Who: Quad C Theatre at Collin County Community College.

What: "Light Up the Sky" by Moss Hart. Directed by Rosemary K. Andress.

Seeking: 4 women, 9 men. Ages 20 - 50. Lots of "character" roles (accents & strange special skills are a plus!)

Where: The Black Box Theatre, on the Spring Creek campus of Collin County Community College, Jupiter Road, between Spring Creek Parkway and Parker Road. (I-75 N, exit Spring Creek Pkwy-East, R on Jupiter, L into campus).


Prepare: A 1-2 minute monologue. The play is a comedy, so comedic monologues are most appropriate. No Shakespeare, Moliere or other classical/verse pieces. Feel free to use material from Light Up the Sky or from Hart's other plays. Noel Coward would be another appropriate choice. It is strongly recommended that you read the play before auditioning.

Rehearse: Rehearsals begin immediately. Rehearsals will generally be Monday - Friday, 7:00 - 10:30pm and Sunday, 2:00 - 6:00 pm.

Plot: "Light Up the Sky" is a delightful comedy that revolves around a group of New York theatre-folk who attend the opening of their new play in Boston. The opening of their new play has led the group to believe it is a flop. Instantly they turn against themselves, the production and the playwright... and savagely proceed to destroy themselves and all their former hopes.
