Four Armenian-speaking actors and actresses in their 20s or early 30s are being sought for a theatrical performance in front of a massive audience at the Alex Theatre on October 2.
More than 1,200 people are expected at the event–organized by the Hamazkayin Cultural Society–in commemoration of the Armenian alphabet’s 1600th anniversary.
The 10-minute performance piece–developed specifically for the event–will be a movement-driven dramatization of a choral poem by Siamanto. It will be collaboratively staged by Elly Award-winning director Aram Kouyoumdjian and original music composer Sebu Simonian of the band Aviatic. All members of the ensemble will have a substantial line load.
The auditions–which will consist of cold readings from the script–will be held on Tuesday–September 6–at 8:00 pm–at 407 E. Colorado Street in Glendale (near Jackson; entrance to the building is from the rear).
Aside from the age and language requiremen’s mentioned above–auditioners must be physically fit–have strong voices–and be able to make rehearsals during the last two weeks in September.
