Radio Play Auditions Are This Saturday And Sunday, June 26 And 27 For Hamilton-Gibson’s Tune In To Radio HG Festival
Open auditions are at 4 p.m. this Saturday, June 26 and at 1 p.m. this Sunday, June 27 in the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro for male and female performers of all ages and races to try out for radio plays being presented during Hamilton-Gibson’s Tune in to Radio HG Festival.
No previous acting experience is required. Actors do not memorize lines, wear costumes or makeup. They read their lines from their scripts and use only their voices to create characters. Rehearsals will be scheduled based on availability.
“No one has to register to audition,” said Gabe Hakvaag. “Just be there at the time listed on Saturday or Sunday.”
Tune in to Radio HG Festival performances will be at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 20 and 21 and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 22 in the Deane Center’s Coolidge Theatre at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.
The same four radio plays will be performed for each show. The radio plays are: “Sam Spade” with Mitch Kreisler directing; “Easy Aces” with Sarah Duterte directing; “The Thin Man” with Yolie Canales directing; and “Gunsmoke” with Hakvaag directing.
For the performances, the theatre will be transformed into WBFR studios with a live audience watching actors stand before mics with their scripts in hand, while live sound effects and music are combined to create an old-fashioned program of radio plays.
