Auditions for our next two shows are coming up in December!
The Discovery Channel has 'Shark Week', but Theatre of Dare has 'AUDITION WEEK'!
We've got two great but very different shows to kick off 2020, and we'd love for you to be a part of one or both of them! Auditions for both shows will be held the first week of December, so come on out to the Manteo Public Library and/or the Lost Colony Building and join us on stage in the New Year! We'll also be looking for folks to help out with tech, set, costuming and ticketing, so if you've ever wanted to join in the fun, now's your chance!
BECKY SHAW is an amusing and cleverly constructed comedy about ambition, the cost of being truthful and the perils of a blind date. The fast and funny dialogue navigates between five distinctively perverse and disingenuously dysfunctional characters.
DIRECTOR: Daniel Ziegler
CASTING: 3 women, 2 men.
AUDITIONS: December 3-4-5, 7-9 p.m. at the Manteo Public Library, 700 U.S. 64, Manteo.
SHOW DATES: January 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, and 19.
MAME is the hit Broadway musical about a woman whose eccentric, bohemian lifestyle is interrupted when her late brother's son is entrusted to her care. Rather than adapt to societal standards about child-rearing, money-making and romance, Mame does everything with her own funny flair. It's a brassy, tuneful, hilarious and touching adaptation of Patrick Dennis' bestselling book, Auntie Mame.
DIRECTOR: Stuart Parks II
CASTING: At least 30 people, including principals, supporting roles, and ensemble. We are also on the lookout for one talented 10-15 year-old boy to play the role of pre-teen Patrick Dennis.
AUDITIONS: December 3-4-5, 7-9 p.m. at the Lost Colony Administration Building, right next door to the Elizabethan Gardens.
SHOW DATES: February 21, 22, 23, 28, 29 and March 1.
