Audition Notice for Staged Readings


The second show (or shows) of the 2019 HCPAC Season will be a series of Staged Readings. Actors and Directors are needed for the shows. Auditions will be held for actors ages 11 and up on March 4 & 5 from 6:30 to 8:30 at the theatre, located at 400 Gibson Road in Athens.

What exactly is a staged reading? Simply put, it is a form of theatre without full sets or costumes. A Staged Reading is a group of actors enacting a script while 'reading', rather than by memorizing the lines.
For new actors and directors, staged readings are a way to test the waters. For the seasoned actor or director, the challenge is to bring a show to life for the audience without using sets, costumes or props.
Performance dates will be April 4-14th. Each show will be performed once each weekend (Middle Schooling' It will be the Sunday matinee show) The shows that will be performed are:
The Underpants, adapted by Steve Martin
Born Yesterday, written by Garson Kanin
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike - written by Christopher Durang
Middle Schoolin' It, a compilation of short plays for & by students
Still not sure what this is all about - give us a call at 903-675-3908, email us at or come out on March 4 or 5th and we will explain it all to you.
