Newton, NC – Auditions are now open via video for Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry.

Spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a 1940s radio broadcast of the master of suspense’s earlier films. With The Lodger, Sabotage, and The 39 Steps, Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is a triple feature, complete with vintage commercials, that recreates a daring train chase, a serial killer’s ominous presence, and a devastating explosion through the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring.

The show calls for a cast of 3 men and 2 women. The director is looking for 5 dynamic actors that have the ability to quickly transform into multiple roles and have strong comic timing. Please submit a video of a monologue not to exceed 60 seconds to [email protected]. If you can play an instrument, please include a short clip in addition to the monologue. Attach a headshot or candid photo and a resume or list of your theatrical experience. Materials must be submitted by 10:00 pm, Friday, December 4, 2020.

We are committed to diversity and inclusion. This production will operate on an expeditious rehearsal schedule. After being cast, actors will have a period of time to familiarize themselves with the script and will be expected to be ready for rehearsals beginning in early January with lines memorized. Performances are scheduled to begin January 29, 2021, but are subject to change. Some or all rehearsals will be online. Performances will be livestreamed or recorded.

The show will be directed by Caleb Sigmon and is produced by Hickory Park Furniture.

The Creative Team has completed COVID-19 training through COUNT ON ME NC and, alongside The Green Room Community Theatre, will be implementing enhanced safety measures to ensure the safety of all performers.
