The Mountaintop Virtual Auditions

AUDITIONS: July 13
LOOKING FOR:  Men and women ages 20 and up!  No previous theatre experience is required to participate. All are welcome.

 IMPORTANT DATES

Rehearsals: Dates of commitment are July 14 – August 11, 2020, three to five days out of the week. The specific times of rehearsals will be based around the actors’ availability, as much as possible. Additional rehearsal time may be scheduled, if necessary.

Performances: The performance will stream online on August 11, with a live talk-back to follow.

QCT will present the thought-provoking and inspiring play THE MOUNTAINTOP, by Katori Hall, in a production created specially for “the virtual stage.” Auditions, rehearsals and the performance will all be held online.

Two actors are needed: a black male to play Martin Luther King, Jr. at the age of 39; and a black female to play Camae, a housekeeper who is more than she appears, age between 25 and 50.

If interested in auditioning, take note of the following:

1. As this is a “virtual” performance, you must have access to a computer or tablet with a functional camera and microphone. If this will prohibit you from participating, please contact QCT.

2. Similarly, you must have access to reliable internet service to participate in the virtual rehearsals and the performance recording. If this will prohibit you from participating, please contact QCT.

3. Auditions will be held as individual 10-minute sessions via Zoom video chat. Instructions on accessing the appropriate Zoom meeting room will be sent to you prior to the audition.

4. To prepare for the audition, please read the entire script: https://www.1qct.org/on-stage/auditions/audition-materials/ (password: membership) Specific pages that will be used for the audition will be announced at a later date. Check the QCT website and/or Facebook page.

5. Performers age 20 and up, of all experience levels, are welcome to audition.

6. It is the intention of QCT to cast the play The Mountaintop with authentic representation of the characters; therefore, the roles will be cast specific to their race and gender as written by the playwright.

 

Written by American playwright Katori Hall, The Mountaintop is a gripping re-imagination of events the night before the assassination of the civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. On April 3, 1968, after delivering one of his most memorable speeches, an exhausted Dr. King retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel while a storm rages outside. When a mysterious stranger arrives with some surprising news, King is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy to his people.

In this dark comedy, varsity cheerleader Agnes dives into her late sister Tilly’s Dungeons and Dragons game to learn more about a sibling she never really understood. Alongside Tilly’s geeky friends, Agnes battles her way through psychotic fairies, shapeshifting slime monsters and wisecracking demons while juggling her own (equally treacherous) high-school social life.
