Audition Notice: Reasons To Be Pretty

neil-labute

The next STG production, in association with Aaron Pennie and Gary Hurr, will be Reasons To Be Pretty by Neil LaBute in April 2017.

Auditions will be held in a Glasgow venue (to be confirmed) on:

Sunday the 5th February, from 12pm onwards (20 minute slots)

Wednesday the 8th February, 6pm onwards (20 minute slots)

Characters: 2 Male, 2 Female (Age range – late 20’s to early 30’s)

If you’re interested please prepare a 2-3 minute monologue from a contemporary American play. There will also be an opportunity to work shop scenes from the play.

Synopsis:

Greg’s tight-knit social circle is thrown into turmoil when his offhand remarks about a female coworker’s pretty face and his own girlfriend Steph’s lack thereof get back to Steph. But that’s just the beginning. Greg’s best buddy, Kent, and Kent’s wife, Carly, also enter into the picture, and the emotional equation becomes exponentially more complicated. As their relationships crumble, the four friends are forced to confront a sea of deceit, infidelity, and betrayed trust in their journey to answer that oh-so-American question: How much is pretty worth?

Rehearsals start on the week beginning the 20th of February, for two nights a week, depending on cast availability.

STG are a Community Theatre Group and a registered charity: Registered charity number: SC042388

The show is unpaid.

Week of production is 17th to the 22nd of April 2017 at Websters Theatre.

New Show – Glengarry Glen Ross

Here’s the poster for our next full-length show!

Glengarry Glen Ross by David Mamet – a play about desperate real estate agents using ruthless methods to sell subpar properties to naive buyers. Packed full of wit, swearing, and double-dealing.

The tiny Gothics (hour long melodrama/horrors from the Victorian age) are still under construction (keep getting in touch if you’re interested). 

We’ll be putting out an audition notice for Glengarry Glen Ross soon – meanwhile you can already buy tickets!
