The 2014-2015 season

ATC: 44 Plays for 44 Presidents (7, 12 Sept)



Steve Challens‚ who previously directed the hilarious Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) for the ATC‚ will be holding auditions for the equally madcap 44 Plays for 44 Presidents‚ to be performed in the Studio January 22-24 and 28-31‚ 2015.

44 Plays is a riotous romp through the entirety of US history. It was first performed in 2002‚ but has been updated to bring us all the way to Obama!

We will need a minimum of five adults of any age — or gender! Any of the roles can be played by either men or women and the director will be casting based on group chemistry and spirit.At the same time both silly and very smart‚ this fast-paced script will give you the opportunity to play multiple roles — and play with a whole lotta props! We would encourage our Improv Sunday peeps to come out of the woodwork for this one‚ but auditions are open to everyone.

Sunday 7 September from 14.00 – 16.00
Friday 12 September from 20.00 – 22.00
For more information and to confirm your audition date, please email the director:stephenchallens@gmail.com

ATC: Doubt (21-25 Oct 2014)

Doubt: A Parable is the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play that mesmerizes the audience in a conflict of consciousness and convictions. Set in 1964, an era of great controversy and modernity in the Catholic Church, allegations flare tempers and question beliefs when the priest of St Nicholas Church and School is accused by two nuns of having an inappropriate relationship with the school’s only black student. Filled with intense drama and rich text, the play explores much more than the guilt or innocence of the accused but rather is a beautifully crafted exploration of the loneliness, the darkness and the pain caused by doubt.

Tickets available here.

ETC: Don Juan… and the Stone Guest (4-9 Nov 2014)

This is the tragi-comic life of Don Juan, told as a continuous story through excerpts of the plays of 3 European dramatists:

Dom Juan by Molière, a comedy in a modern English translation by Neil Bartlett, with surtitles in French: directed by Michelle Ryan

The Stone Guest by Pushkin, a romance performed in Russian, with surtitles in English, directed by Christine Marchand

El burlador de Sevilla by Tirso de Molina, a drama performed in Spanish, with surtitles in English, directed by Diana Cardona

At the start, Don Juan commits a terrible crime, which comes back to haunt him at the end ; but not before he has seduced several women, forcefully expressed his shocking views on life, been chased into exile, shown courage in the face of danger, and generally driven his companion (called Sganarelle, Leporello, or Catalinon according to the play) to despair.
