Posted: Tuesday, January 16, 2018, 9:47am

Curtain Players on Sunday evening February 11 conducts an open audition for its production of Eugene Ionesco's Exit the King. 

Registration is at 6:30 PM, with the tryout beginning at 7 o'clock, at the 5691 Harlem Road (Galena OH 43021) playhouse. This is an open audition. Roles are not cast in advance.

Actors are encouraged to come to auditions familiar with the script and ready to read cuttings from the script. Every effort will be made to give actors equal chances to read. Resumes and head shots are helpful.

Casting decisions are made by the director and a casting committee comprised of a member of the theatre board, a general member of the organization, and individuals of the director's choosing.

In Ionesco's most accessible Absurdist drama, it's King Berenger's dying day and also the last day of the universe. Everything is falling apart – from his own palace to the very physics of the solar system. Will his commands to restore order be enough? Or will we fade into the mist?

Danielle Mari is directing Exit the King. She directed The Skin of Our Teeth at the Harlem Road playhouse in 2016, earning an Excellence in Direction nomination from the Theatre Roundtable.
