"The Shape Of Things" Stage Play Needs Cast

Nyack, NY, United StatesID: 207634Exp: 2/21/2023

Auditions for "The Shape Of Things" play. Seeking actors. Please see the breakdown below. About the project: The Shape of Things is a modern love story that follows the relationship between Adam and Evelyn. The play raises questions about the boundaries between creation and destruction. How far would you go for art? For love? These are some of the questions asked in this modern day Pygmalion. After a chance meeting, Evelyn and Adam become embroiled in an intense love affair. Under Evelyn’s influence, Adam goes to great lengths to improve his appearance and character — with both positive and negative results. The Shape of Things, which originally starred Paul Rudd and Rachel Weisz in both the stage and film versions, challenges the audience’s ideas about art, relationships and love itself. Additional info: NOTE: This production contains some adult situations and language. Sides from the script will be made available at the audition. All roles available. Casting is open to all ethnicities, races, and gender identifications. Newcomers are especially welcomed. Every auditioner must be fully vaccinated. Callbacks: Thursday February 23 2023 at 7pm (by invitation only). Performances: Friday May 12, 2023 thru Saturday June 3, 2023 (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays with possible Wednesday and Thursdays).
