two auditions at once this week: 1) auditions for specific parts in "The 39 Steps" and 2) a first audition/inquiry into the idea of a DRT adult acting troupe.
All adult (including young adults) actors are invited to attend these important, and exciting auditions. Who know what will happen next?
Warmly, Jenny Justice
