MU_logoTARTUFFE
Miami University
May 2-6
Gates-Abegglen Theatre [Oxford]

Directed by Lewis Magruder

He’s charismatic. He’s self-righteous. He’s a crook! He’s Tartuffe, the central figure in this classic farce by Moliere. When Orgon falls for Tartuffe’s charms, his wife and family hatch a plan to save the family fortune before it’s too late. They must expose Tartuffe for the hypocrite he is! Quick banter, physical comedy, and just a dash of deception rule the day as the scoundrel gets his just desserts.

Seeking Talent for Training Video Production

MU_logoThe Scripps Gerontology Center at Miami U. in Oxford is filming two short training videos to be used with nursing home staff.  Both videos will be posted on web pages and probably YouTube.  We have a small budget to pay some actors and actresses a bit for their time.  We have scheduled filming the week of September 25 and may have a rehearsal time on the 24th.  One day that week will likely be plenty for filming depending on your character. Some of the actors are in only one video, others are in both. Some of the characters have already been created in a whiteboard video which is why are looking for particular types.

We’re looking for:

  • 2 men—–late 20s to 60s. One activity director, one nutritionist. Each role is very small.
  • African-American male.  Family member of nursing home resident in one video, nurse in the other.
  • African-American female.  Stage age 70-85 (nursing home resident age).  One video.
  • Asian female–late 20s to 60s.  Both videos.

Contact Jane Straker, Scripps Gerontology Center (strakejk@miamioh.edu or 513.529.5949) for more information or to apply.

A note or e-mail with a bit about your experience and a head shot would be helpful.

mu_rosencrantz-and-guildenstern-are-dead-logoROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD
Miami University
Nov. 16-20
Gates-Abegglen Theatre [Oxford]

Directed by Lewis Magruder

Acclaimed as a modern tragicomedy masterpiece, the story follows the inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the absurd points of view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s classic. This internationally acclaimed play is playwright Tom Stoppard’s most famous work, an absurd and clever journey where reality and illusion intermix.
